AddThis… Great way to get Social Bookmarking to your site or blog!

Hey all…

There’s this cool free service that I found courtesy of Nick Stamoulis’ blog – Blog Marketing Journal. AddThis.com provides a way to simplify the bookmarking/sharing methods for your readers/viewers. I’ve looked at a number of different options and the AddThis widget is the simplest/easiest to use one of all of them to this point.

They provide several options for how to get it into your site or blog, including a WordPress plugin, which I’ve added to this blog.

You can add their widget to your blog or RSS feed, select which style of widget you’d like, and then select one of several options:

on a Website

  • on a Blog
  • on a MySpace page
  • on an Ezine or Newsletter

Cool enough you can also add it via:

  • A Feedburner Feedflare
  • WordPress Plugin (2 versions)
  • And Widgetbox

But wait, there’s more! You also get free stats showing what visitors are bookmarking, which can be useful for monitoring traffic and so on.

So give them a look — at Addthis.com.

Until next time…

Comments… Argh!

Hi all…

Thanks to a nice person at http://www.sweetlifewithmary.com/, it became clear today why I may not be getting ANY comments. I had WordPress set to require folks to register and log in to leave comments. Doh!

Oops!

That little switch has been flipped. To verify that it is indeed working as it should, would somebody mind leaving me a comment?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the trouble.

Pays to be nice to folks!

Hi all!

The other day I posted a link to Caroline Middlebrook’s site where she listed a number of eBooks to help with SEO, internet marketing, and so on. And she actually stopped by to visit! I thought that was quite nice of her!

So I guess it’s true what folks say — it pays to be nice and network with other bloggers!

Have a great day… I’m gone tomorrow, but will have a cool post on Monday about my Blue Man concert experience on Monday!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I’ve caught the Flux! BlogFlux!

Hey all…

BlogFlux

I thought I’d try and add my blog to another blog network, this one called Blog Flux. According to their site, they have more than 95,931 blogs listed on their site and have been getting quite a number of hits on a daily basis. Yesterday, based on their statistics page, they had more than 2,318,010 unique visitors and 4,451,527 page views. I’d say they’re generating a good deal of traffic!

They also offer some cool services like e-mail obfuscation, a button maker, and so on.

So we’ll see if it helps out traffic to Fitzy Business and the Lair of the Green Knight. One can only hope!
