Socializing

Eddie Awad's blog posts have a nice row of social bookmarking icons at the bottom. These are courtesy of the Sociable plugin for WordPress. Each of these bookmarks the post at the associated social bookmarking site.

I have always thought it would be nice to have this on my blog. Since I can't use plugins willy nilly at WordPress.com, I had to find another way. Enter the Socializer by Pierre Far. Provides a way to bookmark your blog on a whole bunch (~40 at last count) of bookmarking sites. To make it easy to use:

1. I rolled my own chicklet : 69116222284211458404467ff.png
2. Created my custom URL http://ekstreme.com/socializer/?url=http%3A%2F%2F<my url>%2F&title=<my title>
3. Used the image and URL to create a Bookmark to my own blog

Not the same thing, but a pretty good hack even if I say so myself.

    Hi Rahul,

    Thanks for the tips. Works like a gem! ;)

  2. Hi Rahul, I run songsblog.com, and i was wondering if you’d take a look at my posts. I put the Socializer plugin in, but after I post, do I click it and it takes me to the page . Do I have to click every icon or it does it for me?

    Thanks

    Lawton,

    The readers of your blog will submit your post to their favourite social bookmarking website by clicking the appropriate button.

    Hope this helps.

  5. Hi, I,m fairly new at this and just getting started and am trying to come to terms with all this data. All I know is that I need to find ways to get traffic to my site, and hope that I am on the right track here. Cheers paul

  7. Just found out about Socializer – thanks for the cool tip! I’m surprised Socializer itself didn’t provide this…

    Just one thing I’m not sure about.

    Social bookmarking is when we save bookmarks to a public website and ‘tag’ them with keywords.

    So…if we use – http://ekstreme.com/socializer/

    …are the keyword tags already included with our page ?

  9. Rahul said

    Carole,

    You are right. There does not seem to be a way to submit tags thru Socializer at the moment.

    Rahul

  10. Carole said

    Raul, just a thought. Maybe our keywords for the relevant pages are automatically submitted.

    Also, I’ve downloaded the most popular graphs to click on and just wondered if there’s an easy way to link these up to socialize it.

    Howdy,

    I understand how Social Bookmarking will help me, but darn it all anyhow, I just don’t understand what it is you want me to do.

    Aside from me being a middle-aged, over-weight, over-privileged dumb American who thinks the name of our planet should be changed to “New York City”, can one of you take me in-hand and lead me through this?

    Do I need both the chicklet and the create my own socializer? Where do I install on my website?

  49. Looks like a very useful tool, thanks for sharing.

  50. What’s up, after reading this remarkable article i’m
    as well cheerful to share my know-how right here with friends.

  51. This is a decent article, may father who was an adviser told me.
    . Many people think that they are going to get rich off penny stocks,
    and they fail to recognize the long-term growth with compound interest on a basket of blue-chip stocks.
    While selecting companies for potential growth is the key, you should
    always balance your portfolio with several major companies as well.

    These companies have a track record for growth, so their stock is likely to
    perform well and consistently.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going
    to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  53. wonderful issues altogether, you just won a logo new reader.
    What might you suggest in regards to your publish that you made some days in
    the past? Any certain?

  54. Wow, right here is actually a wonderful diary.

  55. Mary said

    I discovered your weblog on Yahoo and read a handful of
    posts. fantastic workout! Now just twittered Log

  56. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I could
    I want to recommend you few attention-grabbing things or tips.
    Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding this article.
    I wish to read even more issues about it!

    Continue to operate, excellent function!

  58. Hello there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading your articles.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums
    that cover the same subjects? Thanks!

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your blog.
    It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen.

    Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    Plz respond as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. appreciate it

  61. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to check it out.
    I’m definitely loving the information. I’m
    bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and superb design
    and style.

  62. DASHCOM websites are springing up all around the world.
    Just want . link is on Piratebay does not mean that the users are installing, thus, the flawed data.

    There are a handful of significant improvements made over Vista, as well
    as the most part, it’s just a version of Vista which is both stable plus much more user-friendly.

  63. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the
    image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this paragraph is outstdanding. Thanks!
