    Blog post content question
    Hey guys,

    Just a really quick question top help fine tune the content of my blog posts.
    At the end of each post I have been posting.

    follow me...

    Do you think this looks too desperate?

    I see "follow me on Twitter" or "follow me on Facebook." I never thought it sounded desperate.

    Its probably better to have it in one place on a sidebar or at the top of the page, rather than after each post.

    Yeah - you see that all the time on a vast majority of websites across the board - from small websites to the very largest ones. It's a great way to build a base of people and get cross traffic/contacts as well.

    Good luck!

    I don't think I've come across any folks who post the Follow Me links at the end of their posts. Sidebar/footer is a safe bet though, and is almost a universal standard now.

    If your site displays 5 entire posts on the front page, having it in every post may be a bit much. But, if you are showing excerpts, I don't see a problem with having it at the end of each post. And, as a side benefit, people who read your blog via an RSS reader will be reminded that they should follow you via twitter/facebook/etc...

    i would recommend getting clever with it.... create some sort of custom FB and twitter icon to throw on the right side of your pages... draws attention and more people will be inclined to click and follow.

    Wordpress has a plugin that puts all the social networking links on the bottom of each post for you - not just Facebook and Twitter. It's definitely worth it. You never know who'll read your posts and then share it.

    ya... "sexy bookmarks" is the best plugin for that... but I think the question was not to get the post tweeted etc, but to get people to follow them on FB.. twitter etc.

    Be careful with those social bookmarking plugins.
    I tried one last year (can't remember which one), and it added a tremendous amount of code bloat to my pages and slowed their loading time down.

    I love the sexybookmarks plugin, but have it set up to only display on single post pages, not on my home page.

    Plus those links were all showing in the Google results for the posts! So I killed it off. I'll take a look at sexy bookmarks... sounds.... sexy
