Old spice guy

Hello gentlemen.  And ladies.

Look at your website’s current social media icons.

Social Media Icons

Now look at mine!

Social Media Icons

Now back to YOUR social media icons

Social Media Icons

Now BACK TO MINE!

Social Media Icons

Sadly, your socia media icons are not mine. But they can….

Hold on.

What was that?

You have absolutely no idea what I’m babbling about?

Sigh.

Okay, listen.

I haven’t yet had my morning coffee, okay?   So making a video right now with me in my nice fluffy warm LL Bean housecoat instead of my lacy black net.goddess lingerie would be almost as dramatically attention-grabbing as my currently empty, sad, lonely coffee cup.

Thus, instead I’m doing a visual write up along the lines of:

May I now continue?

Thank you!

As I was saying, now LOOK AT MINE!

Social Media Icons

Sadly, your social media icons are not mine.

But if you ditched the common boring “must imitate the other 39,392 bloggers on this planet!” way your icons currently look, they can be as breathtakingly *stellar* as mine.

Look down.

Back up!

Where are you?

You’re on my site, Barbara Ling.com, looking at incredible shiny glossy social media icons your site could right now be entrancing your visitors with!

What’s in your hand?

Back at me!

I have it!

It’s your mouse!  Getting ready to click on my shiny social media icons below to tell your friends about this post after you’ve realized how much fun you’re having reading and learning from it!

Look again.

The icons are now on YOUR SITE!  Compelling YOUR visitors to promote…YOU!

Anything is possible when you think outside of the box.

Which what I’m about to show you…….right now.  :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Gosh that was fun to write!

But I digress.  :)

I was moved to write the above after bunches of my wondrous readers contacted me offline to ask me:

“Jeepers Barb, why did you change from SexyBookmarks? Where did you get the new icons?  How did you set them up?  Can I tell my friends about them?”

Well, like my mom always says, if something is going to happen, it’s gonna happen to my daughter.

Last week, you see, I discovered that Sexy Bookmarks was smooshilating my Feedburner feed (I learned about it from Feedburner insists that my feed is too big .  FYI, Sexy Bookmarks vs. Feedburner does offer a solution that apparently lets you keep SB in your site).

But after deactivating it, I realized that I had effectively made it impossible for readers to promote my posts.

Not good!

Searching about on WordPress, I came across Light Social which is perfect!  Every individual post gets hyperlinked automatically!

Perfect, except….for one teeny tiny (literally teeny tiny) problem.

The icons they offer – they’re teeny-tiny!

They’re only 16×16 pixels in size.  ie, they’re this:

Social Media Icons

Now, I don’t know about you, but I like it when people notice how to promote my writings.

So I started looking about how I could make those social media icons work for me.

And I realized, it required just this one teeny tiny enhancement:

The default images are stored in the light social plugin plugin directory – if I uploaded NEW social media icon images with the same name, *they’d* be used instead!

So off I went thru the Internet, searching for the most perfect set of free social media icons imaginable.  When I found them, I downloaded them, made sure to choose the 128×128 (but set the size to 75) images, uploaded them, tweaked the plugin code to specify the height and width, and voila!

And you see the result below at the end of me post.

Nice, eh?

So!  If you want some eye-catching social media web icons at the ends of *your* posts, you can do what I did!

It’s free, it’s easy, and all it requires is finding an social media web icon set that you like.

My Best Picks

Looking for the best Authority groups/masterminds online? Here are my favs:

And don't forget our FB Perking Up Profits Group as well - the best powerful friendly Authority Marketing Group around!

  1. Great post Barbara, but I'm afraid I'm not quite sold. What of the old saying that "bigger is not necessarily better" or even "it's not the size that matters, it's how you use it"
    I'll be watching the comments with interest. ;)

  2. Barbara, nicely done!
    I'm loving this presentation, I'm super excited you stopped by my blog … and to think you came to me. I'm so glad you did, this site is a great find!
    I clicked on 5 or 6 of the links, they got better and better as I scrolled. This is like locking me in a vegan bakery and telling me to go for what I know or better yet giving me a free shopping spree at a bookstore! 
    ;-) Thanks!

  3. Hi Barbara,
    This was an awesome post.  I loved your opener.  (I got it)  Really eyecatching and I love these icons.  I may do follow your lead on this.

    • Glad you liked it! For some reason, Akismet ate your comments, so I’m patiently going thru them all. And thanks again for mentioning me on your site!

  4. Hi Barbara,
    Wow! What a list of icons.
    Thanks for sharing them and your witty insight. Eye-catching DEFINITELY counts when it comes to social media icons.
    Have a great day!
    Ryan

    • Yes, I like eye-catching too – I hate it when I have to hunt around for the critical info I quickly need (cough cough twitter IDs cough). :)

  5. A great collection!
    But I must say that many of these icon sets were made to showcase the designer's skills and will hardly look good in many designs (i.e. you need a 'grunge' template for the grunge icons to look natural on your blog).

    • That’s why I put more than 100 from which to choose. :) You’re right in that you have to make sure the icon set you choose…fits your design.

  6. Oh sure – Thanks Barb – now how do I decide? LOL You've sure provided a lot of ways for people to let their blogs shine – thanks!

  7. Great list! Man, there are some great icons there that make me realize that I need to get on the ball a bit more. First of all I need to add some more buttons to my site, and second of all I need to make them look good. Sigh. So much to do.

    • Ah, but that’s where Light Social rocks – it gives you the code you need, all you have to do is change the icons. Don’t even want to think about hand-coding that meself…

  8. Once again dynamite information packaged with a smile. Love the article and not only what it says but the way you say it. Thanks.

  9. You had me all over the place Barbara, haha. Awesome, awesome social media badges and icon packs here that's for sure. I'm constantly having my designer change up nmy icons, I'm never happy. Ill have to send him a link to these.

  10. Way too much fun and so hard to decide which ones I want to use.
    As usual, another great post.I had no idea these little babies were out there.
    Thanks so much
