I honestly do not consider myself much of an expert with all of those backslashes and brackets and quotation marks all mixed in with "a href=" and "img src=" ... etc, etc. It actually gives me quite a headache. Most of the time, I'm able to avoid the headache by simply typing my desired goal into Google and benefiting from the fruits of other people's HTML knowledge.
However, I found myself hitting a search engine wall when I decided that I wanted to have a "post gallery for my sidebar using Blogger" (I'm putting that all within quotation marks because that's exactly how I googled it). Most results mentioned using the pre-designed widget that Blogger already offers. Unfortunately, that was not the look I was going for. I wanted my gallery to fit snuggly in my sidebar, with images paired together in rows of two. Is that too much to ask for?? Apparently so...
If your answer to the question pictured above is ABSOLUTELY (or just "yes", I'll take a simple answer too) then head on over to Cropped Stories where I've shared all the necessary steps.
I hope this tutorial proves helpful! If so, I'd love for you to share and pin so that others don't have to go through the same headache I went through trying to figure out how to make a pretty gallery for my sidebar.
If you use Blogger, do you know of another way to create a sidebar gallery? If so, please feel free to share in the comments section! Also, if you have any questions or something doesn't work quite right, just let me know in the comments section or send me an email:
