sharing

There are many ‘sharing’ plugins for WordPress to help readers submit posts to Twitter, Delicious and other similar sites. I was looking for a plugin that I could change the icons on and add larger ones for the LottyBox blog so the submit links would be nice and clear. The links below show what I found specifically the Socialable plugin and the large Social me icons.  I was also helped by some handy CSS for adding larger icons.

  • In 1998 there were just a handful of sites of the type that are now identified as weblogs (so named by Jorn Barger in December 1997). Jesse James Garrett, editor of Infosift, began compiling a list of "other sites like his" as he found them in his travels around the web. In November of that year, he sent that list to Cameron Barrett. Cameron published the list on Camworld, and others maintaining similar sites began sending their URLs to him for inclusion on the list. Jesse's 'page of only weblogs' lists the 23 known to be in existence at the beginning of 1999.
