I'm it!

I have been tagged by Stephanie from A Pocket Full Of Buttons. I don't even remember how I stumbled upon her blog but since I found it I have been enjoying her posts and checking out her beautiful kid clothing creations. She has her own Etsy shop. And she has a giveaway on right now at her blog!

This is my first blogging game. That means I have no idea how to add the Tag Button. I tried uploading it but no success. You can see what it looks like at Stephanie's blog here. Any advice?

Here are the rules:

1) Mention the person who tagged you and be sure to link to them
2) Post your list of 8's
3) Tag 8 bloggers and don't forget to tell them!

Here are my answers:

  1. Here's how to add the image (well one way anyhow):
    left click on the image and select "Copy image location". That puts the web address of the picture in your clipboard. Then on your blog post edit screen click the little picture icon and where it says "add an image from the web", paste into the URL field. That simple! :)
    So I'm it now, eh?! Eeks! I'll have to work on that one!

  2. Ooooh! Tags! How fun! I was never any good at running and typically I'm slow at seeing this too, but shall get on with it forthwith once the relentless terrorist aka child, is asleep.

  3. Thanks for the tag - I'll play next week for sure! :)
