Social Icons Blogger
Today I am going to teach you how you can add yet another social icons to your blogger blog. These social icons are a bit different as it has tooltip hover effect in them. This widget is made from pure CSS without the use of any image or JavaScript.

The concept behind this widget is quite simple. There are four social icons in which you can add your own desired URL. On hovering over these buttons one can see tooltip appearing with the help of transition and transform CSS. These icons are really eye-catching and have a attractive look. A live working demo of this widget can be seen just below.

Once you have seen the demo to add this widget to your blog just follow the below given instruction.

Adding the HTML/CSS in Layout

To add this widget firstly go to Blog Title → Layout → Add Widget → HTML/JavaScript and paste the code in the box below.

Hi! Well, this is by far the most helpful site I have come across on the internet to help me make my blog more beautiful. This is simply amazing. And a question. Can you tell me how do you add the four functional cartoon-cum-cool icons at the bottom of your page? That would be great.
And you're doing a good job. Thank you :D
And do visit and suggest any changes.
