HTML Code For A Custom Tweet This Button for Blogger

NOTE: GoodNCrazy.com has moved to the world of self hosted Wordpress! If you haven't please subscribe to the GoodnCrazy.com RSS feed you'll still be able to find me over there! Cheers!

Okay, for a while now I've been trying out various methods to add a TWEET THIS button to my Blogger Post Template. You know? The little Twitter Bird at the end of posts allowing readers to directly tweet out a post!

Well, now I've got it. Just in case you want one...??

First locate a Twitter Birdie icon, or create something in Photoshop or Elements quick!

In blogger go to settings/formatting scroll down to post template and place this code in the box. .



The parts in ALL CAPS are the custom parts you will replace.

  1. The words you want to show in the tweet.(Mine says "Tweeting about this GoodNCrazy post!")
  2. The tinyurl of your blog's home page.(If you want a tiny url of your actual post you can manually change each time for just that post if you want.)
  3. The photobucket image of a bird. (If you don't know how to use photobucket or need a free twitter image, contact me!)
  4. Your blog title.


Test my example here:

Tweet Me from GoodNCrazy.com

Great for standard twitter, but i can't seem to make it work for m.twitter.com :(
Probably twitter's fault. :/

Thanks, I wanted to add this but didn't know how. I'm going to give it a try. I'm also going to mention this on my Friday "Things I Learned This Week" post at www.zemeks.blogspot.com with a link back here.

I can't figure out how to make photobucket work! HELP can you send me a cute bird?

Jon said...

Technology hates me, but after quite a few tries I got!! :D I really appreciate your efforts and all the best.

nolapetsource said...

Yea! it worked! Thank you sooo much! I have been searching all day and was about to either give up or rip all my hair out- or both! Yea!!!

Ryan said...

I was looking for some code without the image to include in my blog and modified yours and it worked great. I don't know what I was doing wrong but there is a lot of misinformation out there - I tried 2 other methods - so testing and persistence is the key.

Also, if you include RT @yourTwitterName in your message you can track how many people have retweeted your message.

Would you mind sharing this on Twitter

Ryan said...

Now if only I could remember to double check my comment before I hit the submit button I would be able to ask people to RT the right account on Twitter.

Sorry for the typo.


Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
