Well, thankfully I got past the intimidation of it all and decided to take on the challenge and I humbly began my journey of figuring out what a "gadget" or "widget" was and how I was going to design our template (PS when I say "design" our template, I mean find a free blogger template online somewhere- I'm not even going to attempt figuring out all these stupid HTML codes!). I stayed up late night after late night trying to get everything set up so that it was actually functional! I will NEVER be a computer programer that's for sure! (Kudos to my dad who's gone back to school to figure this stuff out- you're a smart man!)
So I must say that tonight I am skeptically proud of myself for thinking that I might just have figured out how to do the whole "Grab Our Button" thing that so many of you bloggers out there have! I am scared to even announce it truthfully because I only think I have it figured out... But feel free to check it out on the right side of the blog under the "About Me" section and let me know if I did it right!
For those of you who are like me about three months ago and are sitting there wondering what the heck a "button" is.. from what I gather, it's just a nifty way to promote your blog. Other's can grab your button and put in on their blog as a way of showing their support. So yeah, it doesn't sound so exciting when I say it like that... but everyone's doing it, so it must be cool! (o; I think I said that in Jr High to my parents as well.
Well, my head hurts from all this copying and pasting of HTML codes to figure out exactly how this thing was to work, so I think it's time for bed- but just thought I'd share! And a BIG thanks to all the incredibly gifted and talented adoption blogging mama's out there who don't seem to judge all the new-bee's that come along and try and copy some of your ideas! (o;
