  4. You're very welcome. Bookmark her blog as she adds new information to help out wordpress.com bloggers nearly everyday.

    I think she has insert the social bookmarking icons/links manually each time. Knowing how efficient she is at things, I expect she has them in a text file and just copies and pastes the whole line into her post so she doesn't have to type it out each time.

    Drop a note on one of her posts and ask - unless she sees this thread and answers here.

  5. oh ! ok i will try that -

  6. Here's a good resource on writing links and such from the FAQ's: http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/07/01/how-to-write-links/

  7. There is no elegant automatic way to insert the social bookmarking icons that you see at the end of my posts. The code comes from sunburntkamel and can be found here http://archgfx.net/blog/2006/geek/blogging/social-bookmarks-on-wordpresscom

    Thanks for popping in and giving that link. I've put it in my copy and paste file.

  9. Thanks for your update Timethief !!!!

  10. http://socialposter.com/ is it easy one ?

  11. @linuxunix
    Thanks for the links.

  12. But when i used html code as mentioned by Timethief ----- "This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!"
    even timethief site also not XHTML valid ? will this effect google ranking as i heard that google repects strict validations.

    wordpress.com blogs are xhtml 1.0 or 1.1 ? i checkd for both formats. But no use ? this is something i need to takecare or ?
    http://validator.w3.org/ ===> here i am checking

    Thanks for your time

  13. I've seen that with most wordpress themes/blogs. On my test blog without any posts, it doesn't validate. It's never stopped Google from crawling any of my blogs though. I think for the most part, from viewing the "errors" they are mostly minor and it seems like Google ignores them.

  14. Another dead easy method to add social bookmarklets to your posts so that users can bookmark your post with more than 15 social bookmark network sites :
