Social Media Buttons and a Giveaway

If you are a new blogger you know that there is so much to learn!  (And I am positive that seasoned bloggers are always learning something new too!)  Sure, signing up to use Blogger isn't too difficult but if you are trying to give your blog a foothold in the blogging world you need some "extras".  Most importantly you need to let people know who you are and give them various ways of connecting with you.

One great way to help connect with your readers are social media buttons.  (Not to be confused with the sharing buttons found at the bottom of posts--also quite important).  These give your readers a quick and easy way to connect with you--however they want!  Some people love viewing tweets, others love status updates, some people want to avoid the hassle of surfing and had all of their favorite blogs delivered via RSS, and others love browsing pins.  The Philosopher's Wife can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Etsy, RSS, and is always available via email.  The best way to make sure that my readers know that they can connect with me is a clearly marked and easily found set of social media buttons.

Doing these buttons yourself can be quite time consuming.  If you are anything like me you would rather spend that blogging time writing new content, promoting your blog, or some other task.  So what's a blogger to do?  

Go to Your Title Here Designs!  They have a wide assortment of pre-made and custom banners and buttons.  Here are a couple of examples, all of which I think are great!

If you have visited The Philosopher's Wife before you might notice that I have just added my brand new awesome pink buttons, courtesy of Your Title Here Designs.  I am very happy with them.  (After entering below, please feel free to click on them and connect with me however YOU like!)



Once a winner is chosen (via Rafflecopter) they will have 48 hours to respond.  In exchange for this giveaway I received one set of social media buttons.  Of course, all opinions are exclusively my own.  More Legal Stuff.
