Works For Me Wednesdays - How Do I Add a Button?

Does anyone know how to put a button on your site with the code below it?  I have tried so many times to follow the "directions" found on a number of different sites but not one seems to work. Grrrr..  Perhaps someone knows a very SIMPLE set of directions to add a button.

Edit: lol  I think I must of made this confusing.  I know how to add a button to the sidebar.. what I am wanting.. is .. I have created a button for my own site..that I want to share..   And I have noticed that a lot of blogs have their button with the copy code right beneath it.. so that other's can "grab their button" and put it on their site.  So I know there is a specific way to do this..and every time I try..either the picture shows up ..and the code doesn't or the code shows up and the picture doesn't lol  Sorry to make this confusing!!!

I'm a bit confused...do you want to add a button? Or the code? Or both...if so why? You don't usually have the code showing.

You have buttons now, so I assume you know how to do that.

Ok, so you have the code for your button.

Now put that code into the add html gadget. Then right under it type:

< textarea>COPY YOUR CODE HERE< /textarea>

So, you will see the code for your button and then under it the same code with < textarea> before and < /textarea> after it.

It won't let me post it correctly, so take out the space between the < and t.

If that doesn't make sense or doesn't work, email me.

WooHoo! It looks great!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
