free social media icons . blog better

icons by Pink Moustache

If you want to continue to take your blog to the next level, you need to give your readers exactly what they're looking for - without making them work for it. If they can't find your Facebook page right away, they'll just quit looking, and now you've lost a potential Facebook fan. Here's my Facebook page, by the way! ;D

You can take everything up a notch by using social media icons. These logos are all universally-recognized, and they'll drive readers to your other social media outlets. There are tons of beautiful icons available on Etsy, often for under five bucks, but sometimes you just want something for free. Maybe you're not ready to commit to the idea enough to shell out your hard-earned cash. I totally get that!


That's why I'm sharing some of my favorite free icon sets. You can find even more just by Googling "free social media icons."  Warning - be prepared to spend forever sifting until you find your favorites. There are so many options! when you pick out something great, check out this installation tutorial for Blogger and Wordpress - part of Kira at Her New Leaf's Primp My Blog series.
