for new social media buttons!

After all the helpful advice I received from people about how to improve my blog I've decided to put some into action! You may notice above my new (extremely large) social media icon buttons!!!

I went on to trusty ol' google and searched 'add social media button to blogger' and stumbled across this wonderful blog post from DIY Design Fanatic... Now she says it's easy and she is NOT lying! If you have been wondering how to do this video is so stinking easy even I could do it! It is specific to Blogger but if you click on the you tube clip on the page you can go through to a similar clip for Wordpress..

Now as you will notice my icons are huge and so I have placed them at the top - this is because I thought I had resized them but obviously I did something wrong and they turned out that size. When I put them on the sidebar they just looked even sillier than they do up top but this was the best of 2 bad choices... Consider my blog a work in progress over the next couple of weeks as I start to try and customize it and make it more 'me'...

Stay tuned...


  1. Well done!! It's very satisfying when you create something for the blog design. It's one of my favourite things to do. I like the colour of your buttons, they compliment your blog. I look forward to seeing some of the other changes you make :)

  2. These look great! I have always wondered how people do those big buttons. I might have to give it a go!

    1. I was amazed at how easy it was! Gives me hope that I can make other changes! Lol...

  3. Well they worked, I am now following you on Pinterest and Instagram! xxx

  4. Working out the coding to add those buggers isn't easy - you've done really well! :)
