How To: Get a "Back To Top" button on blogger

Every now and again I'll decide that I fancy changing something about my blog, this time I fancied adding a "Back To Top" button as I thought this would be very useful on my particular template.

Without any thought of how to install a button I created my own and then came to the difficult part of needing to install it. I created my button on PicMonkey which, after PhotoShop, is my favourite editing programme and super easy to use. This is the button I created:

(When creating my button I did make sure that it had a transparent background.)

After making, or choosing, your button you must make sure it has it's own URL to add to the HTML, so I just created a blog post with the picture in, published that post, right-clicked the image to open it in a new tab and then copied the link into the HTML (and then deleted the post). 
That HTML is:

<!--Smooth Back to Top Button Start-->
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
var offset = 220;
var duration = 500;
jQuery(window).scroll(function() {
if (jQuery(this).scrollTop() > offset) {
} else {
jQuery('.back-to-top').click(function(event) {
jQuery('html, body').animate({scrollTop: 0}, duration);
return false;
div#page {
max-width: 900px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
padding: 20px;
.back-to-top {
position: fixed;
bottom: 2em;
right: 0px;
text-decoration: none;
color: #7be7b6;
font-size: 12px;
padding: 1em;
display: none;
.back-to-top:hover {
text-decoration: none;
<a href="#" class="back-to-top"><img src="Insert URL" / /></a>
<!--Smooth Back to Top Button End-->

To add your own button you will want to delete the pink text and paste your own URL in it's place!
And that is it, I feel as though it sounded more complicated than it is, but if I can do it, you can do it, trust me!
