So you’re wondering how to add a Twitter ‘Follow Me’ button to your WordPress Blog. Don’t worry, even if you have trouble adding stuff to WordPress, this should be no trouble at all.
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Go to Twitter.com – Goodies
Make sure you’re logged-in to your Twitter account. Then scroll to the very bottom of the page. You’ll see a list of things next to the Twitter copyright info. Click on “Goodies.”
Step 2: Choose your style
On the next screen choose “Buttons.”
Then choose from the available selections. You can even add a ‘Follow Us’ button.
When you click the one you want, you’ll be given the code to enter in your WordPress blog. Copy this code.
Step 3: Paste the ‘Follow Me’ code in WordPress
In your WordPress Dashboard, left hand column, under the ‘Appearance’ tab , find and click the ‘Widgets’ link.
Drag the ‘Text’ widget into the sidebar column where you want your ‘Follow Me’ button to show up. Paste the code in the box and click ‘Save.’
Now you’ve got a shiny new Twitter “Follow Me” button on your WordPress blog.
That wasn’t too much trouble now was it. =)
