Bloggy Hint #2 - Using a Signature

Want to use a cute signature like this

on your blog?

Here's what to do:

1. Go to and create you a pretty little siggy.

2. Choose the option to create HTML.

3. Save this HTML in a word document (I'm sure there are other ways to do this, just is just how I did it).

4. When you get to the part in your post where you want your siggy, switch to "Edit HTML" and cute and paste your HTML from your word document.

5. Switch back to "Compose" mode and fix your spacing and such.


Thanks to Smoochiefrog for these instructions for permanently installing a signature so you don't have to cut and past each time you post:

On the dashboard, it's under Settings and formatting. Then you scroll down to post template. You insert your code there and it will post it every time for you.

Pin It!

Ok I went, I looked, and I decided - my name looks retarded in all those fonts! I think I need to get a more exotic name and then go back - some like Tallulah or Antoinette.....

do you have to add it everytime or is there somewhere I can put it where it does it automatically?

Ash- the only way I know to do it is cut and paste it every time.

And that is why you only see it every now and then- I get lazy!

On Blogger there is a way to have it automatically put in there, but I can't remember how to do it now. :)

Ok, I made a dummy blog and found it.

On the dashboard, it's under Settings and formatting. Then you scroll down to post template. You insert your code there and it will post it everytime for you.

I have used live signature from pretty much the beginning of my blogging and I don't copy and paste every time.

Here is what you can do: copy your live sig html then, in blogger, go to Dashboard. Next click the Settings tab and go to Formatting. Scroll down until you get to the very bottom where it says post template and paste the html code there. Save your settings and Ba-da-Bing! You now have your live signature on each and every one of your posts. When posting I usually click on the edit html tab to begin my post and then click back to the compose tab so I can see that everything is where I want it.

I hope this helps!

I just did this but my name is so pixelated that it doesn't look right. Did you ever have that trouble? I even did different sizes of fonts and it still looks like crud.
