Add Elegant Blogger Contact Form to Static Page

In the previous years, people from the web would prefer to contact a Blogger blog owner by manually sending them an email messages, since bloggers always make a contact us page to their blog having their main email address attached to it. Things were changed after Google Blogger released its official contact form. Since then, communicating with bloggers for asking questions, requests and advertising made easy and it invited blog’s visitors to speak what’s on their mind.

The idea of having a Blogger contact form on our blog is to check what information we want to receive from senders. An example for this is to require them to enter their name, email-address and subject matter of the message. With that we can easily track the messages coming from our visitors. Also, by using a Blogger contact form for our blog we can eliminate being scanned on the web and receive spam messages.

After Blogger launched its new contact form widget, many bloggers asking if there is a way they could embed the contact form on a specific page. And absolutely yes, there is a way and that was the main topic of this page. We will embed the default contact form on static page on our Blogger blog.
