If Buttons Were Crack...

As you may or may not have noticed, there are an innumerable amount of new "buttons" on the blog. I'd seen these little square (50X50) buttons on other blogs over the year, and was always jealous, but never took the time to find out exactly what they were. Well, I can tell you what they are: My latest addiction, that's what! They're called "Fanlisting" buttons/"codes" and I just love 'em! If you're wondering what a 'fanlisting' is exactly, here's a definition, courtesy of one of the bajillion sites:

A fanlisting is a place for all fans of a particular show, movie, actor/actress, singer, etc., to come together and build the biggest listing of people from all around the world who are fans of that subject.

The really cool part is that there are TONS of categories of things that you love! Here's the SHORT list:

• Actors
• Actresses
• Albums
• Animals
• Animation
• Arts
• Authors/Writers
• Books
• Comics
• Food/Drinks
• Games
• Magazines/Newspapers
• Movies
• Music
• Musicians: Bands/Groups
• Musicians: Female
• Musicians: Male
• Politics
• Songs: Various
• Toys/Collectibles
• TV Shows


And that's just some of them! Not to mention the subcategories in each category! It's insane!

I must admit I was a little dismayed to see that some people/movies/things that I enjoy, do NOT have a fanlisting. Oh well, I'll just be creating my own buttons for those things at a later date and posting them here, just in case anyone else also shares a love of them.

Anyway, all you have to do is download the button/"code" of your choice. Upload it to your own image hosting site. Place it on your blog, linking it to the original source and sign up as a "fan" of said listing! To some, this may sound like a lot of work, and I guess it can be if you're a fan of a lot of things (as I am), but it' can be a lot of fun!

To begin cruising the "official" fanlisting categories (they take this stuff really seriously), go to: TheFanlistings.org, but don't say I didn't warn ya!

Well, my addiction has slowed down a little. Now I'm addicted to making ones for things that don't have fanlistings! :)

You warned us, but did I listen? Noooooo. Damn you. You owe me 4 hours. heh

If you're making buttons, could you do a 50x50 for The Man From UNCLE for me? Or just David McCallum? I wouldn't mind one for NCIS, either. Three hunks on that show: Mark Harmon, McCallum, and Michael Weatherly.

Seriously. I've been wondering where those nifty buttons were coming from, so thanks for the link.
