follow on Feedly button for Blogger

I've been clearing up my blog, doing some of the little things like sorting out my gadgets (it is kind of easy to forget about them unless you look at you own blog).

Then Jess was being driven mad trying to create a Feedly button and asked how I found my URL - honestly I know I had a lot of trouble and it took a while for me to sort it out so I thought I'd share...

If you're having trouble getting your Feedly URL to make a button for people to follow you, here's the code I used to make mine. This will work for all blogspot addresses. Copy the code below, paste it into a html gadget and replace the text (seen here in red) with the name of your blog:
<div align="center"><a href='http://cloud.feedly.com/#subscription%2Ffeed%2Fhttp%3A%2F%2Fyourblogname.blogspot.com%2Ffeeds%2Fposts%2Fdefault'  target='blank'><img id="feedlyFollow" src="http://s3.feedly.com/img/follows/feedly-follow-rectangle-volume-big_2x.png" alt="follow us in feedly" width="131" height="56" /></a></div>
Do not use the http://www, just literally the name... so mine is this:
<div align="center"><a href='http://cloud.feedly.com/#subscription%2Ffeed%2Fhttp%3A%2F%2Fcharmaboutyou.blogspot.com%2Ffeeds%2Fposts%2Fdefault'  target='blank'><img id="feedlyFollow" src="http://s3.feedly.com/img/follows/feedly-follow-rectangle-volume-big_2x.png" alt="follow us in feedly" width="131" height="56" /></a></div>
follow us in feedly



**update**

The lovely Pam from Threading My Way is a clever clogs and played with the code so you can add your domain...


<div align="center"><a href='http://cloud.feedly.com/#subscription%2Ffeed%2Fhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.yourwebsitename.com/feeds/posts/default' target='blank'><img id="feedlyFollow" src="http://s3.feedly.com/img/follows/feedly-follow-rectangle-volume-big_2x.png" alt="follow us in feedly" width="131" height="56" /></a></div>



I hope that helps!

  1. Thanks - mine drive me nuts and still doesn't work properly - I'll try this. Feedly looks nice enough but doesn't have the online help that Bloglovin has.

  5. You are a gem, Lucy!!! Thank you!!! I couldn't find my Feedly URL. Like you, I have my own domain, so was trying with that URL, not the Blogger URL. I'm still going to persist with my own domain URL as there's 2 feeds on Feedly, one for each URL.

  7. Hi Lucy, I have a (dumb) question. What does it mean when bloggers say, grab my button? If you have a moment, perhaps you could let me know. Thanks.

  11. Thank you! I use Bloglovin' as well, but I know that some readers use Feedly, so it's nice to provide them with the easy button.

  16. Thank you for posting this. It has taken me a while but I've finally added a Feedly button to my blog. I struggled with the instructions on the Feedly site, but your code worked first time and I was even able to change the size of the button.
