Adding an etsy mini to your blogger blog

What's an etsy mini? It's like a little treasury, but it only contains your etsy items. You can also make one with your etsy favorites by other sellers. I have one on this blog, it's in the box titled "My creations for sale".

Go to and sign in. Click on "Your etsy" on the top of the page. On the left hand side click "Etsy Mini" (it's under Promote). Click "Items from my shop" and then "Thumbnail" or "Gallery". Choose layout (I think most people go with the default).

Scroll down to where it says "Copy this code for the javascript version" and copy the code that's in the box.

Then sign into your blogger/blogspot account. Click "Layout". You'll see on the right side a link in a little box saying "Add a Gadget". Click that. A window should pop up.

Click "HTML/JavaScript" which is the 4th one down. You can add a title like "My Etsy Store" or leave it blank. Paste the code that you copies earlier into the "Content" part.

Click Save. The pop up window should close and you'll be back to your layout page.

Important: Now click the big orange "save button".

Under the "Add a Gadget" link you'll now see a box that says HTML/JavaScript. That's your etsy mini.

Hope this helps!


  1. I don't have Etsy, but I did add a link to Link Within which reruns (suggests) old posts! to my blog!

  2. yay technology! I'm not sure if I want people to see my old posts, there's a lot of rambling going on in those :)

  3. This is a great tutorial, next time someone asks me how to add a mini, I'll refer them here, you explain it really well!
