So today I tried to add some widgets to the site in order to link it to my Goodreads account. As someone who has never learned a thing about coding, I actually found it a very straight-forward thing to do (because the pros have made it easy, not because I'm particularly smart. Though my mom and dad tell me I am all the time, and I'm rather content with their bias). But then I was faced with an obstacle: unclickable buttons. And they were so cute that I wanted to add them to my site, so I emailed Goodreads, and in a flash (like always) they wrote me back, being awesome!
They told me I need a URL for each photo, and gave me a simple code that I would have to place the URL into. So naturally here I am, uploading a bunch of buttons I'm hoping I can sprinkle later into the site. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, the whole point of this blog post was uploading a bunch of buttons so I can assign URLs to them. If you're a computer pro and cannot believe you wasted however many seconds reading this, I am truly sorry :) But if you're like me, and would like to know how to add Goodreads buttons to your website and draw traffic to your books onto GR, then I think this will help! (Or so I hope. This is still in the experimental phase)
Here are the buttons:
Hmm... Kinda looks like an ice-cream cone... Aren't they sexy!? They're sexy. Admit it. Except maybe the bottom two. I don't think they've even hit puberty yet. Awww bebe buttons!
I'm sorry. It's past 3 am and I'm a bit off my rocker. And manic. It's weird, but I get energetic when I'm exhausted.
Oh my god... I just realized all I have to do is link these images to my Goodreads page. Oh my GOD! I should NOT do things when I'm too tired to think smarter! UGH! MY PARENTS LIED TO ME!
