Have you ever visited an art blog where the basic comment tagline was replaced with something cute like, “12 Birdies Tweeted” or “5 Painters Said” or “7 Lovely Readers Wrote” and wondered how they did that?

Below are 4 simple steps for personalizing your comment tagline.

Step 1: Sign into your blog

Go to blogger.com, enter your username and password, and click sign in.

Step 3: Change your comment tag
