add a Retweet button on your blog or site

found this cool script that you can add to your websites or blogs.  By others clicking on it... it will retweet your blog & it will count clicks too.

you can see it on one of my blogs:  http://www.apronmadness.blogspot.com

Thanks, Shelly.

I was going to use a graphic, but I like yours better for my blogs.

That's cool. We have been using/offering a script for this purpose on our website for a while now. I'm just curious why they chose "retweet" instead of "tweet" since technically to RT is to tweet something previously tweeted. I know, I'm nitpicking. sorry.  :nana :h0161

Yeah, that's a good question. I hope "retweet" isn't going to become the new euphemism for "pass it on."

I already use an AddThis button but I wonder if adding a Twitter-specific button might be a good idea also...

That's true cuz when you hit the button... it does not add the RT in the tweet itself. I think I can customize it... I'll have to go back over & see.   Oh well... I like that little counter.
I just love Gadgets PERIOD.  I could have a blog with just all gadgets! :0240
