Today we are going to work on creating social media buttons for your followers to get in contact with you outside of your blog! I personally love social media and enjoy spending time on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram when I am not blogging. I think it is a great way to become friends with your followers!
Take your social media buttons and save them to your desktop. Then go into your blog and start a new post (you will never publish this post). In Blogger - you will go into the HTML tab of your upload your social media buttons.
Now go back into your "Compose" tab and link up each button to your social media web address.
After linking each individual social media button, go back into the "HTML" tab and copy the coding for the images and links.
At this point you are done with your post. You can save your post as a draft so that you always have the coding for your social media buttons when you need it. Now go into your layout tab and add a new gadget. Choose the HTML gadget. Paste in your social media button coding from your blog post.
And wahoo! You have social media buttons that help your followers reach out to you in new forms!
Please let me know if you have any questions - I will definitely reach out and help as much as possible. I use Blogger and am not at all familiar with Wordpress - but there are tutorials on the web to help Wordpress users do the same process!
