Add Social Subscription Widget in blogger-v2




Hello Readers, Unziptech has already shared many useful articles featuring premium blogger widgets, plugins, tricks etc and this post focuses on the same category.  In this post I am going to share another social subscription widget for blogger. This social subscription will enable users to like/follow you on the social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and subscribe your feeds using the built-in feedburner email subscription widget. Social networks are playing a vital role in blogging these days. The count of followers, fans and subscribers shows the popularity of your blog/website. They also allow you to connect with your online readers and share your content with them. Later in this article, you will find a tutorial to add this widget to your blog and a live demo of this blogger widget.

    1. I checked it..If you want to increase the height and width of the widget you need to make the arrangements in the CSS style rules. Look for #UT-ssw-wrap it has got the height and width attributes, you can change it, according to your sidebar width..
