How to add a Retweet button to Blogger, and My top ten posts - so far....

As you can now see, there is a shiny retweet button at the bottom of my posts. This is courtersy of Tweetmeme

I did find the instructions on their site, here, a bit crap and instead followed the instructions over here at Blogger Resources

One thing I would add, is make sure, you add <br> in edit html to the natural end of your posts, so it displays correctly. I am not going to go back and do this for all ninety posts on this blog, but I thought I would make sure, my ten most popular pages were formatted correctly.

 Check the comments for some advice on how to place this in the date/comment section

Add the following line

tweetmeme_source = 'tweetmeme';

Replacing tweetmeme with your twitter username, so the posts come up @yourusername when tweeted.

Out of interest, here is the countdown to my top ten posts - handy if you are after some hang over sunday reading.

  1. Chance,

    Terrifically helpful, thanks.

    Just been playing around with this... looks like if you place the script code down a bit, within the span class of the code for the housekeeping stuff at the bottom, you can force the button to be right next to the date, comments, links, etc., instead of up in the body of the posting.

    That removes the need for the br tag on each post.
