Adding a picture to your side bar...........

before you do all the below............find the picture you want (usually on someone elses blog) a swap logo etc ..............right click on the picture and save it to your desktop (easy to find and you can delete it later once added to your blog)
sign in --> from the dashboard--> layout --> page elements --> on the left click on add a gadget (edited used to say add a page element)
Now there are heaps of different things to add here...........we want to add a picture ...........(like a logo for a swap etc)
edit this has now changes to a list with different logos but same idea........
you can add a "title" and "caption" but I don't..........
"link" - I put the website in here where you want to picture to link to but you don't need to put something in here either..............
edit: like your swap organisers blog address, another blog etc
find the image on your computer (remember you saved it to you desktop)
make sure "shrink to fit" is ticked and "save" your setting as you exit................
let me know how you go..............
Take care til next time..................Chookyblue

  10. This is a great tutorial, but I can't access 'Add a Page Element' to my Blogspot blog. I've searched to try to find it but no luck. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks, Peg
