Create a Signature For Your Blog Posts Using My Live Signature

The very basic steps to use My Live Signature are simple. In addition to the below video tutorial, here are the steps you’ll need to follow:

  1. Create a signature at My Live Signature: http://www.mylivesignature.com/ (You could use PicMonkey or any photo editing service, but this seemed quickest). Click “start now” and then use the signature creation wizard to develop a signature in your own style.
  2. Save the finished signature image to your computer.
  3. Upload your signature image to photobucket.
  4. Go to your plugins dashboard and add/activate the  “Add Signature” plugin.
  5. Go to settings to edit the “MVP Add Signature”.
  6. Copy the html code from the signature image you uploaded to Photobucket.
  7. Paste the code into the first signature line.
  8. Select where you’d like your signature to show up.
  9. Save!

It’s that easy, but I’ll admit watching this quick video to see exactly how it’s done will make it seem that much more manageable! Take a look:
