Tweet this

  1. Hi all

    I know that WordPress.com doesn't support plug-ins. However, is there anything that I can add to my blog with a similar functionality to 'Tweet This' etc? (forgive me, on a steep learning curve here).

    To explain, what I would like to add to my blog is the following -

    1. A 'Share This/Tweet This' type button that allows people to share individual posts of mine via Twitter, Digg, Facebook, email etc.
    1. A permalink function for each post, or something that allows individual posts to be identified via their own unique link.

    Is this at all possible on WordPress.com?

    Many thanks in advance.
    Deb

    The blog I need help with is anetoffireflies.wordpress.com.

  2. This post contains all of the social bookmarking options for worpress.com bloggers. If you choose the bookmarks from getsociallive they will automatically update both Twitter and Facebook. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/04/08/social-bookmarks-for-wordpress-com-blogs/

  3. What you will need to achieve what your asking is the services of http://getsociallive.com

  4. As we cannot edit our templates there is no means of having these bookmarks automatically appear on wordpress.com posts. We must individually generate the URL and title specific bookmarks for each post, and then switch to the HTML editor and paste them at the end of our posts before we publish them. It takes only moments and to do and works very well. :)

    Although you and I may prefer getsocial live I can see the click throughs from my post which contains all the bookmarking choices we can make. The pattern I see indicates a significant number of bloggers do not make the same choice you and I do, so that's why I always post the link to the post that contains all of the choices. :)

  6. Thank you both so much for the speedy replies :-)

  7. You're welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)
