A while ago I discovered a new option in the settings of my blogs on WordPress.com : Share . This new screen on your desktop allows – finally – to offer a simple system for your readers to share your tickets in the most common social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit), in addition to printing, send by email or re-publish your entries with the controversial system we talked about at the time .
The system used is the Sharedaddy plugin and you just have to drag and drop the icons that you want to offer and, under an icon of " Share " will appear in your entries or where you define, simple and effective.
This new feature, so long expected, will be a tremendous boost for blogs hosted on WordPress.com because it greatly facilitates the task of promoting content, something that Automattic is working on a lot lately, and we congratulate ourselves for that.
We all like to have a site with a differentiating aspect but there are many occasions when it may be interesting to have a design that imitates famous websites.

You can do it really easy, like everything in WordPress, with a simple plugin called " Vote it up ", a great system to add a voting system to your posts.
] Once you install it, a button with numbering is added to each post so that your readers can vote, both positively and negatively, and many more things that you can configure in the options panel of the plugin, such as the appearance of the button, which users can vote, etc.
To appear the button in your posts you must add the following code in the 'loop':
You can also use the most voted posts widget or add it directly in your template with this code:  In short, a very complete plugin that will add to your blog a really interesting functionality, especially indicated for sites of analysis of products, downloads or any element susceptible of valuation by your readers.
A few hours after the release of the new social network Yahoo Buzz a site like Digg or menéame where you can ] promote your stories so that, with luck, they get to the cover of, not already Buzz but of the same Yahoo homepage there is already a plugin to be able to vote for your blog posts and appearing in Yahoo Buzz .
The plugin WPBuzz developed by Travis Johnson even before the publication opened of Yahoo Buzz it is very easy to install – like any other, and also has options page for you to configure it to your liking.

The template WordPress Digg 3 columns is a great theme that superbly mimics the structure and appearance of the popular site Digg.com but adapted to the necessary use in a blog. It is a classic theme but essential and very well structured.
