How to Add an Instagram Icon Link to Your Blog

Instagram has become a major obsession in the world of social media, and now Instagram icons are starting to show up in sidebars all across the blogosphere. Adding an Instagram icon link to your site is surprisingly easy. Here’s the how-to:

1) Grab your Photo Feed URL: Thanks to Instagram’s web interface, your profile and photo feed can be found online at instagram.com/yourusername.

2) Pick a Social Media Icon: The next step is to pick your favorite Instagram icon. There are hundreds upon hundreds of free ones on the web to choose from!

3) Link your Icon to your Photo Feed: Upload your icon of choice as a picture to your blog post or sidebar and then link it to the URL of your Instagram photo feed from step 1.

And that’s it – Easy as 1, 2, 3! Let me know if you have any questions. Happy blogging!

  5. If you don’t want to just link to the page, but actually allow a user to Follow you with am instagram follow button on your page/blog you can try http://instagramfollowbutton.com , there are a lot of solutions out there but this seems to be the one that lets someone follow you the easiest

  6. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. This was really helpful , Thankyou ! I got my icon from a differant source but as I’m a beginner blogger, you made it simple and easy, Thankyou :)

  8. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
