I wanted to title this post… I’m done! But it’s just the opposite. Although I’ve completed the project of setting up a brand new blog from start to finish, it’s time to get busy!
It has been both a fun experience, as well as a challenge. Finding information on “how-to” was not difficult at all. There are tons of books, articles, websites… devoted to developing blogs, and websites. I was blessed in finding information I could digest, follow, and implement without too much trouble.
The sense of accomplishment I felt after completing one task after the other was AMAZING!
One of the last tasks I completed was adding social media icons. I started with SitsGirl’s How to Add Social Media Icons to Your Blog. I turned to Youtube when I started experiencing a trouble. Just reading the directions was leaving me disconnected. I needed to see and hear someone go through the process. That’s when I found Monica Stone’s Tutorial: Adding Social Media Icons To Your WordPress Blog.
That was just what I needed!
After downloading icons, moving them to a folder, adding them to the media file, and adding the Crafty Social Buttons plugin… I was stuck again.
Finally, I clicked… clicked… and realized the widget was simple enough without the hoopla. I just added the URL links for each social media account, chose a look… And WALA, social media icons!
To say I’m excited is an understatement! I’m looking forward to sharing with you topics that include Adventure, Blogging, Books, Crafts & DIY, Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Writing & Publishing, and who knows what else.
Join me on this new journey, and let’s see where it takes us.
