Grab 3 Custom Blogger Email Subscription Widgets

'; div.innerHTML = summary; } //]]>
What's new today? Well, I have redesigned custom email subscription widgets for blogger and am decided to release some of them here. Recently, SB got several looks and styles, am not just contented so I keep changing some parts of the header, or the overall theme - today, this look is Official. And I am going to offer to you some of my coding experiments that worked well. Recently, I included this to the list of Top 5 Blog Tools for Building a Great Blog. Before I give it, let me tell you some tips on how to code your own:
  • Don't start from scratch.
  • Look for several coding tutorials and study them with interest.
  • Copy those codes, and experiment on it - keep on tweaking, and you will know something your own from there.
  • See? You did not start from scratch, but your created a unique idea from the existing one.
Excited for the code of the custom blogger email subscription widget?
This custom email subscription widget is powered by feedburner, if you don't have a feedburner account, better get one now.

Will they work as expected?
You can conveniently test them without putting it to your blog or any test blog. You can use w3schools HTML editor.

Final Step - make it your own!
Edit the code highlighted in green with yours. How? Log-in to your feedburner account, go to publicize, then Email Subscriptions and find yours, it's the title of your feedburner account.
