Sharing the Nonsense

I've been playing around a bit more with my blogs (I'm trying to stay up-to-speed on Wordpress, Blogger and Posterous), and just found a feature that I love.  As most of us know, the Big 3 things to remember are to make your content easy to:
  • Find
  • Consume; and
  • Share
I'm not going to address the first two here, but the third one is critical.  I've been using an "addthis" button for years, but the truth of the matter is that most of the time, people don't want to push more than one button to share content.  I knew that I wanted to make it easier to share the content on this blog (and I know that all five of my readers have been clamoring for the same thing) but have been having trouble making it happen.  I'm not really very confident with my html skills, and I was having a hard time finding a sharing widget that was a) easily customizable and b) easy to get into the html code for this site.  Well, I found one.  Share This has created a sharing widget that is super-easy to customize, and so easy to get into your code that a moron could do it (one just did, obviously).

All you have to do is to pick your blogging service, select the display you'd prefer, pick the services you'd like to highlight, and then click a button to add the code to your blog.  Voila!  As you can see below, the Nonsense is now easier to share than ever!
