So I am doing some remodeling and one of the things I was never happy with were my social links at the bottom. Here they are for your enjoyment one last time.
I thought about something that was more consistent. I played around with a bunch of different options and then I found a cool tutorial from PSHERO that shows you how to use Photoshop (George) to create your own Vanity License Plate. I thought it would be cool to test it out for a while as my social bookmark links.
Here is what I came up with. (Does lose something when you decrease the size but I’ll keep it until I come up with something new)
Now the questions are:
1. Do you ever actually click on anyone’s (mine especially) social bookmark links?
2. For my cartoons I tend to put these three Twitter, Digg and StumbleUpon as the highlighted bookmarks and then use a tool called GetSocial (great for wordpress.com users) to put the bar at the bottom with a whole bunch. If you are prone to click on social bookmark links are there some you tend to use more than others? (ie facebook)?
3. Are the new ones too big or in your face??
you were a day early and a dollar short.
new post has arrived.
Your gonna be rich off your talent. These are lovely.
i dont even know what those things do….
Here is what they do. When I post a cartoon or something and they are there just click it.
That was the short answer.
If you have a Twitter account and you click the Tweet one, it will automatically create a post for you in twitter.
Digg (which you may have to have an account) and StumbleUpon are kind of popularity sites. You click it if you like something. The more clicks, then the more people will be exposed to my post potentially.
I like them, but I can’t click on them?
That’s b/c I didn’t activate any of them. I wasn’t going to spread the word that I wanted to spread the word.
I’ll make them active for real posts.
Blahahahahahahaha that was so funny 🙂 🙂
I like it..:)
they arent working bearman, when i click them nothing happens…
Blahahahahaha stop it you are killing me 🙂 🙂 🙂
Not activated in this post.
Geez Bearman, enough with the dandruff already . One friggin chunk nearly knocked my “f” over!!!!
Hmm, well I won’t be clicking yours if they don’t friggin work!!!! 🙂
I hate having to log in when I click them. I never remember my friggin passwords for starters. They need to improve the time wasting aspect for it to work. We are busy people Bearman 🙂 I think it could be a conspiracy!!!
That’s why I like stumble. You don’t have to log in to say you like it.
I use them to Retweet and Stumble I like them very much:-)
Thanks. They are now for sale cheap. Free to anyone who wants them.
1. Sometimes. I follow you on twitter
2. I use facebook
3. I actually think they are very subtle. I like them.
CC alive and well. Nice to see you CC.
i pressed them…. is it supposed to be doing nothing?
Yeah Bearman, nothin happens 🙁
What you are kidding? They don’t?
What’s the point of having them if they don’t work. I got all excited…for nothing. Do you give your kids empty boxes for Christmas?
Well when I have had posts where they were working, you didn’t click them. Were you one of those kids who got tons of things handed to you at Christmas and then yelled “is that all?”
Don’t hate me because I don’t know how to Tweet, Digg, or Stumble unless I am really drunk.
And yes, I am that kid. When Oprah gave me a car, I said, “Blue? Are you fu**ing kidding me? A blue car?”
I sometimes click on yours or other people’s social bookmark links (usually Delicious or Twitter). Most times, I just use the bookmarklet buttons in my browser. Delicious is my personal favourite for social bookmarking.
I like the new buttons. A change is usually good. But of course, it’s ultimately up to you whether to keep them or not. I was happy with the old ones, btw. Unique to your site only.
I’m gonna check out that GetSocial thing. Thanks for linking.
I’ll have to check into Delicious. Right now I am thinking of dumping Digg and replacing with Facebook or now Del.
AGAC. Ain’t Got A Clue. Well I’ve got a clue. I try to click on some of these things and sometimes they do something and sometimes they don’t.
I thinkin’ of registering on twitter but I really don’t know what I am doing and then when I learn, at my age you sometimes forget.
What were we discussing again?
Very nice. I would want one for my car, but the Stumble one might send my Mazda off a cliff.
It’s snowing!! 🙂
I like them, and prefer them. To answer your question, I never click on social share stuff, mainly because I don’t have Digg or SU accounts, etc. I don’t even know how they work.
The new plates look nice! Did you make those in Sing-Sing? 🙂
Although I don’t click on links per say, but I will occasionally search people out on Facebook to see if they’re interesting in friending me.
I know…I don’t want to set up a facebook toon page. I am updating way to many places as it is.
Updating!!! Blahahahahahahaha we are lucky to get a post from you once a week and don’t get me started on those friggin cartoons 🙁
I’ve been clicking on the damned things for the better part of an hour now Bearman and I haven’t heard a single tweet. I think you need to turn up the volume. I’ll keep at it, though, lad.
The look good. I like the consistent approach. I never use the buttons. I’ve never tried twitter and really have no idea about stumbling, digging, redditing or anything else.
Keep at Mr Mills, it will eventually work you just have to be persistent !
I don’t use those social networks, but have nothing against them. The car plates work though.
Cool…I’ll keep them for a while.
The plates are uber-cool, Bearman.
I don’t understand the whole Digg thing, maybe you could do a post explaining it to me?
Not if I dump digg for something else..haha
nice… I’m gonna have to check this out!
I don’t use any of the social network stuff as I am more than a tadge antisocial. However, the ‘number plate’ buttons look very clean, simple and almost inviting enough to push (I know, coming in this late, these feckers are examples not live, duuhhhh, we brits ain’t that stupid, well apart from…)
My ‘morning ward round’ of regular blogs takes me about an hour, longer when Loon and Duncan haven’t copied each other, and is my bestest way to start the day. I have found some fascinating places to call on, many from links in what others call blogroll or some such. Perhaps in need to post up my list to support what I consider to be good stuff?
Isn’t it so true that Loon and Duncan copy each other. As if they can’t find another site to steal from..haha
