As I mentioned in yesterday’s 7 Quick Takes, I’m discontinuing 7 Quick Takes and introducing (drum roll, please…) Seven Snippets Linkup! I may be the only person participating, but no matter – the seven random Friday thoughts feature will live on! Many thanks to Conversion Diary for her inspiration.

If you WOULD like to participate, come back on Friday morning – or anytime during the week – for the linky (I’ll put it up early). I’ve also provided some tools below for you to use that I hope will make it easier for you to create your own Seven Snippets posts.

Option #1: Use a Post Template

I’ve created an HTML template that includes both the Seven Snippets button image and numbered dividers for each section. To use the template, follow these instructions:

  1. Click on this link.
  2. Highlight everything and copy it.
  3. Paste it into the HTML editor on your blogging platform.
  4. Insert your own text in the template where it says to substitute.

If you’d like to download the text file to your computer for future reference,  you can do so (it’s a .txt file).

Option #2: Grab the Button and Create Your Own Post

Below is the code for the image ONLY. Just choose the size you want (either 180×180 or 250×25), highlight the text inside the box, and paste into your post. Note: If you use the template in option #1, you won’t need to grab the button code below, because the text template already includes the 250×250 button (the size I am using).

For a button that’s 250×250 pixels (shown above), copy and paste the following code:

<p style=”text-align: center;”><a href=”http://www.bringingthesunshine.com/tag/seven-snippets”><img title=”SevenSnippetsButton” src=”http://www.bringingthesunshine.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/SevenSnippetsButton.March2012.png” alt=”” width=”250″ height=”250″ /></a></p>

For a button that’s 180×180 pixels (shown above), copy and paste the following code:

<p style=”text-align: center;”><a href=”http://www.bringingthesunshine.com/tag/seven-snippets”><img title=”SevenSnippetsButton” src=”http://www.bringingthesunshine.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/SevenSnippetsButton.March2012.png” alt=”” width=”180″ height=”180″ /></a></p>

I’m looking forward to reading YOUR Snippets each week!
