Get yourself a ‘Gravatar’ & an ’email me’ button for your blog [Tutorial]

I’m sharing today! Below are some email me buttons.

Grab the code underneath and add it to a html box on your blog in the sidebar area. Change your email address (first line in bold). The second line in bold is where I have saved the image. If you prefer another image and have one on file, save your image to a photobucket account, get the direct link to the image and replace it in the code.
If you prefer your image to be positioned left or right in your sidebar, change BOTH bits in the code that say center (yes, American spelling!). Do NOT change any litte ” or < bits, or your code will not work.

If you have a certain colour or image you’d like, email me and I can make one just for you for a teensy little price 🙂

    Oh my goodness Katrina, THANK YOU! I have been thinking about a blog for ages now, and wondered over Christmas if this year is the year! You and A-M ( there are a handful more) are my treat at the end of the day with a cup of tea, once my little gems (aka terrors) are in the land of nod. x

    I just tried to add this and the code isn’t working – methinks because the post is old, maybe the code is old? Hmmmm… have to have a play around!
