How to Add Social Share Buttons to Your Posts

I've been visiting blog after blog over the past few weeks.  Not only am I following as many of them as I can, so many great blogs out there.  I'm also trying to build my following as well.  If we all share our wealth of information with one another, we all win!

One of the things that I noticed on so many of them were the Twitter, Facebook, etc. share buttons on the bottom of posts.  I thought it was a very cool idea and had used them to help promote content on numerous occasions.

After tring too many times to remember, I finally figure out how to get those to show on my blog posts!  I'm very excited about it.  So excited that I wanted to share the steps with you.  It really wasn't as difficult as I has assumed it was.  It just took a littke investigating and snooping around my settings.

So, here is how to add the social media share buttons on your blog posts!

> Design
> Page Elements
> Blog Posts (edit)
> Show Share Button
> Save

I hope this was helpful!
