|Share buttons are an easy way to increase traffic.|
For today's challenge, add share buttons to your blog and/or website.
The easiest way to do this is to go to http://www.addthis.com/ and click on the Get AddThis button. It's big, bright, and orange. You can't miss it.
Basically, the site will give you button options, and you select the one you like best. The AddThis site will then provide you with HTML code that you can place into your site and/or blog posts. Plus, it provides analytics for bloggers who like to see how much the buttons are boosting traffic.
If you want customized buttons, you could enlist the help of a programmer friend or try playing with the code yourself. I recently learned that some really cool buttons on one friend's blog were created by her husband (yes, she married a programmer, though I don't think she had her blog in mind when she did so).
Plus, I'd totally love hear anyone else's advice on adding share buttons. Share in the comments below, and everyone (including me) will love you for it.
