How to Add "Add This"

I’ve been under the weather all day, and it doesn’t seem to be getting better. Because of this, I’ve been put on “bed rest” by my husband and kids. This has given me extra time to catch up on my blogging. It’s been nice to have some time to do something I enjoy. I only wish it were under happier circumstances. I am hoping to contact the doctor on Tuesday, if I’m not better by then. (Naturally, this would be over a holiday weekend! Ah well, the Lord knows. He will take care of me.)Ā 

I’ve been meaning to share about “Add This” for some time now, so it’s nice to get the chance finally. šŸ™‚ Blogger has a built in set of share buttons that show up below each post. They are okay. I wanted something bigger and prettier. I guess that’s just me. Anyway, I thought I’d share about these buttons from Add This for Blogger.

First you’ll want to “turn off” the little buttons that Blogger gives you. To do this, go to “layout” and select “edit” on “blog posts” – the main portion of the blog, where your posts appear. Then, un-tick the box that says “show share buttons.”

Next, click HERE. Once you are at their site, click the style of buttons you desire, there are three styles. Then click “Get Add This”. Copy the code and add it to an HTML gadget and place the gadget near the bottom of your blog. It’s that simple! Enjoy!
