Help....please??

Ok so I need to make a button for this blog...I love what I have but I think from a business perspective I should have the ACTUAL name of my blog on there.  (Please do not infer from that sentence that I am making vast amounts of $$ on this blog...cuz I am not...but maybe one day right?? Gotta be prepared for any situation!)

I have read about 200 tutorials on how to make one, got quotes from different sites to have a professional make one, and tried messing it with it on my own.
To no avail.
Everything I have tried looks WAAY wrong, corny, and lame or just not my style.  I like the buttons other bloggers have with the little avatar faces but that's just not me.  I am more understated and I have a big face...lol...so in all fairness and keepin it real if I were to do an avatar of my face it would be a big light brown circle with 2 eyes...and no room for any other features...those lil buttons are small..lol. 

If any other mom bloggers out there has a great resource or tutorial (paid or otherwise....I would like to go the free route but I understand people gotta make dollah bills so if you know someone who is a button maker extraordinaire then pls msg me-email is under the PR friendly tab or leave a site reference in the comments!!)

Thanks in advance for all your help!! Have a great weekend!!

Do you have anything specific you are going for?
I love your button and think that it intrigues people to visit.
What image would you like to portray?



You could host a contest for your subscribers to make you a button and offer a small gift card, amazon code, or $5 paypal?

If you give a an idea of what you are looking for I could make a few for you. I am no graphic artist but I am a serious digital scrapbooker and have made several buttons with the software I use for that. Plus my serives are free. Email me at christen_allen@att.net

Ditto to Christen. I made my blog button, and I'd be happy to whip up one for you too. :)

I like the one you have! But I can understand wanting your name on your button. I don't have my blog name on my button, but it still works for me. Good luck! Hope you find what you are looking for.
