3. Save and view your blog. If you wish the floating share button to appear at the right hand side of your blog, find left:10px; in the code and change to right:10px;. You can also change the background color from white in my code to any color of your choice by finding background-color:#ffffff; and change #ffffff to whatever color code you wish.

You can see my floating share Button at the left side of this blog.
