You can either copy these to your own site or link directly to the files here (preferred).
Direct linking allows for updates to the graphics without you changing anything in your code.

If none of these sizes are suitable for your website or blog, drop me a PM and I'll try to whip something up for you.

All images should point to the site's basic URL:
http://MellowBakers.com

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

I must admit I've not been able to add the logo to my sidebar. I'm on WP and I know sometimes it can be wiggy. Still working on it.

Hi Paul, 
I've just made a baby blog on wordpress and would appreciate some advice on how to add this button thingy to it  :D I've not blogged before so am on a bit of a steep learning curve.  Best wishes Zeb

Hi Zeb,
I'm not Paul, but I think I can  help you with this question. Once you are logged in, go to "My Dashboard". Scroll down till you find the box "Appearance" on the left side. Click on "Widgets". You can see all available widgets then. Via drag and drop move the "Image" widget into your "Sidebar". Once it's in the sidebar click on the arrow in the top right of the widget. For Widget Title you can choose whatever you like, p.e. "The Mellow Bakers". Then you have to type in the image URL which you just copy and paste from Paul's post (the link with the .jpg in the end). You can leave "Image Title" empty, but you can write "The Mellow Bakers" or something like that again. The image title is what visitors of your blog will see when a mouse pointer is hovered over the image. Then you have to type the link URL which is http://mellowbakers.com. When people click on the badge, they will be redirected to the Mellow Bakers' site. Everything else can be left empty. Then you click on "Save" (width and height are automatically chosen) and you're all set. You can move the widget within your sidebar via drag and drop, too. So, this is what your widget would look like if you chose to take the small 160x57 badge (see attached picture). Hope this helped you!

Oh that was kind!  I am not sure if I have an image widget, the theme I used is pretty basic. I was wondering if I could put the image in the post.  have to dash out now, but I will be back later and get to work on my widgets. New vocabulary, steep learning curve. I have taken a copy of your post and will read it properly later.  Have a good day, Zeb  :D

done it, I think,  http://zebbakes.wordpress.com/  tell me if it works ok - you are a star!  :clap:
