Sharing a Blogger Blog Gets Easier

October 10, 2009 By Amanda Padgett

The folks at Blogger are really stepping up to the plate and making Blogger blogs even easier and more user friendly. I know that Word Press blogs are all the rage, but honestly I have had a harder time understanding it and am reluctant to switch over. Anyway, I found out about a new feature Blogger came out with and I have been meaning to share it for weeks.

At the top of your Blogger blog, there is a navigation bar that “Search Blog, Flag Blog, Follow Blog and Share.” “Share” is the new feature I am “sharing” with you today.

Okay, first, below is a screen print of BBD, with the “Share” button circled and an arrow pointing to it. I do this so that everyone can see plainly what the heck I am talking about.

If you click on that Share button, a little box will pop up and you can click on how you would like to share the blog you are visiting. The options are Twitter, Facebook and Google Reader. I like the Twitter option best, so that is what I am going to use for the tutorial. Below is a screen print of BBD and the Share box that pops up.

So, now I am going to go share this post on Twitter so you can see how it works. The screen print below shows a screen print of my Twitter page. I added the “Simple tutorial on how to use Blogger’s “share” button at…” the rest was what popped up when I clicked on Twitter in the share box. sharetipontwitter-1696112

There are many times that I when I am blog hopping and I come across a really useful or funny post and I want to share it on Twitter. Before I used (LOVE that program and will share about it another time) but now I can just click on the Share option in the Blogger navigation bar and presto!

Hope this tutorial helps a few of you. Hey, maybe you can even “share” BBD on Twitter for me. That would be awesome! If you do, please @amandapadgett so I can see your tweet and share the love back for you too!

Now, I realize that it does squat for the WordPress users, and I promise I am going to try to figure out that platform so I can be of some use to you, I just have so little time for blogging lately that it will have to wait a while longer.
