I'm posting my summary of the tutorial as well. I was having trouble with the HTML codes trying to execute so I had to add asterisks to keep it from trying to run. Just omit them when copying the code.
Basically, I created my button using Photoshop. I made the canvas 150 by 150 pixels. The tutorial suggests this size because many sidebars aren't bigger than 200 pixels. I used several of the design tips I learned from Kevin & Amanda when I made my background and header (see that post HERE).
I then uploaded the picture to my photobucket account. I highly recommend getting one of these! It's great! Really handy for uploading my stuff!

Save and drag the gadget to wherever you want it (mine is below my "About Me"). Now, view your blog to make sure everything worked right. If it did, continue :)
<**textarea rows="4" cols="20"> Entire Code From Above <**/textarea>
Save and drag it to right below the button HTML.
There you go! You have your own blog button. Now you can share your blog on other people's blogs! How great is that? Hope this helps others. Let me know if anyone designs a blog button of their own so everyone can check it out!
Have a great Thursday :)
