Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Share Button Problem Solved

Earlier this year I wrote about a share button problem I was having on some of my blogs. Blogger makes it very easy to add the share button code simply by toggling the code on. I did that but then noticed over writing on the buttons that said 'This!istrock' or similar. I searched through the code on the affected blogs only to come up empty handed. Yet the code was behaving perfectly on one of my blogs. Still, it appeared the code had somehow been hacked. After a scare that caused me to change my passwords, I decided to take action on the share buttons. The thing is there was a problem with them and for all I know could have been some back entry method to get into my Blogger account. Who knows. All I knew is that code had to go! After a bit of work and troubleshooting, I finally managed to get the old code off my blogs and replaced it with new code from ShareThis. Social networking and sharing is becoming increasing important. The ShareThis buttons make it easy to customize where you want your content shared including to the newest social network, Pinterest. The code is customizable with respect to button size and alignment as well. In the end, I like the design of the new share buttons. So the problem is solved but I still don't know how it happened.
