Pretty sites make me visit longer. Right? If you see nice colors and beautiful images, you want to peruse a website longer. This is a fact.
Call me a goof but I always look for the social media icons on a site, not only to link to their facebook and twitter, but mostly to see what cool looking prettiness they are using on their site. Buttons that stand out and aren’t the same old designs on every site are what I look for on a site. You can do a search for icons and get millions of choices, but you want something that stands out, no?
Where do you find such icons?
I have found great icons at Bourn Creative. They offer a great variety of other resources and services, but their packs of icons are just delish. They even give you instructions on how to use them properly on your site.
Here are some fun handwritten font icons.
And finally, coffee cups? Love.
Equally awesome are great widgets for your WordPress site. Simple Social Icons are what I am using and it’s quite easy and beautiful. I had found this tutorial from Violette (another spectacular inspiration) that was helpful.
Have fun, and let me know which you use or like!
