For those that like these things, I have created a little button for the The Kitchen.

Bile, spite and vitriol at The Devil's Kitchen

To get this exciting little button (updated from the first revision because I just can't leave well alone) for your blog—as some are beginning to do—simply copy and paste the following code into your template.
<a href="http://devilskitchen.blogspot.com"><img src="http://www.ds-2.co.uk/dk_blog/dk_button.gif" title="Bile, spite and vitriol at The Devil's Kitchen" alt="Bile, spite and vitriol at The Devil's Kitchen" style="width:80px;height:15px;border:0px;margin:0px;"></a>

Just following the trend an' all although, actually, it was mostly because I was bored.

Very natty button. I like it.

I thought of something similar when stumbling across a button-making program somewhere online but, leaving aside my utter technical uselessness, two other things occurred to me:

(a) How many people would actually use such a button alongside, or instead of, a normal sidebar link to your blog?

(b) No one can begrudge a blogger good branding (quite the opposite), but I kind of regard anyone who links to my blog as doing me a favour. Does creating a special button maybe invite the charge of self-importance? "Don't put me in your blogroll with all the plebs, put me in the special section with Guido?"

I'd worry that the response out there would be a big yawn (in my case it certainly would be). But is that just me?

Of course you are not as other men, DK, but still...

"...style="width:80;..."

80px - unit is required. Don't want to leave the browser guessing ('80 what? Bananas? Peugeot 206s? Pollyannas?).

OK, so I'm a standards pedant. There are worse things...

I should have added that it's a pretty button. Sorry.

Pete,

Yes, of course: apologies, my mind wasn't on the job. I shall correct that immediately...
