I’ve never really been into the social bookmarking scene. I have a del.icio.us account that I used regularly for a short time and haven’t really used since.
Recently I installed madKast, but I was disappointed when it messed up my blog theme. I gave it several weeks while I waited for a reply to my email(s) and maybe to see what the analytics had to offer, but I got neither so I’ve removed it. I have noticed that lots of blogs have shortcuts to bookmarking via del.icio.us, StumbleUpon, Digg and others and I thought some of the mechanisms for doing so were quite spiffy and not too intrusive. The plugins that I’ve seen in particular are Share This and Sociable. Both of which look crap on my blog! Sociable icons get highlighted in red, which is just because of my css and could be fixed, but it also does this scary php errors thing on the admin page whenever you stray away from the default settings. Share This doesn’t seem to line up the icon and link properly, so the link text overlaps the icon. The names of the sites also won’t appear next to the icons in Share This and I can’t figure out how to fix it.
Update: As you can probably see I got Sociable to work. It’s quite cute. 🙂
