I've added buttons to various parts of my website. Some are animated and some have mouseover capabilities. A widget allows
you to add content to your page without having to write any code
yourself. Below are some widgets I used.
Adding an animated Twitter button was very easy. I just downloaded the graphics and the link from Siah Design's site.
I just used one of LinkedIn's standard buttons for my website.Mouseover Buttons by Cool Text
I designed my button and then I had to follow instructions on how to implement mouseover buttons using Yola. I found the instructions on forsite.
I chose not to use some of the standard blog tools provided. Below are the added widgets I used.
Because I wanted to know how many people were subscribing to my blog, I chose not to use the default RSS widget. Instead, I am using FeedBurner, which also allows me to analyze the traffic. To find steps on how to implement FeedBurner click here.
I provide an email subscription option through FeedBurner.Sharing and Bookmarking
I used ShareThis to make it easier for site visitors to share and bookmark without having to leave my site. I chose not to use FeedFlare with my FeedBurner acount since ShareThis offers more choices and flexibility.
