  1. I like the look of the buttons for the links. I take it there is a cool plugin? Or do you just have awesome html skills?

    • @Shaun — Thanks, and I am glad you like the buttons. No, I have no html skills sadly. The buttons are actually shortcodes provided in the premium theme that I have from Elegant Themes. They have about 9 different (well probably more) types of short codes for shadow boxes, links, quotes, all kinds of cool stuff.

      Here is a link to their site if you are interested…it is an affiliate link, but I will highly recommend them!
