Social Bookmarking in Blogger - promote your site

Getting Rich: Social Bookmarking on Blogger Beta:

"Social Bookmarking on Blogger Beta

Social bookmarking will bring plenty of traffic to your blog. Sites like Digg, Furl, Delicious, Reddit, etc. are ways to post bookmarks to your favorite websites with short descriptions so other people can find them. Typically, there is a voting system involved so that once a submitted website gets enough votes, it shows up on the front page of the social bookmarking site. Once sites make it to the front page, they typically experience something close to or the actual 'digg effect.'

Essentially what this means is that you'll get thousands of hits and possibly your site could stall, or in some cases even crash. We all pray for that much traffic! One way to help potential bookmarkers Digg or Furl your site is to give them a single-click link from a blog entry.

The problem for a huge amount of people now is that Blogger has switched to a different code format with its recent upgrade, and it was aggravating me that I could not find the answer. Once I figured it out, it was glorious. Any, for all those of you who are where I was, you can now rejoice."

Code follows this - and is specific, useful.
