E-Mail Gadget For Your Blog

It took me a while to figure out how to add a gadget/button to my blogspot blog allowing someone to contact me by email. A few bloggers have asked me how to do this, so I thought I’d make a simple tutorial. I don’t know if this will work on blogs other than blogspot.

1. Choose the JPG image you want to use for your gadget, your mugshot is always nice, or below are a few I designed for the taking. If you want to use one of these, click on the image of choice and drag or copy to your desktop.

2. Go to CUSTOMIZE on your blog

3. Choose ADD A GADGET

4.Choose PICTURE

5. Type in something like “Contact Me” or “E-Mail Me” or simply leave it blank.

6. In the LINK area, type in your email address with “mailto:” at the beginning, and nothing else. No http://, etc. For example, I typed: mailto:cathe@justsomethingimade.com

7. For the image, BROWSE to the image you want to use

8. Click SHRINK TO FIT, if necessary, and SAVE

9. Back on your CUSTOMIZE page, drag your new e-mail gadget to wherever you want it in your sidebar.

10. Leave a comment and let me know how it works for you!

UPDATE: I have had a few people note that they are unable to email me through my button, most can, but for those who can’t, I’ve added the actual address just above my own contact button in the column to the right. I broke it up by using (at) instead of @ and (dot) instead of a dot to keep spambots from abusing my email address. Most people know to type out the email correctly when corresponding. You may consider doing the same on your blog.
