How To Add A Blogger Follow Button without Followers?

I was really wondering how can I add a Blogger Follower button without displaying the followers and that bulky blogger widget. After some research and some rational thinking I came up with a simple trick which will help you add this button with least effort.

I always hated that bulky looking follow widget in blogger and I finally came up with a very simple and light weight widget which you can add to your blog very easily.

Just follow below simple steps to create your own Blogger Follow widget.
1. Just Sign in to your Google Account
2. Go to your blog’s Dashboard > Design.
3. Just copy the blog Id from the url (Just the number nothing else).

4. Now paste it at the place in the below code marked in red.

5. Now Just go to Blogger Design Add HTML widget.

6. And Just copy paste the above code with your blog id in the widget and Save.

You are all set. From now on you are free from the bulky bad blogger follow widget and you have a very simple blogger follow widget. Once you are done with adding the widget you will see some thing similar to the below image. Looks simple right..

    My followers aren’t showing up on my blog for some reason. If I were to use this option and my old gadget comes back what will that do to my followers? Any clue?

  12. Abbey says:

    Thank you! For some reason my typical follow gadget hasn’t been working. Nothing shows up in that area on my blog. I posted your idea on my blog and now people can follow again…I think? Do you know if anything will happen to my followers when my old gadget decides to show up again?

  13. @Abbey I recommend you to remove the old gadget from your blog. It cannot mysteriously show up if you haven’t added it in your blog. The trick I mentioned works perfectly so relax.

    This is great. Thank you very much. I totally agree the original widget is way to bulky, as are many other ones. Do you by any chance if there’s a weather widget that can show both farenheit and celsius at the same time? The ones I’ve found so far require that you chose. Anyway, thanks again!

  17. Very cool! Worked like a charm!

  18. Qamar says:

    Thanks but this is not working properly for me. I don’t quite understand the instructions, sorry. When I try it out, I get to follow my blog but it ends up saying you are now following lastet techtips which is obviously not my blog. How do you fix that?

  22. Hi,

    I just saw your blog and observed that you have correctly implemented the button. Cheers.

  29. @Nine Just add the height and width attributes to the image and you can even make the buttons bigger or smaller..

    Just look at the below code..
