I was always puzzled with how my fellow bloggers were able to link their Facebook page on the right side of their blog in order for new fans to follow.
Like do I have to upgrade my membership in order to have the ability to do so???
Well I am glad that’s not the case! It’s so easy!
You can go about it in two ways!
Here is one way
You can get widgets by clicking on your closest link to Dashboard and if your “Right Now” box is still located at the top left of your dashboard just look for the theme of your page and the number of widgets you have which is below tthe Content which explains the # of your posts, # of pages, # of categories, and # of your tags.
So what your looking for is your specific theme and # of widgets. For example mine is:
Theme Motion with 7 Widgets
Click on the number of Widgets you have and follow the directions provided under Available Widgets
Drag available widgets that are listed on the left side of the page to the sidebar on the right side of the page.
This will activate the available widget so that others can see them too! Click on the dropbox arrow (the arrow that points down next to the widget name) to customize it accordingly.
And you can drag widgets on the right side to the left if you wish to deactivate them so that it no longer appears on your page.
Take note that if you wish to keep the settings you made on the widget that you wish to remove at this time. You must drag it all the way to the bottom of the page in the box that will help save the settings for you.
Scroll all the way down to get to know your options
Pay attention to where you drag your widgets!
If you wish to attach an image of your blog award or link your blog’s facebook page so that it is visible for everyone to see.. you’d want to be careful not to place the widget under these categories:
If you place a blog award image or Facebook box in Footers, you will have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to actually see it!
