Okay so my bestie - also known as the wise and glorious webmistress Nicole - found me this site with some great tutorials on how to create your site badge and how to create the scroll box underneath it with the embed codes for people to copy.
And because I give credit where credit is due - Thanks Jess over on A Few of my Favorite Things for the tutorials!!! You rock!
P.S. You think this counts as my blogging advice for the blog hop? :D
