Creating a Feedburner RSS chicklet

This is the second post in the Feedburner Series.  In the previous post, we have created a Feedburner RSS feed account. In this post, we are going to create a chicklet or an icon where our readers can subscribe using an RSS feed.

Instructions in Creating a Feedburner RSS Chicklet

1.) Log in to Google and go to feedburner.google.com to go to the window containing the list of your feeds.

2.) We only have one feed in our example as shown above. Click the title of your feed to go the Feed Stats Dashboard.

 

3.) In your Feed Stats Dashboard, select the Publicize tab, and then select Chicklet Chooser.

4.) In the Chicklet Chooser page, choose your standard RSS icon as shown below and copy the HTML code below the page.

 

5.) Paste the code in your text widget or any part of the blog where you want the chicklet to appear.
