Sponsored Ads
If you look at my blog, you will find that I have added an author signature at the bottom of all my blog posts. If you would like to have one just like mine, you can follow this simple tutorial and add an author signature at the footer of your blog posts.

Adding an author signature is a good way to track your blog posts especially when you are offering guest posts option on your blog. It helps you identify which posts are self-written and which are written by guest bloggers. I have included the codes in the following step-by-step guide to help you implement this feature easily on your blog. So, please read on to learn more.


Author Signature Implementation Guide
Copy the code below and then edit it to your own personal information.

Author Signature Codes
<div class='blockquoteauth'>

</div>

Then, paste it to the page at "Setting" > "Formatting" and scroll down towards the end of  Formating page.

Look at the picture above, that it where you should paste your author signature codes.

After pasting your author signature codes to Formatting page of your Blogger.com account, now go to "Design" > "Edit HTML"

When you are at the "Edit HTML" page, search for the code ]]></b:skin> . Now, copy the Author Signature CSS codes below.

Author Signature CSS Codes
.blockquoteauth {
margin-left: -10px;
margin-bottom: 20px;
margin-top: 0px;
padding-left: 10px;
padding-right: 10px;
padding-top: 20px;
padding-bottom: 20px;
width: 100%;
height: auto;
text-align: left;
font-style:italic;
color: #424242;
font-size: 11px;
}

Once you have copy the codes above, paste the codes BEFORE the ]]></b:skin>.

Finally, Save Template.

Now, go ahead and create a new blog post, you will see that the author signature will auto appear in your new blog post.So, from now onward, all your new blog posts will have a customized author signature.

For you old blog posts, you will have to manually paste in the author signature. Just like what I did, I pasted in the author signature codes manually in all my blog posts.
