One of the most important aspects to consider in blog design is having well thought out social media icons. You want them to be easily accessible (above the fold) and large without being distracting. The most important thing is that you test all of your links and ensure that they go to the appropriate social network!
I have created 4 sets of social media icons. Each set includes Facebook, Twitter, RSS, Etsy, Pinterest, E-mail, and Instagram. Each icon is a 50×50 PNG file.
To download simply click the color below:
Not sure how to install your spiffy new social media icons? After you download the icons from above you will need to upload them to a photo share site (such as Photobucket). Next, go to the html/text widget where you would like to put the icons and enter this code:
Change the YOURWEBSITEHERE to the location you want the icon to go– Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest account etc. Change the IMAGEURL to the location of the image on your share site.
Each social icon will need it’s own code, so if you are using all 7 icons, you will need to enter/edit the above code 7 times. (FYI- All 7 lines of code can go in the same text/html widget.) Make sense?
Please comment below if you have any questions and I will try to help. Also comment if you use the Free Social Media Icons, I would love to see them in action!
