Blog help

After going to the Sewing Summit I have been inspired to keep blogging.  I am always discouraged because it is possible that no one is reading the blog.  So why am I writing?  Well for me of course.  However it might be true there are some followers out there.  So I decided I should look further into making my blog a little snazzier.  Since I am not sure how many people really care, I know I should not spend money trying to make it better.  Since I am kind of a geek, I like knowing more about technolgy, I decided to ask one of my favorite bloggers for a little help.  Rachel from Stitched in Color let me know to use the information on Jenelle's Blog Echinops and Aster to get a bit more savy on my Blogging.

Her tips are great and the first is how to read HTML.  Wow, I did not even know what it standed for, so I am already ahead of the game!  The second is what I really wanted to know.  How do I put cute little social media buttons on my blog?  First step is to download all of the cute little pictures and upload them onto the internet.  I decided to post them her.  I got the buttons from Carrie at Carrie Loves.

Now I just need to follow the rest of the directions to get the buttons to actually work.  I hope this information helps you make your blog a cute place to visit.

UPDATE:  I did it!!!  Carrie's blog is so helpful!


  1. I'm reading your blog! :) Just a little reader feedback, the new font is a bit difficult to read. But I love the new buttons. Keep at it. It takes a while to learn HTML.

    1. I changed the font again hopefully that is better?

  2. I'm reading it and it is cute ! I think I'll go take a look at the sites you provided. Thanks
