Follower Buttons!

For those who are new, I like to make a couple of follower buttons for those who publicly follow my blog. I put the code for them on one of my less-used programming blogs.
Instructions for adding buttons to your blog are included below. To view past buttons, go here, here, and here! Enjoy!

The first thing you will see is a visual representation of the button. Second, you will see the code you need to post that button on your blog. Third, you will see the code for the "Take-a-button" text box you will place beneath the button.
  1. Copy the code for the latter two, and then you will click the "Layout Tab" on your blog.
  2. On "Add and Arrange Page Elements" click "Add a Gadget" and select an html/Javascript box.
  3. Paste the code in that box, and you are ready to go! Now your followers will be able to take a button to show that they are following your blog!
  4. If you don't like the photo or text I picked for you, send me what you want to nixiao {at} comcast {dot} net. If you just want a different color or shape or size, just say the word. Those are easy changes.
  5. Enjoy, and thanks for following!


  1. Awesome! Thanks for doing that! They look great!! :)

  2. Ok, so here's where I sound like a complete moron when it comes to computers ... I'm able to get the button on my page, but I can't work out how other people are able to get the button on their page from there. Is this like a simple problem and I'm just incredibly thick?? ha ha! Btw ... I followed the instructions to the letter! :)

  3. Okay, it was not your fault. The code broke when I posted it for some reason. I fixed that one. Let me know if there are any others you need fixed!
