Saving Blog Awards

I've been asked by a couple of people how to save awards to their blogs when they receive them from fellow bloggers. I thought it would be easier to do a quick post about it. Now, please bear in mind that I am only a newbie at this blogging malarkey so this might not be the quickest/right way to do it, but it's worked for me!!
  1. Right click the award and click 'save image as'
  2. Save the document to somewhere you can easily find it again (I save it to my desktop)
  3. Upload the image as you would in your blogging software. I use Blogger so I simply add it as a picture into my post
  4. If you also want to save it into your sidebar you can do this in Blogger by adding a picture. Go to 'Layout', 'Page Elements'. Scroll down the page and you will see a header marked 'Add a Gadget'. Click this button and it will open up a new window entitled 'Basics'. On this page you will see the header 'Picture' (subheader - 'add a picture from your computer or from somewhere else on the web'). Click on the plus sign under this header and another box will open up where you can upload your picture by browsing for the location of your file.
I hope this helps. If you try it let me know if it works for you :o)
