Feed icons for blogging guitarists

feed icons for blogging guitaristsFeed icons have become so standard now that I think you can play around with them a bit without confusing people.

I’m so pleased with my pink guitar pick RSS icon that I thought I’d share it the source files with you. Resize and color to your preference (although you’ll get extra points for pink)!

Thanks, Kristof the icon was one of my “getting my head around AI” projects.
Glad you like the new design. Theme is my tweakage of Dosh Dosh’s “Prosense Grey,” and the way I’ve set things up makes it fairly easy to completely change the look of the site with a few simple changes.

Yes, I was thinking that. It looks like a typical AI thing.

Actually, I really suck at AI. In AI, you have to know what you want beforehand. You can tweak it afterwards, but in general, you need to know what you want to draw looks like. In PS, you can just fool around. I’ve never been a vector kindaguy.

Just found you on Ordinary Folk and had to stop by and say that your idea of making these icons is pretty creative. Good job and what a way to make your mark on the blogosphere! ;)

Gotta love those Google ads …

Haha, I know! I’ve not done section targeting yet here, so the ads are all over the place. Not that section targeting does much good, but any port in a storm. I wonder what would happen if I wrote more about my beloved pussi and spunk? :twisted:

I love the RSS icon. I may have to put this to use along with your Brian’s Threaded comment hack. :smile:

No worries, Tazzie! A feed icon just tells people that the website is RSS enabled. It is usually linked to the URL of the RSS feed to the site. This makes it easy for people who use RSS readers to “subscribe” to the feed. If you want to know more about RSS, you can read my description here, or Wikipedia’s here.

Hi nice RSS logo…I like your design skills…very smooth, clean.

re new design, I do have a problem with the black main bar down the page. I hae difficulty see the font. Could do with being white IMO.
