Sign in Your Blogger Account
Go To " Dashboard "
Click on " Design "






Select a HTML/JavaScript Widget just under the header and paste the following code inside it,


Here is " Html Code "
    <div id='mbtnavbar'>
          <ul id='mbtnav'>
            <li>
              <a href='#'>Home</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href='#'>About</a>
           </li>
            <li>
              <a href='#'>Contact</a>
            </li>
      <li>
               <a href='#'>Sitemap</a>

                <ul>
