Floating Social Media Buttons for Blogger



I like using the floating social media buttons because I don’t like the reader to scroll back up or down to be able to just click on the like button and share it with her Facebook friends.

So today, I’m going to share with you guys the code for the floating social media buttons for blogger that I am using here in Bloggers Tech. I have also prepared different background colors for the floating buttons so that it could go with the colors with your blog or have the color that you preferred to use.

WHY HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA SHARE BUTTONS ON YOUR BLOG?


This will totally help the exposure to your blog. Your readers could share it with their friends, and their friends will share it to their friends and so on. This will really mean traffic to your blog.

Another thing is that, it also helps and gives you a positive result on search results and impressions, which is totally great! All you have to do is put up some social media share buttons and encourage your readers to share, +1 or tweet about your post and you’re already trying to increase the exposure of your blog.

Here are the different colors I've prepared for you guys for our floating social media buttons:

If you have selected the desired color that you want then select their codes below according to the color that you want.



HOW TO ADD SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS ON BLOGGER?

Rated BT: Free Blogger Themes for Blogspot 2012


Last week, Friday I’ve shared a quick step by step tutorial on how to make your own blog on blogger. Usually, before I write contents I look for a design for the blog that would be great for niche and to my taste.
Some people find it hard to find some Blogspot themes and as for me, I find it hard to choose among all themes that fit to my niche. Just like here in Bloggers Tech, I’ve changed the theme I think about at least five (5) times, hopefully this would be the last theme (for this year, LOL).

I found tones free blogger themes that I personally want to use to my blogs. But I can’t have different blogs on different niches. I’d be killing myself I do that and I do admit I’m not a good writer.

So today, since my aim here in Bloggers Tech is to help you out on your blog, I’ll be giving you the top themes I found online that I find it really attractive and more elegant than other themes for Blogger.

I’ve categorize some of the themes, so some of you may find it more easier to browse the themes and find the ideal look and taste for your blog. Don’t mind the name of the theme or the content in the demo, since it’s just a demo. You can customize it, make it go along with your taste.

Some people ignore some themes because there are free blogger themes that named “MONEY EZINE” so obviously, the theme is best for money making blog but it’s green it could be for health blogs too! Also, you can change the color, so usually I don’t mind the color unless I’m lazy to edit the whole theme or at most very much satisfied of everything the theme looks.

So what I look at is the arrangement of the sidebars, slideshow, footer, etc. I take a look at the demo and see if it wouldn’t take too long to load and would not be too messy to look because of multiple sidebars.

Anyway, without further ado here are the Blogspot themes I found that I think you would too like to use to your blog. Especially now that it’s a new year, maybe you want to try out a new look for your blog.  Here are the themes I’ve gathered for you:

FASHION


DEPOSIT PHOTOS



LIVE DEMO     |     DOWNLOAD

These theme could be for photo bloggers but because of the way it's designed and the demo itself. I see it more as a Fashion theme. 


FEMINA



LIVE DEMO     |     DOWNLOAD


PHOTO BLOG


PICPHOTOPLATE

PRIMAL

SIMPLE

Some bloggers prefer simple and clean look so I’ve found this 2 themes that I think you’ll love to use.


DESIGN PILE


LIVE DEMO     |     DOWNLOAD

Design pile have different versions. It has Pink, Blue and green versions. Above photo and demo is the pink version.



SUPER CLEAN


LIVE DEMO     |     DOWNLOAD

GOOGLE PLUS



LIVE DEMO     |     DOWNLOAD


ADAPTED FROM WORDPRESS


Most (or shall I say all) of the free Blogger themes in this category are I think adapted from Wordpress. It wouldn’t be quite much obvious that you’re using blogger, because of these themes. I really want to use this but I’m happy with the theme I’m using on my travel blog and I think same goes to my readers too.

Also, the themes below have also versions that have no slides. So if you don’t like the slide show, you can have the theme without slides uploaded on your blogger blog. There may be some themes below that you’ll discover some

How to Make a Blog on Blogger or Blogspot?


Some of you may have already know how to make a blog on Blogger already but I just want to make this post so that we could guide those wanna be bloggers and help them out in creating their own free blog on Blogger.

If you’re one of these people who wants to know and new to this, here are the things that you should have when you want to find out on how to make a blog on Blogspot.

*A Google / Blogger Account
- Blogger or Blogspot is owned by Google. If you already have a Gmail account or any account under Google, you could use this on your Blogger blog. Same User ID and password with other accounts you have on Google can be used in Blogger.

*A niche and/or topics you want to discuss on your blog
- As for me, before I create another blog I think of what topic I want to discuss with the audience. A topic and a niche I want to pursue that my audience could have a benefit of, a niche that I love and not because it’s on demand. It’s hard to blog about a topic that you don’t even love or at least an interest, so make sure you’ve got the determination to do it! If you have the determination, then go on and learn how to make a blog on Blogspot through this post.

Another thing is that I base the name of the blog according to my niche. Just like when I decided to create Bloggers Tech, I told myself that I want to have a blog that I (with other interested bloggers to post here) could help out other bloggers and who want to be bloggers. So it’s like I’m the tech support of bloggers? Tekki blogger? Tech Blog? And then come up with the name Bloggers Tech.

Design and content will be an issue later on. Let’s just have and build our blog. That’s why we have this topic how to make a blog on Blogspot to help you out and guiding you.

Now next thing you may possibly ask me are the following:

*Is it for free?
Yes! It is free but the URL of your blog wouldn’t be your own domain. The address of your blog would be like YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com and not like BloggersTech.com. But if you want to buy your own domain, you can have your own Blogger blog have its own domain, just like Bloggers Tech.

*Why it is for free?
As you know Google also have Google AdSense, and they want to offer you a free blog hosting because they want to make money through Google AdSense where you too could make money from.

*Can I customize my blog?
-Yes! You can upload your own template or the template that you downloaded. There are themes that don’t work anymore, and you might need some knowledge on at least basic HTML and CSS to fix it but these can be just searched online. Else, you can hire someone else to customize your blog, like me! You don’t have to learn how to make a blog on Blogger anymore and stress yourself in making your blog look better when you hire someone to do the job, but if you could do it yourself then why not?

Anyway, just watch the video I prepared below and I hope this would help you out step by step.






Here are the tips I have mentioned in the video:
*Don’t make your blog URL too long. 
(e.g. THISISTHEBLOGNAMEIDECIDEDTOHAVE.blogspot.com)

*Use check availability before entering captcha and clicking next. So you don’t have to go over and over again. Reloading the page and entering the captcha.

*The theme you chose on creating the blog is not permanent. You can change and customize it after creating your blog successfully.

By the way, I apologize if my voice there is so….so… BORING! I was sleepy when I recorded that and my only free time is during at night. Hope I didn’t make you fall asleep. LOL.

Anyway, if you’ve got some questions, concerns or anything that you would like to find out on how to make a blog on Blogger for free, then just leave it as a comment below and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

The Bloggers Tech – ME FIRST!


I really don’t know what to say in this first post, my mind right now is more thinking of what should be here in this blog. Honestly, right now I’m still adding up some features that I want to add up on this blog.

So anyway, I’ve looked up at Google and asking WHAT SHOULD BE IN MY FIRST POST?

Yes, my brain is that empty right now that I’m just writing (or shall I say typing) what my mind wants to speak out. Anyway, they said my first post could be about anything at all, but I have to make sure I have these things:


INTRODUCE MYSELF

My full name is GAY AIDA DUMAGUING, 24 years old Filipina from Cebu Philippines. Yes, I’m a female not a homosexual, GAY is my name not my homosexuality. I don’t know why my parents name that though.


A graduate of B.S. Information Technology and now working as a freelance SEO Expert, serving businesses, entrepreneurs and bloggers who are in need of my expertise on this field from my own home.


At first, some people think I’m strict or snob but really I’m a loud and crazy gal. Most of my friends gave me a title as the most friendly but I don’t know now. I’ve been working at home all day that I don’t get to socialize with my fellow humans.


WHAT IS MY REASON FOR BLOGGING?

If you have check out my ABOUT ME page you’ll be able to read it there, but I don’t want to make you click there and there, why not just read it here, right?!


I blog and started this blog because I want to help out people who wants to personalize, enhance or what I usually call “LEVEL UP” their Blogspot blog. Coz, I know that there are some features in Blogspot that are quite boring to look, especially when you compare it to Wordpress blogs.


But don’t be dismayed, if you just did or will start out a blog too then I’m just here for yah! Just be up to date to the latest posts here in Bloggers Tech, if you can (and if you want to) you can subscribe to my newsletter.


WHAT WILL I BE BLOGGING ABOUT?

Obviously, I’ll blog about Blogspot/Blogger. I’ll blog about how you can make money from it, how you can level up the entire look, share with you some great themes to make it more attractive, share some tips on how to make your blog SEO friendly, and more! (and I don’t know what’s more).

ENCOURAGE COMMENTS

I don’t want to force you into this but if you’d like to drop me a comment below, feel free to do so. Spread the lovin’ (not the hatin’)… If you’ve got some problems in using some of my codes, tips, etc. then you can drop it as a comment, so that who else who have same problem as yours, we can show how to fix it and together, we’ll fix it.

Another thing, if you want to REQUEST  a topic, like you want me to teach you here (through blogpost) on how to add Facebook like box, twitter, etc. You can use the floating REQUEST button on your right, send me a message, include your name (so I could dedicate it to you), if you want you can include your e-mail, twitter and Facebook URL so I could contact you when I made a post related to it.

Don’t worry, it’s for FREE! As long as I’ll discuss it here through Bloggers Tech and not one on one. I ran out of topics to discuss sometimes, so if I haven’t got that topic yet you can use that form.


BLOG POST SCHEDULE

I'll try to give you updates and post some tutorials maybe 3 times a week, but at least once a week. My tutorials here (mostly) will have videos, so I'll have to record and edit some videos for you so it will take some time because I'm also juggling it with my job.

Also, feel free to check out my services! If you’re interested or you’ve got some inquiries or questions about it, you can contact me through the Bloggers Tech fan page, my twitter and through the contact page.

Alright?! Is that all?! I guess so…

Please don't forget to:


  • drop me question
  • leave a comment
  • follow me on Twitter
  • Like us on Facebook

Thank you and let's start blogging!
