First you need your picture.
If you don’t have one, you can use windows snipping tool or screen capture and take one from the web, it’s a good idea to check its ok to do this with the site owner your taking it from, but if your linking to that site then it looks much nicer than a plain old hyper link.
If you have Photoshop or any photo editing software then pull you pic into that and re-size it to fit the space you need to put it into, usually the side bar in WordPress as you need to copy and paste html code into a widget.
Once you’ve re sized it save it as the nameyouwant .png and load it into your WordPress media library, now click here for the HTML code you need, copy and paste it into notepad, you only need one of the HTML codes. In notepad change the target link in the code to the link you want to use, change the date to the year and month you’re doing this and change the name to the name of the pic you selected. Copy the code from notepad into a text widget, found in your wordpress dashboard under apperances/widgets, make sure you placed the widget in your side bar before you paste the code, save and view your site.
