Last year our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, started a new media campaign. Our area was one of three where it was first tested. We received these great little pass along cards, heard new radio ads, saw new billboards and new TV commercials all directing people to Mormon.org for more information. Late last year the campaign went global, or at least throughout North America. You can read more about the church’s media campaign here.
The same article linked to above has what I call internet pass-along cards that you can download. I chose a few, downloaded them, then uploaded them to my flickr account. Get the url for the small size.
I then went to my blogger dashboard clicked on Layout, then on Page Elements. I clicked on “Add a Page Element” in my sidebar and choose the HTML/Java Script option.
Here is the code that you will enter substituting the url for your photo where the blue is:
<a href=”http://www.mormon.org/mormonorg/eng/” target=”_blank”><img id=”contact” src=”url for your photo here” border=”0″ /></a>
To see if you did it right click on Rich Text and you should be able to see your photo. Click “Save Changes”.
You can use this code for any picture you have and link it to any site you want simply by changing the following: red is the url for the website you want to link to, blue is the url of your photo. Also as a side note see where it says target=”_blank” after the red? That code tells your computer to open the link in a new window.
****UPDATE 6/1/08: An easier way to do this with blogger is to choose the “add a photo ” option instead of the html/java script option. When you upload your photo you have the option of linking it to URL.
The add photo page looks like this:
Hope that helps Meg!
