How to Add Desteni & Sharing Buttons to Your Blog

Postby Leila » 22 Jul 2012, 10:41

Here's the 7 YearJourney to Life Blogging for Dummies - written and compiled by Viktor Persson

Download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/67oye6500 ... ummies.pdf


Note: I wrote this out for Blogger only, Wordpress will work differently though you can use the same codes / websites

Sharing Buttons with Sharethis.com
• Make sure that you are logged in to your blogger account – but the page does not have to be open
• Go to http://www.sharethis.com
• Click on “GET THE BUTTON”
• Select the Blogger icon
• Click NEXT: Step 2. Pick a Style -->
• Select the second option [horizontal buttons with counts]
• Click NEXT: Step 3. Customize -->
• On this page you can drag and drop the various service providers such as for instance Pinterest to the box with Selected Services
• Go through the list within the Standard Services box and drag and drop the ones you want
• Do not use the Google+ option from the Standard Services – it doesn’t work very well – instead use the Google+ option from the Add-ons box
• Also add the Facebook like button from the same Add-ons box
• When you are done press FINISH: Get the Code
• A Register window will appear – don’t fill anything in if you don’t want to, you can click on No thanks, just give me the code!
• Pick either Multi Post or Direct Post and press Go!
• A new page opens on blogger
• Press Add Widget
• Save your new blog Arrangement
• View your blog to see what it looks like

Adding ShareThis Buttons directly through HTML Gadget
• Go to your blogger menu and press ‘layout’
• This page gives you a structural layout of what your blog looks like
• Press on “Add a Gadget” where you would want the buttons to be positioned
• A new window opens up with gadget options, select the one that says HTML/JavaScript
• A window opens up with to text fields Title and Content
• Copy Paste the following code into the content box (this will add the following buttons: Facebook Share, Facebook Like, Google +, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, StumbleUpon and Pinterest):

Code: Select all

<span id="st_finder"></span><script type="text/javascript" src="http://w.sharethis.com/widget/stblogger2.js"></script><script type="text/javascript">var switchTo5x=true;stBlogger2.init("http://w.sharethis.com/button/buttons.js", {"facebook":["hcount","Facebook",""],"fblike":["hcount","Facebook Like",""],"plusone":["hcount","Google +1",""],"twitter":["hcount","Tweet",""],"reddit":["hcount","Reddit",""],"digg":["hcount","Digg",""],"stumbleupon":["hcount","StumbleUpon",""],"pinterest":["hcount","Pinterest",""]} );var f = document.getElementById("st_finder");var c = f.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes;for (i=0;i<c.length;i++) { try { c[i].style.display = "none"; } catch (err) {}}</script>
• Save and the buttons are added.

If the sharethis.com method does not work, please try the next option

Sharing Buttons with Addthis
• Go to http://www.addthis.com
• Click on ‘Get the Code’
• Select ‘Blogger’ (or whatever blogging platform you use)
• Pick the style you want (I prefer the first one, as it gives you a count as well)
• Press ‘Install Blogger Widget’
• This takes you to a Blogger ‘Add Page Element’ Page
• Press ‘Add Widget’
• Done!

Adding the Desteni, DIP, Eqafe, EMS logo buttons
• Log in to your blogger dashboard [http://www.blogger.com/home]
• Go to your blogger menu and press ‘layout’
• This page gives you a structural layout of what your blog looks like
• Press on “Add a Gadget” where you would want the buttons to be positioned
• A new window opens up with gadget options, select the one that says HTML/JavaScript
• A window opens up with to text fields Title and Content
• You can Give the gadget a Title such as ‘Important Websites’ or you can leave it blank – the only downside to leaving HTML/Javascript gadgets without a title is that you end up with lots of HTML/JavaScript boxes on your layout page and you might have trouble keeping them apart in terms of which box contains which specific code / button(s)
• Copy/Paste the following code into the content box:

Code: Select all

<table width="76" border="0"> <tr> <td width="32"><a href="http://www.desteni.org" target="_blank"><img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OYLMgtwvYww/T5w_HRQW4uI/AAAAAAAAAEk/HptyISaFqYo/s1600/DES.png" width="52" height="50" /></a></td> <td width="28"><a href="http://www.eqafe.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OuKIGGx5gHw/T5w_VN5J_cI/AAAAAAAAAE8/I-fLqGhndLA/s1600/EQAF.png" width="54" height="54" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="http://www.equalmoney.org" target="_blank"><img src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-8dHpFOwdy3c/T5w_Q37sO-I/AAAAAAAAAE0/Kbm5XLaCZNc/s1600/EM.png" width="54" height="50" /></a></td> <td><a href="http://www.desteniiprocess.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-doGYCE993gY/T5w_J8YbIyI/AAAAAAAAAEs/RDEoq341Tqc/s1600/DIP.png" width="90" height="50" /></a></td> </tr> </table>
• Save and the buttons are added.
• Preview your blog to see if the buttons appear correctly and whether you like where they are located
o If you don’t like where they are you can drag this specific gadget box around in the lay out page to a different position and then save this new layout


Adding Heavens’s , Creation’s and Earth’s Journey to Life and DIP Lite Buttons
• Follow the exact same steps as for adding the DIP, EMS, EQAFE, Desteni buttons – but instead copy/paste the following code:

Code: Select all

<table width="200" border="0"> <tr> <td><a href="http://lite.desteniiprocess.com//"><img src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ewq8bTByEEs/WXTPIKZ_3rI/AAAAAAAASQc/g6TBAxk4GP4wUXg_HZ2-1ZQnUf4ZmAVuQCLcBGAs/s1600/DIPLite.png" alt="DIP Lite Course" width="200" height="60" longdesc="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ewq8bTByEEs/WXTPIKZ_3rI/AAAAAAAASQc/g6TBAxk4GP4wUXg_HZ2-1ZQnUf4ZmAVuQCLcBGAs/s1600/DIPLite.png" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="http://heavensjourneytolife.blogspot.com/"><img src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Z8bWTYmbOCg/WXTMhaT2SGI/AAAAAAAASQQ/gLAYMKJCe34aNk7p6T_5ys8yAQRC1I0YwCLcBGAs/s1600/hjtl.png" alt="Heaven's journey to life" width="200" height="60" longdesc="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Z8bWTYmbOCg/WXTMhaT2SGI/AAAAAAAASQQ/gLAYMKJCe34aNk7p6T_5ys8yAQRC1I0YwCLcBGAs/s1600/hjtl.png" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="http://creationsjourneytolife.blogspot.com/"><img src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-BcGWliHgTr4/T5kx5g5tddI/AAAAAAAAADM/RGZs-NSTT-M/s300/cjtl.png" alt="Creation's journey to life" width="200" height="60" longdesc="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bcgwlihgtr4/t5kx5g5tddi/aaaaaaaaadm/rgzs-nstt-m/s300/cjtl.png" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="http://earthsjourneytolife.wordpress.com//"><img src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UqdIcI77qb0/WXTPIJtaWSI/AAAAAAAASQg/PHLf9OWCAXwPobNYBm6Gh-BDvOvqP5FWwCLcBGAs/s1600/ejtl.png" alt="Earth's Journey to Life" width="200" height="60" longdesc="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UqdIcI77qb0/WXTPIJtaWSI/AAAAAAAASQg/PHLf9OWCAXwPobNYBm6Gh-BDvOvqP5FWwCLcBGAs/s1600/ejtl.png" /></a></td> </tr> </table>

Cool Leila, thanks for this article. So I can add, I'm sending messages to all bloggers that doesn't have social network buttons, and so suggesting to put images in their entries so then we are able to submit the entry to pinterest, If anyone want to join the cause, welcome lol.
Thanks for share. I suggest to install the social networks buttons in order to share your blog in pinterest, reddit, stumbleupon, etc. Link here: http://sharethis.com/
and
Thanks for share. I suggest to put images in your entries in order to submit your entries to pinterest.
and for wordpress - that have their own social networks buttons
Thanks for share. I suggest to put on links for share in pinterest, digg, tumblr and so many social networks as is possible, so then all we can share your entries in many ways and spread the word.
Greetings.

If the sharethis.com website gives you trouble, you can also use addthis.com

I edited the first post to include the Addthis procedure, as I and others were having problems with sharethis

Update: I added another method in the first post, where you can add the ShareThis buttons (Facebook Share, Facebook Like, Google +, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, StumbleUpon and Pinterest) through copying the code into HTML/Javascript Gadget

Easy Blog Sharing

Postby Leila » 20 Sep 2012, 23:09

Here's a method one can use in making the Blog Sharing process easier after having posted a blog:

Bookmark the following links:
http://destonians.com/
http://www.digg.com/submit
http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit
viewforum.php?f=75 <-- This is the Journey To Life Sub-Forum

Right click on your (bookmark) toolbar in your browser.
Create a 'New Folder'
Give the Folder a name like 'Sharing'
Go your list of all your Bookmarks and drag the above links/pages into your 'Sharing' Folder

Now whenever you have posted a blog you can either click on the folder with your mouse-scrolling button (this will open all the pages in new tabs) or right click on the folder and select 'Open all in tabs'
While you have your blog open you can simply go and paste your blog link / content on all the pages -- it only takes about a minute or so.

Also install the Stumble Upon Toolbar and the Pinterest button into your toolbar so you can click these to submit your blog when viewing your blog after posting.

Make a habit of doing this little procedure each time you post a blog. It makes the sharing process easier if each one submit their own blogs on the various networking/sharing websites. It only takes a minute if each one does their own whereas it can take up quite a bit of time for a few people to submit a lot of links ( 1 + 1 + 1 .... = lots of minutes)

Also, one can share directly from one's specific post with the sharing buttons on the bottom of the post.

I've got reddit, twitter, digg, google +, stumbleupon, pinterest, facebook and the general 'share this' button that shares at other sites right on my blog that I use.

I do however bookmark both destonians.com and the forum to place my links.

If you do not yet have these share buttons on your blog, you can get them at http://www.sharethis.com
