What Blog Button is for?

I just made a blog button! 

So? 

I kinda laughed at myself because I had no definite answer for this question except it is cute. So, This question got me thinking as to what blog buttons are for? I tried googling for it but I couldn't seem to find the answer to my question. I am not really good in giving explanations. But, oh well, here it goes!
But please feel free to comment your ideas of it's uses.

So basically, blog button is a visual representation of your blog. Kinda more like a brand or logo as they say.


Many people are visual (I know I am). I have to admit, pictures catches my attention more effectively than words. Blog button is a quick way to channel the idea of your blog to visitors and readers without having them to read. Like in this case, I designed mine with a silhouette picture of me kissing the Eiffel Tower so the people would  know I love Paris or anything French, hence my blog tittle. You can also make blog buttons for giveaways, tutorials (like a poster) or it can be in a form of award like this! This button is made by Cindy Adkins of Whimsical Musings. I am a proud graduate of her blogging seminars. And she also make blog buttons and headers! She is a great artist and a friend!!
The best part is when other bloggers display your button on to their blog, their followers could easily notice by followers of your followers. It will also serve as their shortcut link back to your page.

And speaking of blog buttons, I just want to share what is going on at one of my friend's blog Marilyn of The ArtsyGirlConnection. She is having a sweet Sweet 14day Valentine Hop called...
