Want an easy way to make your blog look instantly better? A blog signature adds a custom and professional touch to your blog.
Many people I talk to assume that this is a difficult task but believe me it is not! You do not have to be a CSS or HTML expert in order to have a great looking signature. The easiest way to do this is by adding Social Network Buttons.
Looking to add friends to your facebook or twitter? Want to flaunt your RSS Feed or Technorati Page? Use a social network button to grab your readers attention and gain more visitors to these additional pages. It's easy to do!
Here is an easy way to do this:
1) Find the Buttons- There are many sites that provide free Social Networking Buttons that look very professional. Here are a few I recommend: Free Icons Download, Social Media Buttons, TwitterButton, and RSS Icons. Save to your computer.
2) Host Your Buttons- Upload the buttons (individually) to an image hosting site. I use Photobucket.com. Be sure to get the URL. (If using Photobucket you will hit share then get link code. You'll want to use the 'Direct Link for Layout Pages' url)
3) Use the Following Code- <a href=http://www.WHEREYOUWANTTOGOHERE.com><img src=http://IMAGELINKHERE.com alt="" /></a>
4) Add to blog signature- When you log in to Active Rain click on ‘My Home' and then on the left side of the page click on ‘Settings'. Where you see the ‘Signature' box, switch to HTML and post your code(s). Click ‘Update' to save.
It's that simple! Feel free to add text or even a link to your website.
