Have you noticed that some blogs on WordPress dot com have the StumbleUpon button but when you go look at your sharing settings, you can’t find the option to add StumbleUpon? Have you wondered how they did it? It is super easy to do and this tutorial will show you how you can add the StumbleUpon social sharing icon button in less than a minute.
10 STEPS TO ADD A STUMBLEUPON ICON TO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SHARING BUTTONS ON WORDPRESS.COM
1.Find a free of copyright, StumbleUpon icon image that you want to use and upload it to your media files on your blog. Resize the image to 16px X 16px.
2.On your dashboard, go to settings, then click on sharing.
3.Click on “Add a new service”.
You should now see a pop up like this:
4.For Service Name, enter “StumbleUpon”.
5.Copy the following URL and paste on the line, “Sharing URL”.
6.Copy and paste the URL for the media file uploaded in step one on the line, “Icon URL”.
7.You should now see StumbleUpon in your list of available services. Drag it to the “Enabled Services” section.
8.Arrange your social sharing buttons and choose a display style.
9.Click to save changes.
10.Test your new StumbleUpon button.
You can repeat this process for any other social sharing buttons you are missing and wish to have. You may have to test and change the target URL to get the correct sharing process.
For example, the following URL is for Flipboard.
Now that you have the StumbleUpon button, you should learn how to use the platform correctly. My bloggy friend Laura from Skinny & Single, has been really successful with getting tons of traffic to her blog from SU. Here is a quick and easy post explaining how she uses StumbleUpon for her blog.
