I Has A Button

I have a new button over there, on the left. It is as cute as a . . .well, you know. Keely helped me figure out how to make the little form with code you can grab. She sent me a screen shot of her html widget (doesn't that sound so naughty?) and I slavishly copied it. When I got it to work I felt like I'd been given an honorary degree in CS. Though I don't think they really give those out.

You can copy the code under the button, then in your blog layout, you can "add a gadget," then click "html/javascript," then paste the code into the box, and Bob's your uncle. It's not like you have to. Just if you're into it. I won't be hurt if you don't. I'm not sure why buttons are a thing, but I don't make the rules. So really, you should just take the button. Why are you rocking the boat?

What are y'all up to? I think I might be on the hook to take the kids to a corn maze this afternoon. It didn't happen yesterday, 'cause Pretty Neighbor rescued us with a cookout invitation, but today might be the day.

I love the new button! I'll be back to snag it later...I've been messing around on my own blog, and it is not behaving well. I think I need some fresh air...

I often wish we could be whisked up there for fall festivities. We have wannabe corn mazes here, but in the tropics, it ends up feeling like you're working your way out of a marshy steamy Vietnamese jungle, your machetes no use against the mosquito swarms, and why is this fun??

Oh, and nice button and all. I'd wear it on my lapel if I could.

I added it with care :)

Sweet! I will definitely be sporting that fine piece of flair!

Corn maze? This is a new one for me. Doesn't it just make you think of every horror movie you've ever seen?

Now it does. Thanks hon.

yes covering the social media aspect for blogs is very important. but terminology is important as well. I wouldn't call it a button, because a button is something I can click on or has a call to action. For example the "publish your comment" button on this page :)

Becky said...

Okay, maybe it's more of a "badge." Until I think of a call to action. . .

I think I have button envy.

Oh, it's nice! Congrats on your CS degree. ;)
