How To Use Bloglovin' On Your SquareSpace Site
"Today over 25,000,000 people per month visit Bloglovin to discover inspiring content from millions of bloggers from all around the world. Bloglovin launched in November 2007 with the purpose of helping anyone to read all their favourite blogs in one place."
Many SquareSpace users are bloggers, taking advantage of the stylish platform to promote their passions. And for this reason, it is handy to know how to integrate the site with other platforms that help to boost your reach. One of these is Bloglovin and below is a quick tutorial of how to integrate it into your site.
Once you have signed up on Bloglovin, it will ask you to put in your SquareSpace URL. If you are having problems getting it to recognise the URl, try using the link that goes directly to your blog. Then click 'Claim It' and then you will be given a code to put into the website. Copy and paste this and then head over to your SquareSpace site.
Embed to the site
Now, you can do this in two ways:
1. Embed the link with code onto the blog sidebar, or
2. Insert the code into the 'Page Header Injector'
Either way, you will get a bit of text saying 'Follow me on Bloglovin'.
It is hard to customise the text for this without knowing code, so make sure that it is in a place that suits.
Here is a quick video I did for a client (The Pink House) to demonstrate how to do this. Hope this has helped! Get in touch with any questions :)
