Desperately Seeking a Blog Button ;)

Ok, so I cruise around and check out everyone's blog and see all of these cute little 'buttons' with a 'grab my button' below it. Now I ask, why do I want to grab someone else's button? Not sure, but I sure know I want to create one of my own!
So I have made a couple of choices and want to see if any bloggers out there will weigh in on which (if any) they like better.


Choice #1 is a zebra background with a simple 'Wild About School' in steamin' hot pink with a couple of cute little hearts thrown in for good measure! Ok, it is steamin' when it is bigger :p




Choice #2 is a cute little picture of some of the jungle animals I love, love, love...




For me, there are pros and cons with each design. So... bloggers I ask you, Choice #1 or Choice #2 or is it D. None of the above???

  1. I like the 2nd button the most. The first one is hard to read your blog name.

    1. Thanks Mary, I think I agree with you... when I was making it I was zoomed in and it was much brighter :)

  3. I like the second one, just catches my eye quicker. What program did you use to make them?

    1. Hi Dawn, thanks... I used an online photo editor called PicMonkey... it is a great little site but you can get lost for hours playing. Now I will have to figure out how to make it into a 'Grab It' button correctly!

    2. Thanks for the info, Rita. I see what you mean about PicMonkey and I spent only about 2 minutes there. This is the site I used to help me figure out how to place the button on my blog: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Blog-Button-for-Blogger.Com Hope it helps!

    3. Thanks Dawn, I took a look at it and this is basically what I was doing. I think my problem lies with the fact that I don't know what I am doing! No, seriously though... I see the picture I want to use in my Google+ photos, but no matter how I try to link to it I get a blue box with a question make in it when I preview it. So therefore, I am reluctant to post what is not working...ugh!!! Oh wel. I will try again tomorrow!!! Perhaps then the lights will flicker a bit!!! Thanks again.

    4. Dawn, you are a genius... Thank you, thank you, thank you... OMG I was ready to pull my hair out... now I just have to figure out the code to make it smaller. My image is 125x125 that I am linking to but it sure seems much bigger when I vie it on my side bar... I am so going to bed on that note ;)

    1. Thanks Mrs. Goodwin... I am loving my jungle theme for this year! My hubby thinks I may have lost my mind but he just shakes his head and chuckles :) I love that guy!!! So glad you stopped by and I agree, #2 is the one.
      Thanks.
