In the past, we have shown you how to add Facebook follow button in Blogger, Pinterest Follow button in Blogger and Google+ follow button in Blogger. Recently, one of our users asked us about adding a slide out Google Friend's connect follow button on Blogger? Google Friend's connect follow widget allows Blogger users to keep a track of their favorite blogs that are hosted at Blogger. All the latest updates from different blogs you follow are shown on the Blogger dashboard under Reading list, making it easier for followers to read your updates. Today in this article, we will show you how to add slide out Google Friend's connect follow button in Blogger.

What is Slide out Follower Button?

If you're looking to increase your followers, then this slide out follow button will provide you a great opportunity to convert your visitors into followers. This follower button sticks to the bottom right side of your screen, allowing your visitors to easily subscribe to your blog for updates.
Since, because of the slide out feature this widget doesn't takes a lot of space on your screen. Therefore, it does not compromise on user friendly experience nor it interrupts a user while he is browsing or ready your content. 

You can check the demo of this widget here.


Add Slide out Follow button Widget in Blogger:

To add a Google friend's connect follow button in blogger please follow the below instructions correctly: 

The very first thing you need to do is to add the CSS codes. Go to Blogger >> Template >> Edit HTML >> Search for ]]></b:skin> tag and just above it paste the following code. You can also customize the below codes to match your style of template color scheme:

#arlinafollowSubscribe {
    background-color: #464646;
    width: 220px;
    color: #fff;
    position: fixed;
    z-index: 999;
    right: 10px;
    bottom: 0
}
.arlinafollowButton {
    background: #464646;
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 13px;
    line-height: 28px;
    padding: 0 10px;
    text-decoration: none;
    position: absolute;
    top: -28px;
    right: 0;
    display: block;
    border-radius: 2px 2px 0 0;
    height: 28px;
    font-weight: 700
}
.arlinafollowButton span {
    background: url("https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fc3-0J--iW8/VyPNjRmxJtI/AAAAAAAAD7U/emRRY6ntYEg3IaL-mev9XxE9M1OKh50fACLcB/s1600/follow-blogger.png") no-repeat scroll 0 3px transparent;
    padding-left: 15px
}
.arlinafollowButton:hover,
.arlinafollowButton:focus,
.followActive,
.followActive:hover {
    color: #fff
}
.arlinafollowButton:hover span,
.followActive span {
    background-position: 0 -37px!important
}
.followactive {
    background-color: #333
}
.arlinafollowForm {
    padding: 15px;
    margin: auto;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 12px
}
.arlinafollowForm p {
    margin: 10px 0
}
.arlinaFollowFooter {
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 11px;
    padding: 7px 0;
    margin: 0 0 -15px;
    border-top: 1px solid #3c3c3c
}
.arlinaFollowFooter a {
    color: #aaa;
    background: none;
    text-decoration: none
}
.arlinaFollowFooter a:hover {
    color: #fff;
    background: none
}

Again in the template, search for </head> and just above it paste the following jQuery code:

<script type="text/javascript">
/*<![CDATA[*/
!function(e){e(document).ready(function(){e.extend(e.easing,{easeOutCubic:function(e,o,t,a,n){return a*((o=o/n-1)*o*o+1)+t}});var o=e("#arlinafollowSubscribe"),t="-"+o.outerHeight()+"px";o.hide().css({bottom:"-510px"}),setTimeout(function(){o.show().animate({bottom:t})},500),e(".arlinafollowButton").click(function(a){o.hasClass("followOpened")?(e(this).removeClass("followActive"),o.removeClass("followOpened").stop().animate({bottom:t},{duration:300,easing:"easeOutCubic"})):(e(this).addClass("followActive"),o.addClass("followOpened").stop().animate({bottom:"0"},{duration:500,easing:"easeOutCubic"})),a.preventDefault()})})}(jQuery);
/*]]>*/
</script> 

 Once everything is done, press Save Template button present at the very top of your screen.

Now to make the widget appear on your blog, you have to also add the HTML Codes of this widget. Go to Blogger >> Layout >> Add a Gadget >> Add HTML/JavaScript and paste the following code in the HTML box.

<div id="arlinafollowSubscribe" style="bottom: -971px;">
  <div class="arlinafollowForm">
    <a class="arlinafollowButton" href="#" title="Follow"><b>+ Follow</b></a>
    <br />
    <a href="http://www.Blogger.com/follow-blog.g?blogID=7342017194742683056" title="join this site" onclick="window.open(this.href, 'dmfollow', 'toolbar=0,location=0,statusbar=1,menubar=0,scrollbars=no,width=599,height=521');return false;" style="text-align:center;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;"><img src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-HViEx99kxmQ/VyPMrPGAvEI/AAAAAAAAD7M/bWz5CKpHrHkxtVdgL0z-xJQa_nA_tK0gACLcB/s1600/Follower.png" alt="Join on this site" /></a>
    <br />
    <p>with Google Friend Connect</p>
  </div>
</div>

After pasting the above code in the text box, you need to replace the blogID i.e. 7342017194742683056 with your blog's ID. You can see this tutorial on how to find your Blog ID in Blogger. After replacing the blog ID, save the widget by pressing Save widget button.
