Blog Talk Tuesday: Make Your Blog Printer Friendly!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013



Whether you are on Wordpress or Blogger, you need to go here to get your 'Print Button' before we can start anything! For all the people who asked about Wordpress tutorials on last week's post, I'm doing a Wordpress one today too! Yay! Anyways, I'll explain blogger blogs first because that's what I have!



Adding this on Blogger is SUPER easy! Now for Wordpress! It's a little more work, but overall easy. (If I can figure it out then I know you can!)





 In the popup window enter:
  • Service name: Print & PDF
  • Sharing URL: http://www.printfriendly.com/print?url=%post_full_url%
  • Icon URL: http://cdn.printfriendly.com/icon-print-friendly-16x16.png
  • Click "Create Share"


Now your blog is printer friendly! I love easy little things like this that I never would have thought to do! It makes the blog so much easier to navigate!

Are you trying to improve your blog?
What have you learned while blogging?

What do you want to improve?

    1. I am SO not tech savvy! There's so many things I have no idea how to do! When I finally figure something out, it's fun to share it in ENGLISH (not tech talk!)!

  2. This is so helpful! I am constantly trying to update/improve my blog, there's so much to learn! just when i think i've got a pretty good idea of what i'm doing, inevitably someone's like "oh well do you have ___ on your blog" and im like "ahhh what is that amazing thing?! i need it!" sigh.

  8. I would love to have a fancy schmancy blog with all the horns and whistles..but I am wayyy too lazy to figure it all out and have continued using the basic formats for two years hahah! Maybe one day my blog will look different than the rest! Great work on yours, and I will have to remember this when I want to set up printing!

    1. Seeing as a TON of my blog posts revolve around Peanut Butter and bananas, I can understand why this reminded you of me :)

      Can you believe Bethie is getting married in less than 3 months? Maybe once she's not so busy, she'll start her blog up again! I was loving it!
