Background/Button Tutorial

Awhile back some of you asked me how I changed my background. Well I've decided to attempt a tutorial so you guys can change your backgrounds as well if you wish.

1st. Find a photo that you want to be your background.

2nd. Go to picnik.com and upload your photo...here you can edit the photo by putting a border or change colors, etc.

3rd. Once your picture is how you want it you need to upload it on tho Photobucket.com

4th. Here is the HTML code that you are going to be using.

Go HERE to get it....for some reason blogger keeps deleting the code when I type it in. Strange. I just found this site and how cool are those Twilight backgrounds!!!!


5th. Now, grab the DIRECT LINK from your photo on photobucket. Insert it where it says, ("ENTER YOUR LINK HERE") in between the quotes. ("")

6th. Go to customize....add a gadget....go to the HTML/Javascript....it's here where you are going to put in the code.

That's it!!!!

*for code above you want to erase "no repeat" and type in repeat*


So I figured out how to make a button for my blog as well. I found a great blog that gives an awesome tutorial. Go here for it.

Oh my goodness...there is no way I could do all of that without fouling up my entire blog forever! When I first started blogging, my daughter and I got one of those blinkie things stuck on my header and we couldn't figure out how to get it off! I, finally, had no other choice but to start over with a new blog design. It was so frustrating!

I'll just live vicariously through yours, I guess. :)

Thanks for the tutorial. You lost me on Nr. 5, so I will have to do this when I have lots of time.
I added your button to my site though! That is cool!

Hey-something is up w/ your profile page. It's been like this twice now (I thought first time was a fluke) but on your profile page to get to your blog your blog name isn't there, just a period. Very weird. You can still click on the period to link to your blog, but I think you somehow erased the name of your blog right there?
