AddThis widget

I’ve been looking for a simple way to add those ‘Add to…’ buttons at the bottom of each of my blog entries. I’ve looked at a number of different methods of adding the buttons but the best one I’ve seen is the one from http://www.addthis.com/. It can be easily integrated into the major blogging tools.

If you use blogger you can easily update your blog template to include it. If you use WordPress then there is a simple plugin that you can use. There are a number of different versions of the AddThis widget but I’ve gone for the WordPress plugin of the drop-down version. Installing is easy. Just put the plugin in your WordPress plugins directory and activate it. By including your AddThis username in the php file you can get stats to tell you how¬†often people have clicked on the links.

Update 2010: Due to layout and functional problems with AddThis I’ve switched the site over to Bookmarkify.
