How To Create Social Media Widget Using Font Awesome On Blogger


I received some emails asking me about how to create social media widget like mine. It's very easy and simple. I use Font Awesome, a collection of free icons both for web and desktop. Read these easy steps to use Font Awesome on your blog.


How to Use Font Awesome on Blogger:
  1. Open Font Awesome website. 
  2. On the Get Started sections, you will find 'EASIEST: BootstrapCDN by MaxCDN'. And copy the code over there
  3. This is the code. <link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
  4. Paste it inside <head> on blogger template you can find on template > edit HTML 
  5. And save it! 
  6. After that, add new HTML/Javascript widget. This time, I will teach you how to create like mine. 
  7. Paste this code on your HTML widget: 
<div style="
        text-align: center;
          letter-spacing: 5px;
            font-size: 18px;
          ">
            <a href="your facebook link"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a>
              <a href="your twitter"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a>
                <a href="your own pinterest username/"><i class="fa fa-pinterest"></i></a>
                  <a href="instagram username"><i class="fa fa-instagram"></i></a>
                    <a href="bloglovin username"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i></a>
                      <a href="your google+"><i class="fa fa-google-plus"></i></a>
                        </div>

                        And save it! You will have social media widget now. It's easy and you can customize your own if you want something different.

                        2. When I try to save the template with the changes, it says that a tag like this <
                          /link > is missing so I cannot continue with the process, any suggestions? Please let me know on my email: iriapitablog@gmail.com
