How to Add Your Social Media Buttons to Your #AtoZChallenge Posts

Today's tip is from An Unconventional Alliance Team Member Rajlakshmi who blogs at A Twinkle Eyed Traveller

I know you all are super busy writing, scheduling, bookmarking and drinking coffee in tons and gallons, so I will keep it really short and crisp.

Since A to Z April Challenge is a great opportunity to connect with bloggers around the world, here's few more tips to help you increase your social media visibility and highlight your talents.
1) Pinterest Pin It Button on Image - The Pin It button appears on the image when you hover your mouse over it. This makes it extremely easy for readers to share your beautiful captures on Pinterest. Check out the steps provided in this tutorial (

2) Instagram Widget - If you are an Instagram addict like me then you gotta have this on your blog. Simple to configure and easy to use. Check here - How to Add Instagram Widget (

3) Facebook Page Like Box-  This can either be added as a widget on the sidebar or it could appear as a pop up when your site loads. Click here for widget - and here for Page load -

Best of luck for the challenge!!
May the the force be with you.

  3. Thanks, you have saved many of us so much time finding these gadgets.

  4. Thanks Pam, timely information. I have changed sites this year and am going through the pain of setting everything up again, and of course Blogger is not co-operating - feedly button is currently driving me nuts, but I did manage to get the #atozchallenge challenge badge on there. Now to test if my social media buttons are working.

  8. Flat Belly Overnight Review

    It has been observed to naturally encourage the production of collagen in the inner skin that can stimulate the overall skin for several months. However, it's best advised to take the treatment in facilities that are authorized by the government and house experienced and skilled practitioners. A typical plastic surgery on the face can easily cost a patient several thousand dollars. In contrast, the average lifting surgery could be done in a few hundred dollars.


    Most musicians must be familiar with hitting "walls" in various aspects of their playing. For example they may find they simply cannot increase the speed of a passage to the desired level even with extra practice and effort. This is a likely reason that many stop playing musical instruments altogether, becoming frustrated, overwhelmed and believing that music simply isn't for them. It's my belief that it's sometimes not mental will or effort that is to blame, but the method of practice.

    I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET any moe curly, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic girl passed-away at 17.

    "Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3

    Here's what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

    Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
    See you Upstairs...
    I won't be joining'm in da nasty Abyss

    PS While nobody's as brilliant as Dean Koontz, you never know what you might ordain to publish. Need some new fangled thots, ideers, names? "Step right up, me lad," cried the carnival barker: if I'm the sower, we plant the Seed; if I'm the artist, we write the Word. Lemme gonna gitcha started:

    Oak Woods, Athena Noble, Autumn Rose, Faith Bishop, Dolly Martin, Willow Rhodes, Cocoa Major, China Stone, Bullwark Burnhart, Magnus Wilde, Kardiak Arrest, Will Wright, Goldy Silvers, Sophie Sharp, Gloria Hood, Violet Snow, Lizzy Roach, BoxxaRoxx, Aunty Dotey, Romero Stark, Zachariah Neptoon ...

    God blessa youse
