Unlike before, you now have the option to design your blogger blog the way you want, why? Developers have started focusing and building more features for the blogger platform.

Tell me, what feature do you see on the WordPress platform that you would like to be on your blogger blog? Just make the search and you'll see it.

A,B,C Steps on How To Add Custom Form to your Blogger blog

I have dropped how to add a stylish contact form on your BlogSpot on this article and the video tutorial. But if you are lazy to click those links, you can follow the below procedure to create your very own contact form

Steps
  1. Go to your BlogSpot dashboard and click on "Layout"
  2. Click "Add Gadget"
  3. And click "More Gadget"
  4. Then click "Contact Form". Or you can easily search for contact form using the search box.
  5. Once you've successfully added the contact form to your widget, click "Template"
  6. Now click "Edit HTML".

Now search for this code ]]></b:skin>

Note: To make your search easy, simply click the HTML editor box and simultaneously press the ctrl + f key to bring out a search box.

Have you seen the short code? If yes, right above the code, simply add the following tag

#ContactForm1{display: none !important;}

Have you done that? If yes, simply click the " Save " button and you are done with the first step.

Doing the above steps will make the contact form invincible on the widget area but works well on the page you're adding the below code to.

Next Stage

  1. Clicking "Pages" at your blogger menu
  2. Press"New Page" to take you to your page editor.

In the " Page Title" type what you want your contact to be called. E.g. it could be " Contact Me" or " Contact Us ".

In the compose area, click " HTML " and paste the below code in the compose box

&amp;amp;amp;lt;style type="text/css"&amp;amp;amp;gt;
 .contact-form-widget{margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto;width:600px;max-width:100%;padding:25px;background:#fff}.contact-title{text-align:center;font:41px fantasy;color:#121212;margin-bottom:25px}.contactf-name,.contactf-email{float:left;width:47%}.contactf-name{margin-right:6%}.name-icon img,.email-icon img{background:transparent!important;border:medium none!important;box-shadow:none!important;padding:11px 0!important}.name-icon,.email-icon{position:absolute;z-index:1}.contact-form-name,.contact-form-email,.contact-form-email-message,.contact-form-name:hover,.contact-form-name:focus,.contact-form-email:hover,.contact-form-email:focus,.contact-form-email-message:hover,.contact-form-email-message:focus{width:100%;max-width:100%;margin:0 0 25px;padding:10px 10px 10px 25px;font:bold 16px cursive;text-shadow:0 1px 2px #ddd;color:#121212;background:transparent!important;border-color:#121212;border-width:0 0 2.5px;-webkit-box-shadow:none;-moz-box-shadow:none;box-shadow:none}.contact-form-name,.contact-form-email{height:40px}.contact-form-email-message,.contact-form-email-message:hover,.contact-form-email-message:focus{padding:10px!important}.contact-form-email-message{height:150px;border-width:2.5px!important}.contact-form-button-submit,.contact-form-button-submit:hover{background:#121212!important;width:30%;height:37px;font:bold 13px "Lucida Grande";letter-spacing:2px;color:#fff;text-align:center;border:medium none;cursor:pointer;display:block;margin:0 auto;outline:none}.contact-form-cross{border:medium none!important;box-shadow:none!important;padding:0!important}
 &amp;amp;amp;lt;/style&amp;amp;amp;gt;
