I FINALLY figured out how to get the cool Social Media buttons on my posts!
See that bar at the bottom with facebook and twitter and other buttons? Click on those to share this post to your respective social media favorites.
I had two share buttons before, but only after seriously hacking the HTML and fighting with Blogger all the way. When blogger friend Shannon asked how, I couldn’t even remember what I did. Fortunately, I found a post that explains it all very well, even better than my original kluge (yes, that’s a word, thank you very much).
It’s easy if you have a standard blogger template. But if you have an “designer” template like me, you have to do a little HTML programming. A very little. Believe me, it is much, much easier than what I did before. And it’s all shiny when you’re done.
I’m sharing the wealth on this for selfish reasons: please, please, please add these buttons to your blog! There are so many cool posts that I read that I want to share, and having the buttons makes it SO easy, that even when I don’t have much time, I’ll click away.
It just takes a few minutes to do, even if you have to do the extra steps.
