    It’s all about making it easy for your visitors to do “stuff.” From sharing to commenting and anything else you want them to do. I had the side bar and I disabled it because it wasn’t visible. I even hired a developer to edit the code to make it visible and he couldn’t do anything with it. I observed that your sidebar doesn’t follow the visitor (thank you very much) and it moves towards the right when you put the mouse on it. Your sidebar makes it easy for your visitors to share without being annoying. Did you edit the code?

    My good friend Laura Hill just recommended your site on FB – probably used one of your handy sharing buttons to do so ;)

    I haven’t found my readers sharing much because, I believe, they aren’t using a lot of these tools (twitter, stumble, etc.) in general. For example I also use CommentLuv premium and almost none of my commenters are bloggers. But I’m totally going to steal your “pin this” button idea because lots of my Mom readers are avid Pinterest users and I had never considered explicitly telling them to pin stuff. Thanks for the tip!

    Thank you for all the helpful hints, Michelle. I can’ t use all of them yet because I don’t have a website, but I”m featured on many author websites, since I’ve written 4 children;s books.

    Hi Michelle, Great video! I agree, sharing is caring and the easier you can make sharing, the better for you and for your readers.

    I have just started using Share Juice as my sharing plugin and really like the functionality of it. You can do both a sharing sidebar and buttons on the bottom and top from one plugin.

    Off to share this post!

    Keeping things simple is the key to getting things done. If we over complicate or make things too difficult we can confuse readers so much that they do nothing. I added “Add this” to my blog- what I love about it is that it shows the number of shares and it emails analytics weekly.
