So I *think* I've finally (weeks and maybe even months later!) solved my blog button issue, thanks to Our Life in a Click and this tutorial she recommended :) THANK YOU!
On a side note, if I haven't fixed it and I just think I did, definitely let me know :)
Update: And also a HUGE thank you to Emily for being the mastermind behind fixing my button. I clearly have a mental block when it comes to blog button HTML :)
**And as always, a huge thank you to Toni over at Hemp & High Heels for designing my button! You rock, girl!
