How to add the feedly button

In an age without Google Reader bloggers alike have had to seek out new ways for their readers to connect with them. Feedly is a great option, and my personal favorite. The only bad thing is that their method of linking to a blog's feedly feed is difficult. You would think that with their widget maker this task would be easy. That, however, is not the case with the way their url is done.

I've played around with this, and after clicking on another blog's feedly button, I was able to snatch that url, and plug it in to the widget. In short, it works.

Step 1- This is the Feedly cloud url. Copy the code in blue, and paste it into a word document.

The whole link is useful if you want to check to see if your url is working correctly with Feedly. But, for the button, we only need a small section of the url.

Step 2- Replace the underlined part with your blog's url

Step 3- Copy the link, and carry that url on over to the Feedly button maker site, and use that for Step 2 on the website

And once you follow their instructions, you should be good to go! Simple as that =)
Hope this tutorial was easy enough.
