Blogger Sharing

To my fellow bloggers! You know I like to throw out a tip every now and then, and here's one for all you bloggers out there.

As you may have seen, there's buttons at the bottom of the post that let you retweet or like the post. It's pretty cool and is a nice way to bring in traffic as well as let people fav stuff and so on.

You can do this simply by going to http://www.addthis.com and getting yourself a button.

AddThis adds these buttons to posts or the sidebar that let users share what they're viewing via hundreds of platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious and even e-mail.

AddThis works with the major hosts: Blogger, Wordpress, actual www sites and more. They let you select what site you're using and then what buttons you want from a variety of about 10 different buttons. After choosing to get your button, there's detailed instructions on how to get it on your page! Awesome!

You can also customize and create your own (I was too lazy when I went on but I will eventually to include Google Buzz). If you select the Analytics button, you also get traffic statistics and who is clicking and what exactly they are clicking (Facebook/StumbleUpon/Mail to... etc), but you need to create a free account which takes a few seconds (you don't have to verify via email).

Check it out, it wouldn't hurt to have it, and it shouldn't affect your workflow or posting processes... :-D
