My first blog was basically a diary for myself to keep track of my life. It was very simple, had almost no widgets at all and I made no attempt to get it noticed in blog land. This blog by comparison is a collection of many of the things I have learned about during my life journey's and I want to share it with a wide audience.
I want to thank all the wonderful people who took the time to learn how to do all the many tasks involved in producing a quality blog and for posting tutorials for others to learn from. Since I started this blog, many of my friends have stated an interest in writing a blog of their own. What follows here is links to many other bloggers and their tutorials and articles on how to create your own blog. They can explain it better than me...
( I will be updated the links periodically as I come across more information, this should keep you busy for now)

There are two ways to add someone's button within your post. I'll assume you mean the html version of a button you see with a scroll bar code under it
1. Cut and paste the scroll bar code
2. Go to your post and while in compose mode, switch to html
3. paste the html code into your post at the bottom (doing it mid way can cause major mayhem if you paste it in the wrong place)
4. Switch back to compose mode, click on the button and drag to desired area within post.
