8. Activate Blogger Contact Widget for your Blog

Finally, to make this tweak work, you must add blogger contact widget to your blog. And you can remove it back or hide it; whichever pleases you, it is just a requirement that you activate the contact page by adding blogger contact widget to your blogger blog.
If you have already added the blogger contact widget to your blogger blog, you may skip this step and everything would be fine.

Recap: essentials needed to create a custom contact page for your blogger blog

Internet Access

Since you would be connecting to the internet, an active and relatively fast internet access is a requirement for this process.


You can use your modem, WiFi or connect your phone. Any ISP is okay so long as the internet connection is of mid-range or high-end.


Your time

From start to finish, you may need to designate between 15 to 30 minutes for this process. Though, that greatly depends on the speed of both your internet connectivity and your PC.


Blogger contact widget

Before the contact forms visible in the separate contact page created on this page, you must first add blogger contact widget to your blogger blog.


Once the blogger contact widget has been added, you may then delete the contact widget or hide it. In either case, the blogger contact page created using the tutorial above would still work fine.


Your Blogger Blog ID

Your blogger blog ID must be put in the space provided for it otherwise; this contact page would not work for your blog.


Use your PC

Whichever you find more comfortable to use, you can start and complete these processes using either your smartphone or PC but I strongly recommend using your PC as majority do not understand how to using text editors on smartphones.


Your Browser

Either you intend to initiate and complete this process using your smartphone or PC, a fully functional internet browser is a requirement.


For these processes, I recommend Google Chrome, Mozilla / Firefox or Edge web browsers.


Final Note on the Blogger Blog Contact Page

If you already have a separate blogger blog contact page and wonder why you need to make the changes, well, you may not need it but; is your current blogger blog contact page better than the one you see in the demo?


If your answer is 'No', then you need to switch to this contact page.


But why should switch?


For any website or blog, the primary source through which your audience may contact you is via your contact page. And as such, having a standard and elegant contact page boosts the trust your audience already have in you.


And if your blog offer professional services, you definitely need to have a prossional contact page on your blog.
