Don’t be one of those folks who rush right in and say, ‘never’! Square is good…square is solid… Sure, a square won’t fit well inside a circle, but so what? The last hip thing a circle did popped off your shirt and rolled away already. So, let’s talk about squares. Squares make great buttons (Stay with me here…the logic is circular.) and blog buttons are a good way to promote your blog. Promoting your blog is definitely hip!
Yeah. But, what’s hip about a blog button … a cone shaped, circle-loving, naysayer might ask. This is where I close the circle. All right, squares aren’t inherently ‘hip’ —they have to overcome Society’s infatuation with curvy shapes—but, when used properly, they are a cool foundation for friendship and support. Here’s how the whole thing works: I post your button on my page, and you post my button on yours. Each of us benefits from a win-win. Love abounds! It is always hip to show love and support, right? So, get off your butt-on and make a blog button so we can support one another.
Now, do you see how hip squares are? So, where do I find your button, you ask. All you need to do is copy the following picture into a Post (in Compose mode) than switch the post to HTML mode to capture the code for your widget. Before you paste the code it into the TEXT widget remember to click the box on the top-right of the widget and change from HTML to Rich Text Format (RTF).
For those of you who don’t have a button and don’t know how to make one …and have anxiety attacks at the thought of anything involving code: don’t worry, I’ll help you. You can put down the Mylanta bottle! Look for my upcoming post entitled (very cleverly) “How to Make a Blog Button and Remain Sane.” Take your time. There’s no hurry. My feature of friend’s buttons will be updated periodically to include new friends. All of my little button buddies will have a permanent home on my Blogg Roll page: as you can see from the post below, it is a very hip place. It’s not a gated community…but, circles can just roll on by.
