What is an affiliate & How to create a button part 1

When I blog, I usually hope to help people with any of their beauty,fashion, or maybe even personal problems. I'm fourteen,but age is but a number, and I still have a long way to go with beauty and fashion because I am not an expert. My goal is not make a whole load of money or to become famous, but to get my message of beauty and fashion across a whole large number of an audience, help others, and inspire many people to come.

So in all seriousness, you probably wondering what is going on....

Well readers, today is the start of something new! I am starting blog affiliations. This just a fancy name for a banner swap(explained more in part 2). Banner swaps are a lot of fun, but I am having some trouble explaining so I made this cartoon:D


* A difference between a sponsor and affiliate is payment*

          Sponsor: Someone who pays to advertise on someone's site 

Affiliates: Someone who gets paid little money or nothing at all for views on their page  


Now how to put the banner on your site:                              



Then Vola! You have a new banner for your page.

So I hope you know the difference between a sponsor/afilliate and how to put a banner on your site.

Now, You need the html for your button:

First create your button

you can use paint, gip, or whatever

The normal size is...



You can do any size, just keep it reasonable


Now the important part:

Your going to need to upload your image to an image sharing site, I use Photobucket. It's free and super easy to create an account.


Now the html

"<center><div align="center"> <a href="http://townhousepalette.blogspot.com" target="_blank"><img alt="Manic Mother" src="http://i1071.photobucket.com/albums/u501/townhousepalette/banner678-1.jpg"/></a> <center></div> <div align="center"> <form><textarea rows="6" cols="20"><center><a href="http://townhousepalette.blogspot.com" target="_blank"><img alt="Manic Mother" src="http://i1071.photobucket.com/albums/u501/townhousepalette/banner678-1.jpg"/></a></center></textarea></form> </div>"

The Yellow highlighted area is where you put the direct link we copied from photobucket. Then the  Blue highlighted is where you put your site url.

Then after you apply you should have something like this...




That is just a picture, but your box will be the real thing, trust me. 

So that is how to create a button and what an affiliate is. I am going to continue this post in part 2, but this is all for now. If you have any questions to ask, don't be afraid to ask:) Till we meet again  fellow bloggers and readers.
