I know, not a big deal for some, but I have been jealous of other people’s for a while, and finally decided to figure out how to do them myself.

And it wasn’t as hard as I was anticipating and if I can do it, so can you!

So, if you have a blog, and would like to add social media buttons to your site, here is what I used. . .

Olivia at My Favourite Things wrote a post on How To: Add Social Media Icons to Your Blog. I pretty much followed her directions.

Step 1 is to get a set of buttons and I just Google image searched “Free Pink Social Media Buttons” and found a set that I liked and kindly asked Amarie (at TMW graphics & designs) to send me the files.

The only other thing I found was with email. . . I had to make a few adjustments to the HTML code. . . so use this one. . .
–> To link to email, fill in the “Your Website Address” like this,
”mailto:running4cupcakes@gmail.com”

Also, her directions are for blogger. .  . for WordPress. . . it is pretty easy. Just go to your ‘dashbboard.’ Under Appearance –> widgets –> text box –> that’s where you will enter the HTML code.

And now it is super easy to make sure you are following me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!! Smile

  3. I might give this a try this weekend. I’ve seen others’ buttons (and now yours) and I think I might be jealous, too 😉

  4. Oooh love the new buttons, especially the design and the pink color! You’re so good at figuring out how to add things to your blog. I need to figure out how to update my page links – apparently my “travel” one broke and nothing is coming up when I click the link :/ Blogger fail.
