    I’m trying to put a picture of myself in the right column of my blog Alwaysbejobhunting.com, with the various widgets but can’t find a way to do that, I’ve tried the photo one but it asks for a web address, is there no way to load a photo I have on the site into that side column? Also, I want to put a link there to my book on amazon and so far have only been able to put a small one, I want one that includes a picture of the book cover, is that possible?
    Blog url: http://alwaysbejobhunting.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is alwaysbejobhunting.com.

    Yes. You can capture the image of the bookcover, upload it and link it to the Amazon page, then and post it in your sidebar in either an image widget or a text widget.

    I suggest you create a draft post and do all your work in it. Once everything is proper then switch to the HTML editor and copy the code. Open a text widget and paste the code into it. Then check the diaply. If everytjing is fine you can delete the draft post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/text-widget-links/

    “everytime i copy an image url from the media library into the image wigdet it disappears when i hit save”.
    Shouldn’t be happening. Please paste an example of the URLs you’ve tried to use.
