One of the quickest ways to posh up your blog is most certainly by adding a blog signature.
Not only does it give it certain flair but I like the fact that it gives a visible stamp of your authority over your blog content.
And again, like having a blog button, to me it just screams “I Am A Serious Blogger”.
So today I decided this is the tit bit I will share with you.
NOTE! This CSS can be used with Wordpress too but what i have described here in installation (last step) applies to blogger.
There are two ways of installing a signature to your blog, one is to add a signature that will install itself even on your old posts.
The other is a signature that will update only from your next post. Meaning all your old ones remain lacking.
This week I will share the first because this is my favorite one.
I wanted to make sure that even my very first post on this blog, dating back to July of 2011 would have a signature.
And thanks to CSS codes, we can do this within seconds of pressing save.
this is what we are starting out with and as you can see, there is no signature:
Right. What to do.First off get yourself a design of your signature.
You can design your signature from scratch using any number of design software to create a png. image and edit it with corel draw, picmoney, photoshop etc. to make it pretty.
I admit i did go an extra mile in photobucket and made a border and included the blogging ninja text but ignore that. Look at the name with hearts.
Now I am all for authenticity but for me time is of the essence so, short cuts please. to get my name in the font with hearts this is what i did.
I made a very quick signature by going to: MY LIVE SIGNATURE.
This awesome site has a wide variety of fonts, colors and sizes for you to quickly pick from in all of two minutes and your signature is done.
All you need to do is:
Enter a name, initials or a nickname for creating the signature.
Then you can choose from more than a 100 fonts.....the variety is huge.
I found mine at number 44 because I’m frivolous like that. I love doodly things.
Next choose the size of your signature, and the color of the font and the background.
At the end “save image as” and you have it on your computer.
Next step is to host it on your image hosting site. All my pictures are on PHOTOBUCKET and I briefly explained how to use photo bucket two weeks ago here: CREATE A BLOG BUTTON WITH CODE
Once you have your imag'es DIRECT LINK from photobucket you copy it directly in the red, BOLD section of this code.
