How do I add my Facebook badge to my Blogger page?

When I created my blog on Blogger, I felt like it was a bit dry at first. So I looked into what to add in the column on the side... Since I like to make friends on Facebook, I thought that adding my badge would be a good idea.

WordPress at Made to Order Software!

Welcome on Alexis’ Blog at Made to Order Software Corporation.

This is my first blog! I’m glad I got WordPress to work with the m2osw style sheet. It is quite different from the default blogging board setup! Also I needed to make it work for several people on the same website without duplicating the code each time.
