Ever since I created the blog icon I’ve been pleasantly surprised by where I’ve discovered it’s been used and encouraged by the responses I’ve received from those that have downloaded it and are using it.
In April this year web designer Mark Hesketh wrote a blog post about the blog icon… a couple of weeks ago Events Northern wrote an amazing blog post about their search for a blog icon and how they’d ended up using mine… a couple of days ago Carol Katona from AssurX informed me that Constant Contact are using it in their customer facing systems, as you can see from the video below (starts at 30 secs)… and today I received this message on the Facebook wall from Jessica LaShawn Payton “Thanks! I’m going to use the blog icon in my social media presentation. I didn’t want to use the orange B since we’re not using blogger and the tumblr badge looks too much like the twitter badge and would be too confusing to a novice social media user. This works just great!!”
I’ve also been surprised by how popular it’s become and the number of people using. I get around 120-130 people a day visiting my personal blog after searches for “Blog Icon” (that’s about 45,000 people a year!) below are yesterdays statistics. Compared to this time two years ago when I was surprised to get around 20 people a day
so if you’re looking for a blog icon that’s completely free to use, you can stop looking
