How To Add Social Media Icons to Blogger Header


I came up with this tutorial to help nairotech readers add various stylish social icons above their blogger headers just like ours, pictured below. This stylish widget will enable you add social media icons to your blog's header, icons like: Google+FacebookTwitterPinterest Icons to further beautiful the outlook of your blog and also help you gain more social media subscribers to your blog. Why i find this widget interesting is because it rotates immediately a mouse is been hovered on it. Guys, you need to check it out yourself enough of the long talking.

<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='no'>

Step 4. And  add this code just above it:

<div class='social-media-icons' id='social-icons'>
<ul>

<li class='media_icon'><a href='http://facebook.com/username'><img border='0' src='http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-hJlnVDP-uXk/UaKErpYECEI/AAAAAAAADhA/DA59rR8trrA/s1600/Facebook.png'/></a></li>

<li class='media_icon'><a href='http://twitter.com/#!/username'><img border='0' src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-x7YZ7aKIxM8/UaKErq0FZlI/AAAAAAAADhE/3zNd_IFPT8g/s1600/Twitter.png'/></a></li>

<li class='media_icon'><a href='https://plus.google.com/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/about'><img border='0' src='http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DNSrkD8pl14/UaKEsW_JdfI/AAAAAAAADhU/S0jGIdQuO4M/s1600/googleplus.png'/></a></li>

<li class='media_icon'><a href='http://yourblogname.com/feeds/posts/default'><img border='0' src='http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-H3nOjhn9wk8/UaKErtM0_mI/AAAAAAAADg8/vJ8tEgRcl5M/s1600/RSS.png'/></a></li>

</ul></div>

Customization

- Change the red color with your usernames and id: the first is your Facebook username, the 2nd your Twitter, the 3rd you should change the XXXXX by your Google+ profile ID & while the fourth is the name of your blog.

- To change the icons, just replace the urls in blue with the ones of your images.
- You can add more icons if you want, you just have to add before </ul></div> a line like this for each extra icon you want:


<li class='media_icon'><a href='Link URL'><img border='0' src='Image URL'/></a></li>

Step 5. You can now Save your Template to apply changes watch your blog shine bright.

NOTE: This stylish effect will not function on Older browsers because is done with CSS3
