4. Customize the values in CSS according to your desire. These customizations are optional. If you leave it as it is, then the bar will be styled on your blog as it is shown in demo. If you are willing to customize the appearance of the bar, modify the most common features by modifying highlighted values keeping the below rules in your mind:

#7C0625; is the color code for background of your bar.
Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; defines the font style for text in links.
960px defines the width of your footer bar
#ffffff; defines the color the bar when it turns into on hovering the mouse pointer.
Generate Hex Code of Your Favorite Color
There are much more customizations but these are the most basic which defines the appearance of your sticky bar. 
5.Now save your template and go to your blog’s layout and add a gadget anywhere by selecting HTML/Java Script and paste the below code in it
<div align="center" id="stickey_footer">

<!– begin footer menu –>

<ul id="footer_menu">
<li><a href='Your Home Page URL'><img src='https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-kcihCADdgGY/UREJRPvmkGI/AAAAAAAAC0g/ZMCj2c4hHSA/s128/home.png' alt=""/></a></li>

<li><a href="#">Link Label</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Link Label</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Link Label</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Link Label</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Link Label</a></li>

</ul>

<ul id="social_icons">

<!–social icons –>

<li><a href="http://twitter.com/TwitterUserName" ><img src='https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-nResr2lIVyA/UREeVDxzhCI/AAAAAAAAC2s/UWWxEnU_reQ/h120/twitter.png' alt="" /><span>Twitter</span></a></li>

<li><a href="https://plus.google.com/GooglePlusUserName"><img src='https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-sCUPl7F89So/UREL42sRFxI/AAAAAAAAC1A/Inw683fCKs8/h120/google-plus.png' alt="" /><span>Flickr</span></a></li>

<li><a href="http://facebook.com/FBUserName" ><img src='https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qr8L5IEyL3Q/UREeTBv5gmI/AAAAAAAAC2U/PrUonHcTXU4/h120/facebook.png' alt="" /><span>Facebook</span></a></li>

</!–social></ul>

 </!–></div>
Add your custom links in the code by replacing the highlighted values and save your gadget. Your all done!For further customizations, if you don't need link to any social profile, simple remove its link starting from <li> and ending at </li>. For example if you want to remove the link and icon for Digg, remove it by removing its link which is <li><a href="http://digg.com/DiggUserName" ><img src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s8zEJZ_OcnQ/T9rfIcRCDcI/AAAAAAAAFZ8/I34iNs4r-HU/s1600/digg.png' alt="" /><span>Digg</span></a></li>
