Updated Blog Sharing

I updated the sharing tools on blog.apievangelist.com today. Previously it had eight buttons, representing the top social network channels that drive traffic to the blog.

I'm changing it, putting emphasis on: These are the topkinlane-productions2 share posts on API Evangelist that drives traffic to the blog.

I started by adding individual buttons from all the major providers: At first I used AddThis for the whole share toolbar, but I couldn't get it to layout the way I wanted. So I used individual buttons from the Google +1, Twitter and LinkedIn, then I used AddThis for the other top providers:
  • Instapaper
  • Hacker News
  • DZone
  • Posterous
  • Tumblr
  • Reddit
I will be making some major updates to kinlane.com and using the same share strategy for the blog and web site. I'll keep adjusting to keep in line with top channels that drive traffic to my blogs.
