.social_profiles li {
    display: inline;
    margin-top: 40px;
    list-style-type: none;

.social_profiles li a {
    display: inline-block;
    list-style-type: none;
    width: 40px;
    height: 40px;

Now lets go and do one more step…


5. Now again look for the following code in your Template:


<b:includable id='postQuickEdit' var='post'>


Normally there are three instances of the tag present in your template ( post-footer, post-footer-line-1, post-footer-line-2 like this.

you just need to locate post-footer  (from top) one.


6. Paste the following code immediately below (after) opening post-footer div:


<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>

<div id='social_profiles-wrap'>
<p>Don&#39;t Miss Any Update, Join Us on Social Networks.</p>
<ul class='social_profiles'>
<li><a class='facebook' href='' target='_blank'><span>Facebook</span></a></li>
<li><a class='twitter' href='' target='_blank'><span>Twitter</span></a></li>
<li><a class='gplus' href='' target='_blank'><span>Googl+</span></a></li>
<li><a class='pinterest' href='' target='_blank'><span>Pinterest</span></a></li>
<li><a class='rss' href='' target='_blank'><span>RSS</span></a></li>
