Twitter is everywhere these days, so you never know when an avalanche of Twitter traffic will skyrocket your blog into the stratosphere. Encourage Twitter users to blast your posts out to their friends with the 'Tweet This' button.

Here's how:

  1. Go to Blogs > (Your Blog) > Design > Content. The Content page displays.
  2. Be sure you have Post Footer checked. Click on the Pencil icon for Post Footer. A pop-up displays.
  3. Check the checkbox for 'Tweet This'.

    check the box for tweetthis

    If you'd like this to appear as a button (instead of just a link), select the box to 'Show footer links as buttons?'.
  4. Click OK and the pop-up closes.
  5. Save Changes.
  6. View your blog to verify that the Tweet This button appears at the end of each post.
