Bookmarked: GetSocialLive.com

May 23, 2010

“Hey Zark, how do you get those social bookmark buttons at the bottom of your blog posts?”

I get asked this quite frequently.  I use WordPress.com, which has worked great for me, but the social bookmark button concept is not something they have built-in.  That’s why I’ve bookmarked GetSocialLive.com, which does the heavy lifting for me.  Once I have a post set up, I can go to the site and paste in the post’s title and URL, and choose a button style, and the site will automatically generate the social button bookmark html code for me.  Pasting that at the bottom of my post’s html page gives me a nice social bookmarking buttons for people to use.  There are a variety of designs to choose from, such as:

Originally, creator Hillel Stoler wrote GetSocial as Windows software.  He expanded that cross-platform with a web-based version called GetSocial Live!, which is what I use all the time.  Both were created by Stoler for free for the WordPress.com community.  If you find either useful, give him a donation as thanks, and let me know what you think!

Fastest Growing WordPress.com Blogs

January 8, 2009

fastest

Even though I have my own domain mapped to it, my blog is hosted by WordPress.com.  I find their blog tools easy to use, and flexible enough to make a customized looking blog without having to use blogging software or have any extensive knowledge of website creation and management.  They have a good backend too, with a lot of useful tools, stats, etc.

I was poking around the stats section, and when I looked at some of the general WordPress.com categories, I was blown away to see my blog listed in the “Fastest Growing WordPress.com blogs.”  Wow.  All I can say is thanks everyone for visiting, and I hope you subscribe and come back often!
