If you want to allow readers of your wordpress.com blog to post your entries to stumbleupon, del.icio.us, or whatever, there isn’t a sidebar widget or anything provided for you to do that. I consider this a shortcoming of the wordpress.com service, but whatever. I finally found a bookmarklet that will provide some cut-n-paste code to put at the end of your posts that works wonderfully (in fact, it provides the links at the bottom of the posts on this site). It works great, and you can get it here.
Once you’ve got the bookmarklet sitting in your Firefox or Flock toolbar (‘cos I *KNOW* you’re not *STILL* using IE, right?), the order of operations (well, the way I’m doing it) is:
- Write your post
- Create a custom “Post Slug”, which becomes part of the link to your post. I’d like to not have to do this, but don’t know a workaround for the moment.
- Click the “Code” tab on the post editor
- Click the bookmarklet, enter the post slug you created, and click “ok”
- Cut-n-paste the resulting code at the end of your post
