When you are setting up a blog or redesigning it, one of the things you usually look for are those cute little icons to give a bit of joy to buttons and banners“call to action” (call to action) or just for general aesthetics.
And something similar happens when you want to change your template, in an attempt to find one that you like and at the same time is different from everything that most of us use, we end up lost in the swamp of indecision.
So that you have somewhere to start looking, I have made this list of 15 sites where you can find tens of thousands of SVG icons.
The list is not in any order of importance, quality, quantity or alphabetical order, I have simply added them as I came across them and noted them down. The only things I have taken into account for the selection are the ease of download, some configuration options and/or that they have HTML versions.
You can find more pages on your own from different search engines like Iconfinder or similar that sift through a lot of free, paid and freemium sites.
Remember to give credit in some way to the independent creators if you use their work, either with a link on your blog, a review or, if you can afford it, by making a donation to support their work and the kindness of releasing it.
