How to Add a Floating, Fade In Gadget to Your Blog

Today's tutorial was prompted by a question I received in my advice column contact form. :) It read:

I LOVE everything that you did with Ingrid's blog,! When you scroll down, that tabs bar up top pops up is the bomb. Could you please do a tutorial on how to code it?? I have some web designer friends, so don't be afraid to "speak code" as they will explain it to me haha <33

This tutorial is going to be on how to create a floating, fade in gadget (specifically a Blogger pagelist). Let's get started. :)

The instructions.

  1. Select the blog you want to edit.
  2. Make sure you have a pagelist gadget installed on your blog.
  3. Install the following codes to your template.
  4. Save and view your changes.


<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
// hide #mbz-sidebar-widget first
// fade in #mbz-sidebar-widget
$(function () {
$(window).scroll(function () {
if ($(this).scrollTop() &gt; 200) {
} else {

Place this code above the "</body>"  section in the HTML of your template.


#PageList1 { position: fixed;
top: -30px;
left: 0px;
padding-left: 30px;
width: 100%;
z-index: 9;
background-color: white;
height: 55px;
line-height: 35px;
text-transform: uppercase;
box-shadow: 2px 2px 3px #eee;

display: none; }

#PageList1 a { font-family: 'Raleway', sans-serif;
line-height: 3; }

Go to Template >>> Customize >>> Add CSS and paste this code in box.

Easy peasy, right? :)

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…
