Add Share Buttons to Your Posts

Have you ever seen those share buttons at the end of blog posts? Those little social network icons are a new feature that Blogger came out with not too long ago and they're fantastic to have! When you read a great post that you'd like to tell others about, just click on those links and easily share that post. I'm going to show you how to get the share buttons on your blog.

How to add share buttons to your blog:

Go to your blog dashboard and click on the Layout page. We're going to be working with the box that represents your blog posts. Click the 'Edit' button in the bottom right hand corner.
The "Configure Blog Posts" box will pop up and you will see a section that says "Show Share Buttons". Make sure that box is clicked and save.
That's it! You'll now have social media share buttons that will pop up automatically after you publish each post.
Sometimes if you have a custom blog layout you won't be able to see the share buttons. That's easy to fix though. If you don't see them on your blog still, you just need to do one more step! Click here to find out how to make the share buttons show through your custom layout.
