Add Star Rating The Blogger Way

In this post I will show you how to create a star rating for visitors to rate your blog post's. This is not the way I have currently on my blog, but this is the easiest way and might be good enough for you needs. With this method you use blogger's own star rating. To get to it, you need to get to blogger in draft-- -- or simply replace the "www" portion of the URL, if your currently logged into blogger, and replace it with "draft".

Click Enter or whatever you do to go from site to site after your type the URL ordinarily.

While in draft go to layout and click to edit the post section:

This will pull up this screen:

Click where I clicked in the picture to choose "Show Star Ratings".

Believe it or not, that's it. You now have your own star ratings that will show below posts. Next time I show you star ratings, I will show you a more advanced 3rd part method that in my opinion looks nicer and gives you stats on where someone is clicking from, and other cool extras. But, if you're not worried about the extras, this will be good enough.
