How to: Setup a Subscribe Button for Your Blog

This tutorial is a continuation of the How to Setup a Feed (Feedburner) for Your Blog. If you haven't already done so, follow the link above to set up your feed before continuing on.

For those of you who are continuing, let's begin...

Special Note:} This tutorial will cover adding an frame tag or image to the sidebar of your blog. You should have already found an image you wish to use and saved it to your computer. If you need help locating and image you would like to use you may visit my Extras page for a list of frame tags.
Additional Special Note:} You will once again need the address of your blog Feed which you used in the last tutorial. You can return to feed name to view this information again.

You will want to navigate to the "Design" tab (used to be "Layout") and click on "Add a Gadget"...
A pop-up window will appear. Scroll down to the Picture selection and click on either the word "Picture" or the plus sign next to it...

In the next window be sure the "Shrink to fit" is UNCHECKED and then click the "Browse" button...

Navigate to where you have the image saved on your computer, click on the image and then click "Open"...

In the "Link" box type or paste the link to your Feedburner address...

Then click the orange "Save" button...
Your new picture image now appears in the sidebar of your blog. You can move it to a different location in your sidebar by clicking and dragging the box...
Just remember to click the orange "Save" button if you rearrange your sidebar gadgets.

That's it! You now have a button set up on the sidebar of your blog which enables your visitors to subscribe to your blog feed. Congratulations!
