If you ever visit this site directly (rather than viewing it through an RSS reader) you may have noticed that I added Facebook Like and Google +1 buttons on the individual post pages. I know that a lot of people find these sort of thing grating, and I apologize. It’s not that I suddenly became a fan of “social media integration” type stuff. I just noticed that sometimes these things may help you get some exposure. These days having your post “liked”, “+1′d” or tweeted is sort of tantamount to word of mouth promotion.
These little buttons are rather unobtrusive, they don’t make you log in, they don’t track you – they are just there. Feel free to ignore them. But if they can grant me a few extra hits from your social circle, then then having them is worth it. So if you do have a social networking account, and you do share interesting links with friends from time to time, I would be grateful if you would hit that like or +1 button from time to time. Only on the posts you really like of course.
Oh, and this does not count as a Monday post. It is a spur of the moment Sunday thing, so a regular post is going to go up tomorrow morning as usual.
