How to Add A Comment Count Bubble To Blogger Post Titles

A comment bubble (or speech balloon) with the current number of comments displayed on each blogger post titles might be an excellent addition if you want to make your blog more attractive and engaging. Having a comment bubble icon could help you not only to get more comments on your blog but may, as well, give your visitors a hint about which are the most popular posts on your blog. When a post has received many comments, it could reflect the popularity of your posts and thus, make your readers and visitors to be more interested in reading them.
If you want to add a comment or speech bubble to your Blogger blog, then follow the next steps below:


Step 1. Log in to your Blogger Dashboard > go to Template > click the Edit HTML button

Step 2. Click anywhere inside the code area and press the CTRL + F keys to open the Blogger search box
blogger search box

Step 3. Find the following tag in your template:
]]></b:skin>
Note: before anything, you need to click on the small arrow next to it and after the code has expanded, search for the ]]></b:skin> tag again

Step 4. Just above ]]></b:skin> add the following CSS styling:
.comment-bubble {
float : right;
width : 48px;
height : 48px;
background : url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-7FFIKA34Kvw/T4x9E0RmA0I/AAAAAAAAALI/03AG305CesI/s1600/speech+bubble+green.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
font-size : 18px;
margin-top : -15px;
margin-right : 2px;
text-align : center;
}
Step 5. Now find this code:
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
<h3 class='post-title entry-title'>
Note: If you can't find it, search this code instead:
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
      <h3 class='post-title entry-title' itemprop='name'>
Step 6. And add this code immediately after it:
<b:if cond='data:post.allowComments'>
<a class='comment-bubble' expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick' style='color: #ffffff; font-size: 18px; font-weight: bold;'><data:post.numComments/></a>
</b:if>
Note:
  • to change the color of the comments number, replace #ffffff with the hex value of your color;
  • to change the font size, increase/decrease the 18px value;
Step 7. Preview your template and if everything is ok, click on Save Template.

    1. Man, I played with this for awhile just to figure out how to center the number. OK, here is the solution. In the last code, after:

      font-weight: bold;

      Add this line right after it:

      text-align: center; line-height: 23px;

      Adjust the number according to your images. That'll should work.
