OgbongeBlog FeedBurner Subscription Box For Blogger Blog
On our OgbongeBlog template series, I posted how we can place share buttons, subscription and related post widgets at the end of each post, but in that article, I didn't offer OgbongeBlog's Subscription widget for blogger, this is why this post will show you how to add OgbongeBlog's Feedburner subscription box below each post on your blog and at the sidebar.
Before using this widget, you would have to create a Feedburner account, burn your feed and also optimize your feeds. For free social media promotion, you would want to automatically tweet all your latest post to Twitter with hashtags, short URL, and links.
