New Toys To Share The List

Last week, I came upon some new features from WordPress.com that should help you share this list with others. I would like feedback on their effectiveness.

They are at the blog’s end (or should be).

Earlier, I had added a “Tweet” button that should let you tweet the list on Twitter. There is a counter to show the number of tweets.

Now, there are buttons for e-mailing, printing the list, Digg and StumbleUpon.

Also, before the comment box, there should be a button with a gold star and “Like” to show you like this blog. This could only be a feature for those using WordPress.com.

As always, if you attend a listed event, we would like your thoughts and to learn if it is worth keeping on this list.

OH, by the way, I have been compiling this list for a year!
