How To Hide Blog Archive Widget From Showing On Blogger Website

The Blogger "Blog Archive" widget makes it easy for visitors to navigate Blogspot blogs with links to older posts. It organizes your previously published posts by month week or day, which can be handy for readers who want to browse your older content.

When you create a new blog on Blogspot platform, the blog archive widget displays on all pages of the desktop and mobile views of the blog by default. If you don't want it to display, you can easily delete it.


Sign in to your Blogger dashboard at

Click on "Layout"

Scroll down to the section where you have the "Blog Archive" widget

Click on "Edit"
Click "Remove"

Click on "Save Arrangement"

That's all.

If you prefer to just hide it without deleting it, you can use css to get that done. All you need is the widget ID of the blog archive widget.

For example, if the id of my blog archive widget is BlogArchive1, I will add the css code below to my blog's html if I want to hide the widget from displaying on my blog without deleting it :

#BlogArchive1 {
display : none;

I hope this helps.

NB : It's highly recommended you have a blog archive widget or page on your blog.

Why Blogging Is Better Than A Paid Job

Everyone need a job in order to pay bills. There are so many kind of jobs that can fetch you money either online or offline. Blogging is one of the most popular online venture for now.

There are so many blogs currently in the blogosphere. And each day new blogs are created. Many of these blogs are created for personal use, while others are for money making purpose.

Today, blogging is paying the bills of so many bloggers. Some bloggers are buying houses, cars and others investing on other businesses from the money they earn from blogging.

Blogging is not an online get rich quick scheme. A lot of sacrifices are involved. Passion, dedication, commitment and investing financially is a must for one to reap the benefits of blogging.

Why Blogging Pays

Unlike other offline jobs, blogging can be better off as you don't need to be in a particular location everyday to work. You can be in the comfort of your living room, in an hotel or even in a friend's
house and be updating your blog. It is left for you to decide if you wish to wake up as early as 5am or sleep till 10am. This is because you are your own boss. You are living a life of freedom, a stress free
life. You have no fear of receiving a sack letter.

Proximity doesn't affect blogging. Take for example, war broke out in your country or  political or religious crisis in your state, you can simply relocate and continue blogging.  Changing location won't affect your earnings as long there is internet connection. It won't not affect your traffic too as long your visitors are from everywhere.

There is no fix amount of money you earn in a month. It all depends on how smart you work. Today in Nigeria, it hard to find a job where a graduate earns N200,000 per month on entry level. But there are bloggers without a university degree earning up to N500,000 per month and there are some earning more than that.

For those who love fame, blogging can make you popular. And the more famous you are as a blogger the higher the chances of making more money. You can get an endorsement from big brands. They will also pay you to promote their product or services.

You can take a break or go on vacation while your blog still send money to your bank account. There are so many blogs that have been left dormant for months and yet the owners still earn from it.

Apart from your data subscription and yearly domain renewal or hosting, you may not need to spend much as compare to other location based jobs where you pay daily for transportation or fuel your vehicle.

I am quite sure many will agree with me blogging is better but if only one get it right.

Some have quit their jobs and decided to take blogging as a profession. The risk taking is left for you.

No risk no reward.

Any addition or subtraction? Over to you....
