Bookmark Me!

In these posts recently I gave you the opportunity to Search Me and Contact Me.

Well, now I've added the opportunity to bookmark my blog or any particular post on it as well. If you look at the end of this - or any - post on the blog, you should see an Addthis widget similar to the one below.
If you're a regular web user, chances are you will have seen this before on blogs and websites. Basically, if you click on it, it will allow you to save the blog post (or blog/website) concerned to social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, Furl and StumbleUpon.

These sites allow you to save your favorite websites online, so you can access them from any computer. In most cases you can also review the sites concerned and share them with others. You do, of course, have to register at social bookmarking sites before you can use them.

I hope you will find this a useful extra feature. And obviously, from a personal point of view, I hope you will use it to bookmark your favorite posts on here, as this will help bring them to the attention of a wider public and boost their search engine ratings.

One small thing I've discovered, though. If you want to bookmark a particular post, it's best if you go first to the dedicated page for it (you can do this by clicking on the title of the post concerned). Otherwise, the address entered by the widget will be the 'bare' blog URL, i.e. That will help boost my blog rankings, but may not be much good to you if rather than the whole blog it's a particular article you want to save/share.
