How to add a badge of the Internet Defense League to a Blogger blog

Due to the latest PRISM shenanigans, the Internet has joined its forces again to fight for humanity (you can read about it here, for example). I wanted to contribute, and I though this blog was a nice place to start, with the Internet Defense League badge!




I went out to search for a way to add this badge to this Blogger blog. However, I didn't find an easy way to do it without modifying the template, which looked kind of complicated for what it should be a simple task. 

So, I got down to it, and created a Google Gadget for this task, which you can find on my idl-gadget-for-blogger repo at GitHub.  Now, you can use this badge in Blogger in a few easy steps!

If you want to do add this badge to your Blogger blog, just follow these steps:

  • Go to Blogger and select your blog.
  • Go to Layout
  • Click on "Add a Gadget"
  • On the window that appears, click on "Add your own"
  • On the URL field, enter `http://mparramont.github.io/idl-gadget-for-blogger/idl.xml` (without the `s)

And you're done! Just go back to your blog and the badge should appear now.

As the IDL says, "Make sure the internet never loses. Ever." :D
