A cool feature to add in your site is a bubble button, and this CSS3 animated button tutorial comes from web developer Nagu Akkina . The effect here is when you hover your mouse over the buttons, you will see bubble movements in it. However, the effects are only visible to browsers that support CSS3.

Here’s a live DEMO of his work.

Below are the following steps Nagu demonstrates on how you can add bubble buttons:

  1. Go to your Blogger Dashboard > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Make a backup first before doing any changes to your blog
  3. Expand Widget Templates
  4. Find this code (hit ctrl+F on your keyboard)
