I already share interesting posts with my friends on Google Reader using the share button (or the email button if it’s for someone in particular), but I’ve never really gotten into Digg or other social bookmarking sites. I don’t think that my blog is very popular (yet?) and so it doesn’t seem like a very necessary step for me at this point, but I figured I’d try it out to see how it works. I went through the wordpress.com FAQ page and found a site that instructs how to manually add the assorted bookmarking links if you are hosted at wordpress.com (and how to have it add automatically if you host your own wordpress blog).
So I tried it for my last post, and I’m going to try it again on this post. I welcome advice or suggestions about doing this. Is it considered tacky? Or good blogging practice? I have to admit, I haven’t heard of a few of the sites that I have included in the list. There’s even a larger list of many of those sites here. As a blogger, do I have to be a member of all these groups for you to bookmark the sites? I am a member of Technorati (and that’s not even one of the options below, hmmm). And how do I know when a post or site has been bookmarked at one of these sites?
So many questions. I just wanted to try it out. Let me know if the comments if this should stay or go!
