Blogger launched it’s official version of the Contact Form Widget but, it works only on the Blogger Sidebar. If you don’t want to add the contact form to your Blog’s sidebar but want it to appear on a specific page, then this tutorial will help you out. I didn’t want the contact form to appear every where on my blog. So I have moved it to a separate Contact Me Page
