Give Books for Christmas Giveaway Hop Buttons

Here are buttons and instructions for putting them on your blog. All bloggers must put the button in their sidebar.

If you're a blog reader and want to earn extra entries for Inksplasher's prize, put a button in your sidebar, then leave a comment on this post with your blog URL.


220 px button (for standard sidebar)

125 px button (for smaller sidebar)

To Install the Buttons on Blogger

If you have one sidebar, use the bigger button (220 px). If you have two sidebars, use the smaller button (125 px).

  1. Put your cursor in the box below the button and copy all of the code. The easiest way to do this is to place your cursor in the box, then press control + a. This highlights all the text in the box. Then press control + c to copy it.

  2. Go to your blog's dashboard and click Design. This should take you to Add and Arrange Page Elements.

  3. Click on Add Gadget.

  4. Scroll down the list and find the one that says HTML/JavaScript. Click on it.

  5. Paste the code into the large Content box. You can type in a Title if you want. Click the orange Save button. If you get a message that says there are illegal characters, it means you didn't get all the code. Go back to Step 1 and recopy the code.

  6. The button will display at the top of your sidebar. While on the Page Elements page, you can drag the new gadget box to another position on your sidebar, if you want. Then click the orange Save button.
That should do it. Let me know if you have any problems.
