How To Create An Awesome Personalized Signature For Your Blog Posts & Emails (No High-Tech Skills or Programs Required!)

How To Create A Personalized Signature For Your Blog Posts + Emails


Fellow bloggers along with St. Google and his close friend, Sister YouTube, have been incredibly helpful to me in finding my way around this foreign land called blogging. I always appreciate it when fellow bloggers pull back the curtain and share their tips and advice with me on how to be a successful blogger and freelancer. I feel like so much of this field is shrouded in mystery and finding these helpful posts is like finding gold.

Given that I find this information so helpful, I want to give back, too. In my mind, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been blogging for 4 days, 4 years, or just shy of 4 months (like me), everyone has some knowledge to share that someone else may not know. In this spirit, I’m going to kick-off what will be an ongoing series or topic area discussed on WHOLEistically Fit, blogging.

For non-bloggers out there, don’t worry, I’ll still be bringing you great content on topics such as healthy recipes, workouts, relationship tips, spirituality, etc. This will just be a little something extra for my fellow bloggers out there.

I’m starting the series off with a how-to tutorial on creating an awesome, personalized signature for your blog posts and emails. The great thing about this topic is that it actually applies to everybody, not just bloggers! It’s a great way to spruce up your work email signature or the signature you use on emails when applying to jobs.

The best part is that it is super quick and easy to do, and it’s 100% free. You don’t need any high-tech skills or fancy (and expensive) computer programs.

  3. Thank you so much!! That was one of the easiest tutorials on how to do something technical online that I have ever done! I really appreciate your help.

    • So glad to hear it!! You’re very welcome – it was my pleasure to share and my way of paying it forward. :D

  4. Hey Ali!
    Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial It is very simple and easy to use which is great because I’m not that good at HTML codes and all that stuff. I just had one question, I installed my signature at the bottom of a post but I have a Pin it button on all the pictures on my blog that appears when you roll your mouse over them and I was just wondering if you knew of a way I could install a signature without the Pin It button appearing on it? Any help you could give me would be great! Thanks!

    • Hey Grace!
      So glad you found the tutorial simple & easy! Hmm… that’s a really good question. And, to be honest, I’m really not sure. I’ve never used the Pin It button roll-over feature, so I don’t know how to disable it on certain images. If any one else knows, please chime in! I’m so sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

  5. Thank you for the great tip, Ali! This was so helpful–I had no idea it was so easy to create a custom signature! I just made one for my new blog ( and it took less than five minutes. Thank you, thank you–you are the best!!!

    • Thank you so much!! You totally made my day. :D So happy you found this helpful. I scoped out your new signature and it looks fabulous! Love, love, love it!

  6. I apologize..I didn’t think my comment posted… so I pressed post comment a few times. I apologize for the duplicate comments. Thank you for your advice. I read your reply above and I will try to match the background color. Thanks again!

    • No worries! :D I’m crossing my fingers that it works for you! Please come back and let us know. :)

  7. Fantastic! Thank you so much for the step-by-step instructions. It never ceases to amaze me the new ideas I learn everyday to improve my blog.

    • Thanks, Kate. I’m so glad you found the step-by-step instructions helpful. I always love learning new ideas to improve my blog as well and am so happy to pay it forward in some way. :)

    • Hey Catherine, awesome! I’m so glad you found the tutorial so easy to follow and thanks so much for linking to it on your website! :D

  9. I am having a problem and was wondering if you could help. I created the signature, and pasted it in the correct place. However, my blog background is a pinkish color and you can see the white box around the signature. Do you know how to fix this so that it is just the signature without the white box?

    • Hi Jenn, try this: when you are on step #7 of my tutorial, input the color code that matches that of your blog background where it says, “Click to change the background color”. I think that should hopefully resolve the issue. If not, you could always try to contact MyLiveSignature on their contact page: It looks like they are also on facebook and twitter, so you could try contacting them that way as well. Sorry about the issue! Please come back and let us all know how you are able to resolve it. :)

    • In blogger, head to Template, Customize, Advanced and then Add CSS. Copy this into the box: .post-body img, .post-body .tr-caption-container, .Profile img, .Image img,
      .BlogList .item-thumbnail img {
      padding: none !important;
      border: none !important;
      background: none !important;
      -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;
      -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;
      box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px transparent !important;

      Pres enter after the } and apply to blog. It will work!

      • Thank you Lindsey!! I just found this post and tried to change my signature, but was so disappointed when I saw the shadowbox. So happy I read through these comments and found your code…quick and easy! Thanks for sharing:)

        • Yay, so glad Lindsey’s input helped and that you were able to make your signature after all! Thanks again, Lindsey! :D

    • Thank you so much! I had always wondered that myself and that’s precisely why I wanted to share the info. So happy you found this helpful. Let me know how your signature turns out! :D

  12. Thank you SO much for showing us how to do this. I can’t wait to give it a try! I’m no techie at all (as you will be able to tell from my blog) so all tips are very gratefully received. My blog design is in serious need of a spruce up. I’ll see if I can start with a cute signature ;)

    • You’re so welcome! :D I am 100% with you on the lack of tech skills when it comes to blogging. I put off the whole personalized signature thing for a long time because I imagined it would be super complicated. When I finally bit the bullet and looked into it, I was so happy to find this simple-to-use and free program! I can’t wait to see your new spiffy signature! :D

    • I’m so glad you found this helpful! Good call on not dishing out the dough for one when you got your blog makeover. Now you can easily and freely make your own. :D
