I love the challenge of learning something new don't you? I don't think the complications or the simplicities of the task matter to me as much as being able to achieve the intended out come. Some times I am a little slow on the info uptake as I have said before, but once I have hit my head against the proverbial brick wall enough that those lost tidbits get shook back in place and I begin to "get it" I either feel really proud of my self or really stupid I didn't get it before that. Either way doesn't affect my need for self challenge. Keeps my mind, sprit and sole young and bright and alert:P
so for the last 2 days I have been readying an researching how to make a blog button ..hopefully with code for others to grab.. well see what we get...
First I used my favorite photo editing program to edit and add elements to a photo of one of my recent apron creations and saved it on my hard drive.
Next I am posting about it here so that I can obtain a URL for the photo . .. (looking at the photo now I wonder if I shouldn't go back and play with the fonts on the photo to make them a bit larger ...hmm.. well this is the learning phase I can go back and correct my photo when I see what I have before I tell any one to grab it and if this is going to work.
ok so I need two urls the one I want this photo to link to and the one where this photo is located.... guess I can't get one of them till I publish this photo
so bare with me I will up date this if it works or at least with my efforts
Fingers crossed ........ 1st try OK so that is REALLY big.. i need to re size that photo ... brb
second try Ok that's a little smaller but no html code for others to greab.. hummm ok off to do more research ..
third try OK i think the size might be ok.. now where is the code.. geeerrrrrr. Be back in a bit to fix this i hope
YESSS!!! YESS!!! YESSSSS!!! HAppy Dance! Happy Dance ! Happy Dance! ( singing to the tune of na-na-na-na-na) I have a blog Button with HTML code you can grab now if you want it. I can Share Blog buttons..
For those who figured this out before me this may not seam like such a big deal.. But to me it is because while my hubby is a computer tech ( makes his living at it) I am computer stupid .. so this is a really big deal for me .. I am OH SO HAPPY.. I can't wait to show him what I just did..
( Ok guess I need to cut the pain meds back Just a bit..LOL )
Now i just have to figure out exactly how i did it so i can do it again..:P
I am Mother,Grandmother, Wife, Daughter,Sister,Aunt, Friend.
I am constant and ever changing.
I love and am loved.
I am ME! for what ever and whom ever that is..
I am discovering and rediscovering myself and life .( I am a bad speller and I stink at grammar. Shame on me at my age I know , but I am working on it.) My Family was as diverse in it's traditions as it was in its heritage.My Mother, Dutch-Italian-Irish from the north , My Father, Southern-Scotch -Irish-English. My sister and I were adopted so into that mix you add, Irish - Native American and some German and ... Wham! you have a traditional version of the American melting pot filled with a variety of ingredients, which all blended together to teach us to honor the uniqueness in the ones we love and the strangers who are friends we simply haven't met yet. Welcome new friends. If you leave a comment and i don't respond, it's not that i am rude. I am a bit shy, or i may not know what to say, and sometime a bit bubble headed. But I read them all and love to hear from you All.
