How To Add A Custom Signature To Blog Posts In Blogger

I've started to get more serious about blogging and to start 2016 off right I decided to get serious about my brand and brand look.

One aspect of that brand look is a blog post signature. I've seen several bloggers that have a pretty signature sign off for their blog posts and I've wondered how they do that and how I could do it. I'm not well versed in HTML coding, so after some online searches, I found a few articles with tips and HTML code for Blogger that would help me create the post signature I longed for.

Here are two ways I found for adding a signature to your blog posts from I Can Build A Blog and Code it Pretty. I've opted to use the second option because of my blog design.

  5. Thank you very much for sharing this. I tried several sources and yours is the easiest. I uploaded the signature image on one of my blog post and used this URL for the CSS code. Very simple.

  6. OMG! Thanks so much! Both options worked but I preferred to use the second one. I just changed my blog's template because I can't get rid of my old siggie which I uploaded through Photobucket. Your post/tutorial is a life-saver!!!
