I decided to see if I could get some extra donations through my blog, not ever so hopeful, but I thought it was worth a go, so I created a HTML gadget on my blog, which would show a picture of me and my Mo and provide a link to donate to Movember, on the top right.
Firstly a BIG thank you to those people who did donate, I really wasn't expecting any and those that did donate where fantastically generous.
So to create a HTML gadget in blogger:
- login to the admin bit of blogger
- click layout on the left hand menu
- click "Add a gadget" where you want the gadget to go
- Click on the +
- Give your gadget a title, in my case "Movember"

</a><div style="font-style:italic;">"Im not growing this for fun!"<br /></div>
<div>If everyone who visited my blog in November donated 10p, we would raise over £1000<br /></div>
<div>So maybe if you have found something useful today, and maybe Ive helped you solve a problem, why not <a href="http://mobro.co/martinohanlon">donate 10p</a> to raise vital funds for men’s health</div>
- Click save and that's it, a lovely new custom made gadget on your blog
Its never too late to donate to Movember - http://mobro.co/martinohanlon
