Blog Make-Over Series – Adding Social Media to Each Post

by M. J. Joachim

In my original blog, my social media was listed in the margin, and pretty much shared my entire blog, as opposed to the individual post visitors enjoyed when they used it. Adding social media to each posts allows visitors to share only that which they truly like, and it helps blog owners track which posts are more popular by how much each post gets shared. Quite simply, adding social media to individual blog post is a handy and welcome addition to any blog, and it’s very easy to put in place.

Step 1:  From main blogger menu, go to “More options”
Step 2:  Choose “Layout”
Step 3:  In your “Blog Posts” box, click edit
Step 4:  Review list of “Page Post Options”
Step 5:  Scroll down to “Show Share Buttons” and click box

That’s all there is to it. While you’re in “post edit mode,” make any other changes you’d like.

That’s all for now, good people. Happy Friday to you all!
