The Daily Post

Our blogs are just one of the places we interact with people online. It makes sense to link our blogs to the other networks we use — Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, GitHub, and more — to share what we publish with our friends there, and to draw new fans to our blogs.

Some themes have social icons built-in, and lots of bloggers create their own custom widgets or use the built-in widgets for Twitter and Facebook. But there’s another, simple way to subtly highlight social network profiles that you might have missed: the Social Media Icons widget.

With the ability to express oneself, comes the responsibility of speaking clearly, enunciating, articulating, conveying, showing, demonstrating, and sharing what one is trying to communicate to others by practice, with the purpose of discovering truths about the world we lives in, and making what we have learned relevant-passing it on. Of course, only time will tell if we truly have something unique to say, helped any people understand the world better, or entertained anyone at all. In the meantime, we are trying to day more and become a better communicator, and blogs have a journal aspect to them, so they can be expected to have a personal slant. Mine are definitely opinionated, openly so, and one of my goals it to try to say effectively, and honestly what I think or feel keeping in mind my own ethics, as I am aware other people might read it. Minds change everyday, and feelings do too. Outside experiences shape us, and it is terrible not to write because you might worry that you would offend someone, just as it would be terrible not to dance because you want to lose weight, first.
