Adding a Customized Blockquote to a Blogger Blog

Blockquotes are basically used to add effect to stuffs (e.g. scripts, CSS codes, HTML codes, a quote, etc.) on your post to help differentiate certain texts in the post which you want to lay more emphasis on from the others. It is used in some tech blogs to enclose certain codes and scripts while in other blogs, it is sometimes used to display quotes from favorite authors or a sentence copied from another web page or article.

I guess you might have seen it in action in most of the tech blogs but don’t know how to make use of it in your own blog. Today I am going to show you guys how to create a custom blockquote which will be unique to your blog. All you need to do is follow the steps below;

  • Login to your Blogger Dashboard.
  • Go to Template >>> Edit HTML.
  • Click anywhere inside the Edit HTML box and search for ]]></b:skin> using Ctrl + F.
  • Copy the below CSS code and paste just above ]]></b:skin>.
.post-body blockquote {

line-height: 1.3em;


.post blockquote {




margin: 0 20px;

border-top: 1px solid #DDD;

border-right: 1px solid #666;

border-left: 1px solid #DDD;

border-bottom: 1px solid #666;

padding: 20px 20px 20px 50px;


font: normal 0.9em "Consolas", "Courier New", Courier, mono, serif;;

-webkit-border-radius: 20px;-moz-border-radius: 20px;border-radius: 20px;

-webkit-transition:all .3s ease-in-out;-moz-transition:all .3s ease-in-out;-o-transition-duration:all .3s ease-in-out;transition:all .3s ease-in-out;-webkit-border-radius:3px;-moz-border-radius:3px;border-radius:3px;


.post blockquote:hover {




box-shadow: -1px -1px 12px 2px gainsboro;

border-radius: 15px;


.post blockquote p {

margin: 0;

padding-top: 10px;


Changes to Make:

To make sure that the blockquote will be unique to your blog alone, create a unique image which you want to use as the background image for the blockquote and upload to blogger or host it on any other image hosting site, then copy the URL and paste in the CSS code above to replace BLOCKQUOTE BACKGROUND IMAGE URL.

  • Finally Save Template and you are done.

Note: To use the blockquote in your post, just switch to the HTML mode when composing the post and add <blockquote> at the start of the texts/codes you wish to enclose inside the blockquote and finally add </blockquote> at the end of the texts/codes.

The blockquote here can be used on any Blogger blog but if you are running a tech blog that and need a numbered blockquote to use in sharing CSS, HTML, and other scripts, then you should check my post titled Simple Numbered Blockquote For Blogger and Website.
