Ever wonder how buttons for blogs or memes are made? Wonder no longer! Beth Fish Reads gives you a tutorial.

There’s a game going on where situations are presented (such as the title of a book showing up in the book itself) and people offer names for those things, the names are voted on, and then we’ve got a term we can use!
