First of all you need to add jquery library and fontawesome script into your template. Most of the modern templates are includes those scripts by default. So, please check before adding them, if they exist in your template design please ignore this step otherwise you might be face some errors in near future.

# Open Template tab in your blogger dashboard and click on Edit HTML.

# Find <head> tag and include following codes below <head>.

<script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

Make sure you have added jquery and fontawesome script into your template before going deep into the installation process. If your template have updated version of jquery or fontawesome than you don't have to add older version that I mention here. Your widget will work fine with updated version. But if you have older version of any of those scripts than kindly update them with my version to avoid errors.
