Help a sister out here, will ya?

OK, Friday confession...I'm not as technology savvy as you'd think.

No, seriously.

(But I'm getting much better at handling a gun!)

Granted, I designed my blog layout all by myself.  But it was a lot of cut and paste, I didn't reinvent the wheel or anything.  

So I need some help.

Many of my fellow bloggers have cute little badges or buttons with their blog names and crap on them, and other bloggers can "grab one" and add it to their pages.

I don't have one.


I want one.

:::stomps foot::::

Can somebody help me out? Which one of you creative people out there will make one for me? the back! I see you. I know you have one. Where'd you get it?

Listen, if I have to promise sexual favors, so be it. I want a damn badge of my own, and I'll do almost anything whatever it takes to get one.

Just deliver the goods and then we'll negotiate payment.

Happy Friday! What's your plan for the weekend?

i know what your talking about but i have NO idea how to get or make one...let me know when you find out who does....i haven't been bloggin in awhile as you can tell, but I am trying to get back on track as soon as I get to feelign better....Sexual favors eh? Well it has been awhile huh, so it might work in your favor if you do this right!

Here is a blogger who makes them. She charges $10.

Sammy Holiday said...

Lol! Your post is so funny and i find it cute too. If only i know how to do it, then without a doubt i'll be your slave. But so sorry sister, mine is a copy paste too hehe!

The offer of sexual favors has Bagman beating on my head to make you a badge. But despite the fact I think I know a little about blogspot, I don't really know what a badge is. Wham wham - Bagman wants sexual favors. But I have to say that your picture on your blog looks really professional.

Ok, while I realize I have one, I do not know how to do it. Someone made mine for me (but holy crap she did it for free! $10?!?!?!). I do know it had something to do with her using my blog header as a photobucket image, but other than that...I'm done.

Weekend plans? Don't know but there will be vodka involved.

Julia, wish I could help you. I know what you are asking about, most of those are created by someone that you have to pay. I just barely know the basic way of getting in and out of the computer. All the fancy blog work is over my head. Have you heard from Danica? I would like to know how she is doing.

Jo said...

I didn't pay for mine at all. A kind bloggy friend happily made mine for me.

I made a public plea and someone took pity on me -- there are a lot of clever bloggers out there and someone will come through and offer to make you one just because. :)

I just don't know how to do it personally and don't want to offer up the services of someone else who may have just done it as a favor.

However, have no fear, doll -- there are many on-line tutelages on how to do this and you're much more clever at this stuff than I am. My husband had to help me with my page, so, there you go. ;)

Good luck! If you get one I'm so adding it on my blog -- Oh, but only if you add mine. See what I did there? What a nasty little minx I am! ;)

Peace and serenitty,

I mis-spelled 'serenity'. Didn't want you to think me a dolt. :D

Go to Tiffany's blog and scroll down on the right til you see her eyeball falling out of her head.

Is THAT what you want? I made that one. Animation is very difficult, so I"m thinking you want a photo of yourself? Legs at 3 and 9. No?

Ideas please.

I have no clue...please follow up when you get some good info!
Happy Friday!

Hey there! I'm the mean blogger who charges to make buttons...they do take some time, usually about an hour to two hours depending on the design and after making several for free I decided to start charging for my time.

You can see my portfolio of button designs at

I charge $7.00 for the standard square button with code and $9.00 for a custom shaped button.

I'll email you with more info. Thanks for checking with me!

Dr. Penny said...

Holy crap, it's bloggy biz!!! Who knew you could make money making square buttons? Two things: first, put the pic with your shorter hair back in the puzzle; and second, my plan is to be poolside all weekend. And no, I am not sorry. Especially since I got into a pair of pants I haven't been able to wear for a year and a half. I hope my bathing suit falls off!!!!

LeeAnn said...

Believe it or not I actually think I know what it is and how to do it. Surprise, huh? Since you had to help me step-by-step to set up my blog. But I got brave one day recently and did a little experiment. No guarantees, but I'd be happy to try. No favors, sexual or otherwise required. ;)

Denise Burks said...

oo ooh. I want one of those buttons, too! Will you post the answer?

Oz Girl said...

Well, it sounds like some of your readers came through for you... so I'm looking forward to seeing your new button soon. :)

If you still need help, I have the code from my button which I could send you - all you would have to do is replace the art with your own (obviously) and the links in the code so it goes to your blog. I mean, your art could be anything you want it to be, unless you need someone to design something totally new for you.

Good luck, and feel free to give me a holler if you need anymore help! :)

Julie… I must confess, I stole this pic from your post. It had great meaning to me as you can see here:

Although I choose to remain anonymous to most, the link above is my real blog, and I am the woman who sent you the fodder for this post:

If I had the software to make you a badge, I would.

You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a money that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.
