Opt-in Forms

I spent today creating opt-in forms for each of my blogs. Mind you, other than this one on blogger, which is so easy to install, I have no idea what to do next. My other blogs are in Wordpress and have to be copied into the HTML code. For a non-techie like me, that is a big deal.

Update: With the newer versions of Wordpress and the use of widgets with most themes, adding an opt-in form is now as easy as on a Blogger blog. I went to Aweber and created my form, copied the code that's produced and pasted it into my HTML widget. And I even sound like a techie, don't I?

Until next time,
Carol

  1. Hi

    I'm impressed by your efforts ... doing better in some areas than me.

    HELP! I deseprately want to put opt-in on my Blogger sites..... how did you do that?

    > Where did you get the code?

    > Where does it send response to? An autoresponder or your normal email?

    > How did you get it at the top so it stays there above entries?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi John and thanks for your kind words. I am using aweber as my autoresponder and they provide the script. From there you just copy and paste into the html box in blogger and drag it to where you want it.

    Hope that helps.
