I have my own badge with code to share and I'm so happy. Really. It may sound shallow, but for HTML-challenged like me, it is an accomplishment. It took me the whole weekend to figure it out in Photoshop and to make the code right so that it will appear in my site. Thanks to Google, and of course to Gene for creating a post about it. I am contented (for now) on how my badge looks and now I can say, "I've got a badge! I've got a badge!"
