Adding the Blog Button

On WordPress, go to your dashboard, find appearance, select widgets. Find an IMAGE (not text) widget. Drag or select that widget and place it wherever you want it — in your sidebar or footer.

Then, leave all those boxes in the widget blank except for IMAGE URL. In that box, type the following exactly:

Save your widget. Take a look at your blog. See if that worked.

By the way:

If you want the blog button to link back to this blog when it is clicked, you can add this in the box that states: LINK URL. In that box, type this exactly:

    I’ve been nominated for a VBA how can I add a button to my blog?

    • #6 by lambskinny on January 3, 2015 - 13:33

      Look for the directions on the blog — I’m pretty sure there’s even a video on how to do it. Sorry, it’s been a long time since anyone asked me how to do it, so… I’m not inclined to rehash my answer. It’s there… I believe it’s a page? Your VBA Admin.

    I have a doubt : can I add the BLog Button (the square one) on my blog? I understood that the round one can not be added till one is nominated but I was wondering if the square one can be added. Thanks for your clairification.

    • #9 by lambskinny on September 20, 2014 - 18:38

      You can only add the VBA button to your blog if you have been awarded the VBA – that includes the square or the round one. – Thanks, Carley – your VBA admin.

    Hi I would like to nominate a new blogger – her address is and her blog is called The Punjabi Yummy Mummy. I found her blog very different as she struck a chord with the British Asians living in this country. I couldn’t stop laughing at her sense of humor – definitely worth an award.

    I’m not a big time blogger (yet) but I was wondering if there are restrictions on nominating someone, for example to have a certain amount of followers or a certain amount of time you’ve been blogging. If there aren’t I’d like to nominate Katie from Not only is she beautiful but she’s been on a very tough journey and her blog has at times brought me to tears but I feel as though she deserves at least a nomination. I hope I can just leave this comment here and hope she gets nominated! Thank you!

    • #19 by lambskinny on October 31, 2013 - 23:36

      If you are a VBA winner, then you can nominate her blog.

    Hi! I googled what the various awards on wordpress mean and I was linked to your site. Thank you for explaining it all. One gentleman I follow has numerous awards, including the Versatile Blogger, and he has been very inspirational throughout my own journey as a new blogger 🙂

    Just curious as to how you actually get nominated for an award. Thanks!!

    • #25 by lambskinny on June 19, 2013 - 10:04

      A VBA winner nominates your blog… sometimes it takes patience and perseverance.

    I know a few blogs that I think deserve this award, how can I nominate them? (Is there a formal procedure or no?)

    • #27 by lambskinny on June 15, 2013 - 11:23

      Just post them on your own blog and add a link here in a comment. It’s that simple. Good luck. Carley

  17. #28 by James Dickinson on June 13, 2013 - 01:57

    Hi there, I’m keen to submit my site for review. A blunt question perhaps but how do you get nominated? Just wait until a nominated person finds and nominates me?

      Yep; just wait. But I will check out your blog and let you know. Carley

    Help? How do I copy the image into my blog post? So not tech savvy.

    • #39 by lambskinny on March 2, 2013 - 16:02

      When you add image to the post, just use the URL for the blog button. I think that’ll work. Try it; let me know… Carley

      • #53 by lambskinny on June 19, 2012 - 15:31

        You’re so very welcome. I just happened to be “off” today, and realized this “adding the blog button” had become way too complicated, at least it seemed to me after reading some of the many and varied directions! Blessings, Carley
