After spending a good deal of time on Steve Rubel's blog I got to noticing that he had a bunch of cool social media stuff in the footer of each post... Technorati links, Digg, delicious, etc.
Using Typepad for my blog, as does Steve, of course I wanted to have all that as well. So, I searched under the hood of his blog to view the source code and found that he was using Feedburner's FeedFlare component to add the functionality.
If you're using Typepad and would like to do the same, it's really very easy. Just follow the steps outlined in the two following videos:
Video #1: Setting up FeedFlare in Feedburner (4 MB; 3:13)
Video #2: Activating FeedFlare in Typepad (1 MB; 47 sec)
Disregarding the fact that I need to polish up my video presentation/narration skills, I hope you found this helpful. In all honesty, I'd like to do more of this sort of thing to add some instructional value. I've been reluctant to do so in the past because I'm not a technical writer and doing "how-to" posts has never been my strong suit. But, with video screen capture (I'm using Jing btw), it's much easier.
