Welcome to BlogSpot tutorials! In this BlogSpot tutorial, we will create contact us page in blogger blog. We will first add the contact form gadget, hide it through CSS code, and create contact us page.

You can communicate with your audience as a blogger through comments sections etc. Another way through which a blogger can communicate with readers is through contact us page. Communicating through contact form is direct and confidential.  

If your audience read an article from your blog site and in the event that they don’t understand anything they may wish to contact you. The best way to do that is through the contact us page. Google owns the blogger platform and hence it is automatically connected to your Gmail account. If someone writes a message and hits the send button, you will receive the message right in your Gmail inbox.

It is not only your blog readers that might reach you through “Contact Us” form, advertisers, sponsors, also use contact form to get in touch with you. Google AdSense, other quality ad networks, and affiliate marketplaces won’t approve you to join them if you don’t have an “About Us”, “Contact Us” and “Privacy Policy” pages. So make sure you create these pages as soon as you start your blog.

BlogSpot users can use a contact form in their gadgets or widgets, but you cannot add them to the pages. This is a problem for newbies. In this tutorial, as I have stated above, I’ll help you to create a contact us page and add a contact form in your BlogSpot blog. Blogger Gadgets section has an official contact us gadget, but you cannot use it on any of your pages. It’s only accessible through sidebars. Follow this tutorial below to customize it for using it on pages.

Adding a contact us form in Blogger is a wearisome undertaking as it does not sustain plugins like WordPress. Nevertheless, today, you are going to learn how to add the official contact us page in Blogger.
