My Favourite Photography Apps

Photography has changed so much over the last 20 years or so, it used to be all about film cameras and waiting for ages to get the film developed. Next came the Polaroid and I remember when I received a Polaroid camera one Christmas and that blew my mind. You got the photo straightaway and it was amazing. 

Years later it was the turn of digital cameras with memory cards which we transferred to computers and shared them with friends and printed the odd few out. This turned into the World of mobile and phones that can capture beautiful photos and allow us to edit photos on the go and share them instantly with the World.

How to Make a Blog Button

<div align="center"><a href="http://OneDad3Girls.com" title="OneDad3Girls" target="_blank"><img src="http://onedad3girls.com/admin/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/moon.jpg" alt="OneDad3Girls" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Now there are a few clever ways to create one however the easiest way is by using the "Grab My Button" code generator.


The three main things you need are the Blog Title, Blog URL and the URL of the image. So firstly you'll need to upload the image you want to use to somewhere like the Wordpress Media Centre or Flickr and make sure the image you upload is the actual size you want the button and then grab the image URL.

Once you've added the details you can then preview what the badge will look like and then customise it to your own taste and then simply grab the code and paste it into your post or sidebar and this will also allow others to grab it too.

BINGO a blog button created very easily.
