How to Add a Floating Twitter “Follow Me” Badge on WordPress Blog?


I’ve joined Twitter since January last year but I didn’t care much about getting people to follow my Twitter (and I didn’t follow other people either), not until recently. Now, I am trying to follow interesting people on Twitter and in the mean time, try to get my readers (Yes, you!) to follow me on Twitter. As you can see, I’ve put a large “Follow Me on Twitter” badge at the bottom of my every single blog post. Somehow, I think that placing the badge at the bottom isn’t a good idea. It can easily go unnoticed by some of my readers. Moreover, I don’t see the badge on my front page.

That’s why I’ve decided to add another Twitter “Follow Me” badge, now at the right side of my blog, it’s actually a floating Twitter “Follow Me” badge. By doing so, this badge is more visible to the readers and hopefully can increase the number of followers on my Twitter.
