My blog is called "Creative Smiles" because my designs are the result of incorporating mistakes. With fumble fingers that drop whatever they are holding - repeatedly, it takes a lot of giggles, smiles and creative patience during my crafting process. xx

***UPDATE*** - With the 2020 Blogger format, is your Blogger blog loading very slowly? Mostly in the sidebar? If so, THIS INFORMATION may be helpful.

Would You Like To Gain More Followers?

Would you like to gain more followers, or make it easier for some of your existing followers?
Did you know there are a variety of ways your visitors can follow you?

On Blogger, they can follow using their FOLLOW feature, and by email.

Some people prefer "follow by email" as it prompts them to visit more quickly and frequently than if they are using a Reader.

To add the FOLLOW BY EMAIL option:

  1. Go to your dashboard.
  2. On the left side, choose LAYOUT.
  3. If you have a sidebar on your blog, that's a good place to add this gadget/widget.
  4. To the right side of LAYOUT, click on ADD A GADGET.
  5. A new window pops up.
  6. Scroll down to FOLLOW BY EMAIL (blue envelope on left and PLUS symbol on right). Click on the PLUS SYMBOL. 
  7. In the new window, both Title and FeedBurner URL should be populated for you. All you need to do is click on the orange SAVE button.

And that's it!

Hoping this helps you and your followers.

I always like to see the feature to follow by email on people's blogs. I never look at a feeder myself so this way I am prompted to look and leave a comment more readily. I am glad I featured it on my blog so that others can follow that way too.
