3D YouTube Logo ImageYou may have noticed I’m back making some video tutorials and the last few posts on Spice Up Your Blog  have included videos.Over the last few months i have been making videos for an Ebook I’m working on so had been slacking off on creating tutorials to go with the posts here.The videos i create for Spice Up Your Blog i host on YouTube and then Embed within the posts.You may do the same thing on your blog, if you do you may also like to promote Your YouTube channel on your blog.With that in mind in this post i will show you how you can add a very cool YouTube Subscribe widget to your Blogger or WordPress blog.

The widget is very user friendly and like the Facebook Fan Page / Like Page widget users can subscribe to your channel without the need to leave the page.You channels image thumbnail, Username, Number of videos and Number of subscribers are displayed along with the YouTube logo.You can also change the width and height of the gadget.

  1. This is something I had considered adding to my redesigned look on my blog, but since I don’t have any videos yet, I put it off. But it is something I have planned for down the road. When that time comes, I’ll be sure to revisit this post. Thanks for yet another great tip.
