Six weeks ago we released a fun little feature called Blurb Badges. In a nutshell, Badges are simple snippets of HTML that authors can copy and paste into their own site, blog, or even an email footer to promote and link to their Blurb book or bookstore.
The idea has definitely taken off – Blurbarians are proudly posting their Blurb badges all over the place. In fact, the response has been so great that we decided to give our Badge widget a facelift, giving authors even more options.
The premise is the same: Simply pick the book you want to promote, and then customize the badge to your heart’s content. Take your pick of badge dimensions, a handful of border styles, and a palette of Blurb-friendly colors. Or, if you want to promote your entire bookstore, simply grab one of our classic bookstore buttons. The choice is yours.
Keep in mind, the book is never closed when it comes to our badge widgets. Are there other styles, formats, or options you’d like to see in the future? Leave us a note in the comments section below to keep us in the loop.
