Everyone likes free icons! Here’s a free blogging icon set that you can use however you like on your blog, website or anywhere you need some nice graphics.

I know how frustrating it can be to find free icons and images for your blog. Half the time you hunt around for hours only to find the perfect icon and then realize it costs a fortune or you can’t quite decipher the usage license. Well, these ones are free for you. Just don’t sell them or claim them as your own.

What’s the deal with these blogging icons?

I had these icons made so they are 100% original and haven’t been used anywhere else before (which we know is important for blogging SEO and stuff like that). The icons come in PNG format in two different sizes (100×100 and 250×250) but you can obviously manipulate them in Photoshop if you need.

What else would you like?

I know it can be hard for new bloggers to develop things like this so I’d love to add more freebies – this is just a start. If you have any other suggestions about icons I could add, different styles, or perhaps any other graphic types that you’d like made please let me know in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do.

  1. Thanks. Awesome idea!

    1. No worries!

      1. I could not figure out how to download the free icons you talked about but I did like the article. After reading section 4. I went to my Facebook Page and removed some photos I had copied from Google images. Thanks.

        1. Hi Doug. What problem are you having. You just need to click the red button in the article above.

    2. Luz Adriana Martinez on July 20, 2016

      Thank you!

  2. What a great gift! Thanks. πŸ™‚

    1. Easy.

  3. Marilyn Martyn on July 18, 2016

    Thank you Ramsay. I really enjoy reading your articles. Hopefully I will turn my BLOG into a winner. What you share is greatly appreciated.

    1. Thank you, Marilyn.

  4. great gift thank you. Could you do the moon and sun and other weather ones if possible?

    1. Great idea.

  5. Susan O'Dea on July 18, 2016

    Thanks Ramsay! Everyone loves freebies, especially original graphics. As for ideas, any type of web icon is handy…especially social icons.

    Thanks again, Susan

    1. Hi Susan. I was wondering whether or not to do a social icon set as well. Let’s see how the feedback goes and maybe we’ll make it happen.

      1. Susan O'Dea on July 18, 2016

        Great! I’ll give another idea too if that’s ok…icons for website tabs (similar to fontawesome icons)…people love them…but different ones would be even better. Thanks!

  6. Hey Ramsey, I have a question, is this the best place to ask?

    It’s about Blgo titles… should I just stick to keyword phrase as title or try and mix it up a little?

    Thanks as always!

    1. Hey Simon.

      If you can get your keywords in your title that’s best – but never at the expense of creating a good headline.

      I recommend reading ViperChill.com and seeing how he crafts his titles. Same with BuzzFeed and Copyblogger. A combination of those styles is how you make headlines best!

      Good luck.

      1. Thanks Ramsey, I will exactly that. You’re a legend.

  7. Christal Marx on July 18, 2016

    Great idea. Great title. Great email subject line & overall – just a great freebie that is unique from any other I’ve seen. Nice job.

    1. Thanks!

  8. So kind of you Ramsay.

    No registration and no email sign-ups, just click the download button and the icons are ours.

    Thank you for this wonderful icons.

    1. Yeah, no mucking around! Ha.

  9. Thanks!

    Hi Ramsay,

    Remember the comment in which I had mentioned something like “transparent marketing”? Maybe not.

    But this is it – the influence and power lies in empowering your followers.

    I’d love to use these icons for creating infographics. Hubspot does similar thing, but lacks in several aspects. Hope you could fill that gap.

    Although there are tools like Canva, etc. Maybe Infographic templates next time?

    It’s great to see how the versatility of your content is expanding beyond text and images. Love it! πŸ™‚

    1. What kind of templates are you thinking? I like the idea.

    2. Vishal Ostwal on July 19, 2016

      Here’s the deal – creating infographics and quote graphics consists of a lot of hassle.

      You have to search for quality stock photos, find the right icons, and keep tweaking tiny details to achieve a professional look.

      Even with Canva and other tools, people lacking an aesthetic sense, the ones for whom it’s hard to be creative, cannot create significant graphics and only waste their time which they can otherwise use for writing or doing some other important stuff.

      So I think giving something to others in which they just have to insert text and use images instantly, is a great idea.

      Whenever I don’t have an internet connectivity, I wish I have some PPT templates which I could turn into PNG images for new posts.

      As for infographics, I think there should be something with custom slots for content.

      For e.g. nowadays, once I create a template for “10 Things to Do” kind of post, I change the template slightly to create a new infographic suggesting “10 things” without compromising with quality or wasting time. They’re handy.

      Also, they should be somewhat universally usable, unlike some others which are suitable for some specific niche blogs.

      Let’s say you’ve created a template, then it must be appropriate for use by all bloggers, regardless of whether they write about gardening, self-help or rocket science. Sounds tough but makes sense.

      For instance, remember the days when there were different cords for keyboard, mouse and speakers? Whereas now, a single USB does it all.

      It’s easy, right?

      I think content and resources must be similar. Universally accessible and usable to all.

      Perhaps, in near future you might come up with a giant set of all kinds of resources for bloggers. Templates, icons, fonts, and god knows what.

      Just a suggestion though. Actually, I get excited when I talk about innovating and simplifying things, therefore I’ve typed such a long comment.

      1. This is excellent! Do you want to email me with some specific plans/ideas for say the first three items and I’ll develop them and give you a backlink when they go live?

        1. Vishal Ostwal on July 19, 2016

          Wow! This is one of the best things I’ve heard recently.

          I’ll mail you with some ideas I have πŸ™‚


  11. Thanks so much!

    1. No worries!

  12. Umesh Singh on July 18, 2016

    Great gift Ramsay πŸ™‚ I guess, I am going to use these icons soon for my blog.


  13. Thanks, Ramsay!

    1. You’re more than welcome.

  14. Thanks Ramsay, these are gorgeous!

    I’m still building my site, and these are much appreciated. I would love some for social media as well πŸ™‚


    1. A few people have asked for that so I’ll get on it.

  15. Sam - Depression For Teens on July 19, 2016

    Thanks!! Do you think you could do some people ones? πŸ™‚

    1. Great idea!

  16. These are cool! Thanks!

    1. Welcome!

  17. This is great! Big thanks!

    1. Any time.

  18. laura routh on July 19, 2016

    What a creative project, Ramsay! I’m especially fond of the tree. But then, I am an owl, and I live in trees πŸ™‚

    1. Ha.

  19. Francis Quarshie on July 19, 2016

    Great idea, Ramsay.

    You’ve thought of giving more freebies like this for us to download. That’s the best part of today’s post I like.

    As for these icons, I need them to work with. Downloaded.

    Thanks for sharing.


    1. Glad you like them.

  20. Ahmad Imran on July 19, 2016

    Cheers Ramsay, nice one.

  21. Eldhose Jacob on July 19, 2016

  25. Stephen Walker on July 19, 2016

    Hi Ramsey,

    Great set of icons – much appreciated.

    I would love to suggest new ones but, I find I am artistically deficient.

  26. Sarah Tilsley on July 19, 2016

    Thank you

  27. Sarah Tilsley on July 19, 2016

    Thank you. Love them.

    1. I’m glad.

    Thank you!

  31. Taylor Jones on July 19, 2016

    Very Cool! Thanks for sharing. I didn’t read every comment so I”m sorry if someone already mentioned this, but maybe a set of clothing icons. Pants, shirt, skirt, dress, tie. You know, for us fashion bloggers out there πŸ˜‰ Thanks again!

    1. That’s a great idea! I’ll add them to my fashion blogging post too. Thanks!

  32. Amrita Basu (Misra) on July 19, 2016

    Thank you so much.This is really thoughtful. I have searched for free icons and most of the free icon sets are not pretty.I think what you did is known as creating value.
    Appreciate it greatly

    1. I’m glad you like them.

  33. Thank you for the icons! Great and useful idea.

    1. Thank you!

  34. Tip of the hat.

    1. Need an icon for that.

  35. StΓ©phane on July 19, 2016

    I can’t be original in my comment, because the only thing coming to my mind is “thank you”.

    I told you in a previous comment that I love your generosity. I’m trying to follow your example with my modest blog.

    Thousand thanks!

    1. Thank you!

  36. regina bates on July 19, 2016

    You are awesome!

    Thank you

    1. You are!

  37. Thank you, Ramsay!
    I always appreciate freebies especially when they are of value.

    1. You’re welcome.

  38. Thank you
    I’m just getting ready to set up my new website and blog and at the moment have no idea what to do with a ‘blogging icon’ – or its significance – … I will learn more.

    1. Hi Marilyn. Sometimes these types of graphics are useful to use in posts or maybe in your sidebar to link to a mailing list. That kind of thing.

  39. Thanks so much Ramsay, I love it! Like them because they are colorful, not only white and black or unicolor how they use to be. And yes, I support the idea of social icons as well.

    1. Okay great!

  40. Abuku Orode on July 19, 2016

    Hi Ramsay, Thanks for this. You are right, it’s way difficult to get an icon that hasn’t already been used.

    This is a good stuff you did. Thanks.

  41. Good Guy Tyrant!

    1. Ha. I hope so.

  42. Hi Ramsay,
    Thanks for the icons. As usual, I look forward to reading your posts. You share so many great info that a blogger can use. I appreciate you!

    1. You’re welcome.

  43. Renard Moreau on July 19, 2016

    [ Smiles ] Ramsay, you really know about the concept of giving back to your community.

    People love fee stuff!

    Thank you for thinking about our needs!

    1. Any time.

  44. Gillian Rixey on July 19, 2016

    Thanks so much, these are great!

    1. No problems!

  45. Allison Dean on July 19, 2016

    Thank you, Ramsay, for the icons!

    Do we need to add an icon plugin for this to work or just do it via Upload Media in WordPress? I did both but not sure if I needed the plugin or not.

    1. Hi Allison. You just download the file and unpack it on your computer. There’s 50 images in there that you can just use however you like.

  46. Kimsea Sok on July 19, 2016

    Downloaded!… thanks for sharing..

  47. Jakob Boman on July 20, 2016

    Great and creative idea.
    I will try it:-)
    Thanks for always sharing concrete and useful advise.

  48. You are a good man Ramsay – you just met one of my urgent needs.

  49. Thanks a million

  50. Thank you! I love the icons they are so creative. I will definitely be using in blog and bullet journal. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

    1. Glad you liked them.

  51. Thank you so much for the icons, Ramsay.

    1. Welcome.

  52. Ryan Biddulph on July 24, 2016

    Hi Ramsay,

    This is absolutely brilliant.

    I use my travel images freely but augment with icons here and there. Super helpful idea here that hits on a pain point. I recall spending eons finding the perfect image for my blog then I needed to pay an arm and leg to buy it. Supreme frustration.

    Thanks for your generosity dude.


    1. No worries man. Hopefully more on the way.

  53. You asked what else we’d like. How about free stock images? I know there are already a ton of sites that give those, but I’m always looking for more.

    1. I’ve been working on that for a while. πŸ˜‰

      1. Oh, cool. Is there going to be news about that anytime soon?

        1. I hope so!

  54. Hey Ramsay,

    I came across this post in Kevin Duncan’s weekly newsletter. What a neat idea!

    Quick question: Which plugin do you use for that “email me only if someone replies to my comment” box?

    P.S. I love how you also have short “crunchy solutions” like this in addition to your long form content. Great reminder that “useful” doesn’t always have to be “epic”!

    1. Hi Alp.

      The plugin is called “Send email only on Reply to My Comment” but it hasn’t been updated in a year so I’ll be looking for something new soon.

      Thanks so much!

  55. Adeel Sami on July 26, 2016

    Hey, Ramsay!

    I knew of you from long but I just stumbled upon on your place after reading the guest post from Ryan Biddulph done on a blog. πŸ™‚

    And to my senses of surprises, I landed on this great post!! πŸ™‚

    I am gonna use them for sure on my blog!

    Once again, nice meeting you and you’ll see me often! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! Do you remember which post it was that you saw?
