The following tutorials will be guiding you how to add a contact form to your blog on a specific page. Having a contact form is very important as it can serve as a communication tool for your visitors or customers to reach you. Instead of asking your visitors to contact you via email, they can use the contact form to reach you directly. Blogger now offer a new contact form widget and with only a few tweaks, you can put the contact form on a specific page instead of on the sidebar which is not so ideal.
