  1. Hello Grace!

    I have been following your blog for quite some time now, and I must say I love what you are doing here. Especially the blog new face and design.

    As for the blogger blog share buttons, the 2nd and 3rd are my favorite.

    Very attractive and attention seeking. Which will actually compel the toughest dude to click on them.

    However I would have preferred you to include easy edit tips for my fellow bloggers whom might be finding it hard understanding HTML codes, to easily edit and change the colors to their own unique standard and taste. You know uniqueness matters.

    Your writing skills are enamours. And I just bought for myself 2 sit belts awaiting your 2015 ride in full.

    Uche Francis!

    1. Hello Uche,

      Thanks for your kind words, it's really encouraging. From your suggestion, i'll definitely edit the post and put up some guidelines on how to customise each code for the social folllow widget. Good thing you pointed this out, hope to get more visits from you mister.

  2. I really like what you are doing on your blog. I just need facebook button. Thank you for writing this, it is vrey helpful and you have so pretty design on your blog :)
