<div align="left"> Your Name: </div>
<br />
<div align="left"><input class=" contact-form-name="" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-name" name="name" size="30" type="text" value=""></div>
<br />
<div align="left">Your Email:
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bolder;">*</span></div>
<br />
<div align="left"><input class="contact-form-email" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email" name="email" size="30" type="text" value="" /></div>
<br />
<div align="left">Your Message:
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bolder;">*</span></div>
<br />
<div align="left"><textarea class="contact-form-email-message" cols="25" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email-message" name="email-message" rows="5"></textarea></div>
<br /><br />
<div align="left"><input class="contact-form-button contact-form-button-submit" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-submit" type="button" value="Send" /></div>


<div style="max-width: 222px; text-align: center; width: 100%;">
<div class="contact-form-error-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-error-message">
</div>
<div class="contact-form-success-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-success-message">
</div>
</div>
</form>
</div>

NOTE: 

Since this is a contact us page, we do not want users to be able to comment on this page ideally. So disable comment on this page. To do so, click on "Options" on the right hand sidebar and disable comments.

  • Publish your page.

  • The Blogger Contact Us page is ready for use.

  • Test it by sending a message.

 

 You can also replace the * with text such as "(requried)" in the HTML code.

Enjoy blogging!
