How to: Add Widgets

Heey guys, so as I'm relatively new to blogging, adding widgets was one of the layout bits that I found rather difficult! For this reason, I thought I'd show you all the sites where I learnt how to get widgets on my blog (Instead of creating instructions, as they do it perfectly).

The first kind of widget that I got on my blog was my social media buttons (which I have now deleted. to make my blog look more professional). These buttons were the hardest to know how to add, as I literally trawled the internet for a website or Youtube video to explain how to add them! I then came across a video called 'How to Install Social Media Icons on Blogger Sidebar - The EASY way!' By Emily M

I was quite happy with these buttons, until I saw other peoples blogs, who had scrolling twitter feeds at the bottom, and I really wanted one of these. This was an easier link to find, as It's all on the twitter website.

My Instagram feed was the latest addition to my blog, and this was also a very easy link to find! The website that you get the codes from allows you to add as many pictures as you like, and change the size of them, which was really helpful, especially as my sidebars were quite narrow, when I got the widget! This was the quickest for me to install on my blog.

So I hope you all found this post useful, if you did I would love to hear it!

See you soon...
