How to add a "share this" button to your blog posts

I just learned a new trick!! You can add a share this button to each of your posts that allows your readers to share your blog post (and blog link!) to social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Digg, Stumble and many others with just one click. Talk about viral marketing!! If you would like to add this to your blog, go to the website http://sharethis.com/
and follow these steps:
1. Choose "enable sharing for publishers", click the blue box that says get button
2. Choose the social networking sites that you want your readers to be able to choose from (I chose the default)
3. follow the instructions....it will redirect you back to your blog and create a new widget for you. all you have to do is click save.
This was seriously the easiest install ever! Let me know how it works out for you guys!!

  4. Awesome. Thanks for "sharing this." I'm still lacking bells and whistles on my blogspot blog. Wow! Just noticed your designed A Spoonful of Chocolate Hope's banner! That's one of my favorite Etsy shops and I love her banner. Nice work!
