Technology Tutorial- Adding an Email Me Button to your Blog

Free Email Buttons!

Disclosure: All of the above buttons were illustrated and created by me FREE for you to use! Please do not sell or re-distribute without my consent. As always, you can refer back to this post at www.classifiedmom.com Thank you & enjoy!

Want a PR Firm, a potential advertiser, or a fellow reader to be able to get a hold of you without exposing your email box to spam? Creating an email button can do just the thing!

What to do:
1. Select an email button  from above (or another site, designer or your own creation) and save it to an online photo hosting site such as Photobucket or Image Shack
2. In Blogger, go to "Design" and click "Add a Gadget".
Add caption
 3. Select the "Add HTML/JavaScript" from the menu.
4. DO NOT add a title, just the following code:
<div align="center"> <a href="mailto:Youremailaddress@example.com">
<img alt="Classified: Mom" src="http://your_photo_hosting_here.com/image_name.png"/></a></div> 

5. Click Save.
6. View your blog and click to see if it works! You may have a program like "Outlook Express" open up if that is your default email client. 

Please note: You need to change the highlighted text to your email address and photo hosting URL. You can also use this in Websites and other Blog services using the exact same code!

Let me know if you have any questions! You can always email me ;-)
