Adding Social Book Marking to your Blog Posts

I'm new to blogging, and frankly got started like most people by blogging for an audience of close family and friends. My audience has been slowly expanding and as my addicition to share my thoughts and opinions with the world at-large grows I find I increasingly want to spruce up my page. One day I may actually dig in and create my own page design, but for now I'll just stick to the free backgrounds I find at Cutest Blog on The Block.

My latest adventure in sprucing up my page had to do with adding the social networking buttons to the bottom of my posts. Mostly becuase I wanted to be able to easily share my own posts with my facebook friends without having to copy the URL and paste it to facebook. So I Googled how to do it and dug and read and researched and FINALLY found a page that gave me step-by-step holding my hand directions. LOVE IT!! So now I have the share this post icon at the bottom of each post. If don't know what I'm talking about it's this icon:

Go ahead and hover your mouse over huh? I'm no genious, I just followed this Blog Doctor guy's instructions.

Happy Blogging!

I'm pretty bad at figuring out how to do most of these things too. I recently had someone design a new blog header for me, but had no idea how to install it!

You're WAY more tech savvy than I am - I couldn't follow those directions to save my life, I'm sure. I'm trying to figure out how to get a stat counter on my blog...I think I'm going to give up! haha!

I found a stat counter but the problem is it counts my visits too, so it's not very accurate.
