How to add an email me widget to blog.

I have recently discovered a superb website and blog which has some fabulous freebies to use on your own blog, for scrapbooking or anything creative you want to do.  It's by a very talented lady called Cathe (pronounced Cathy) her website and blog is http://justsomethingimade.com/. She is a graphic designer, creative blogger, and flea market enthusiast.  This leads me to today's 'How to' post.

This is a REALLY simple one to do!  You definitely need to give it a go!  On Cathe's website she has some really cute 'email me' images and a simple tutorial telling you how to put them on your blog.  This is so easy to do and looks fabulous. I chose this cute little postcard, just fell in love when I saw it!!



Here's how I did it -

1) Hop over to http://justsomethingimade.com/2009/01/e-mail-gadget-for-your-blog/ .
2) Choose the image you want to use.
3) Go to design on your blog, click on layout and then click on add a gadget.
4) Upload the image you have chosen and then in the link box you need to type the following text changing the writing highlighted in red to you own email address. You literally only need the text shown below no http or anything.

mailto:youremail@gmail.com

Now press save and your done. Just make sure in layout you have placed the email gadget in the position you want.



The last thing you need to do is check your email me gadget is working! Bingo you're all done!

Leave a comment or email me using my new gadget to let me know what you think of this 'How  to' post or if you decide to add an email gadget.

Thanks to Cathe and her great designs!  There is so much great stuff on her site, even if you don't want to add an email widget you are sure to find something else you will want to use.  I love this cuckoo clock but not quite sure why I would need it on my blog but in time I'm sure I'll find a place for it.  In fact I'm going now to see where I can put it.


How cute is that! It's so adorable!

    1. Hi Danielle, thanks for stopping by. It should work with any email, it's just I happen to have a gmail account.

      Also, have you read about being a 'no reply blooger'? If you change your settings it means that people can reply to your comments by email and you will get the reply to your email. Makes life easier I think? Just a thought. :) you may prefer not too,

      Take care

      Kate
