Click To Tweet With Gratitude

This is not my Gratitude post for September because I am thankful for what happened today. I could post it in the next month’s Gratitude Hop with Vidya Sury, but I can’t wait that long to tell you my story 🙂

Blog-A-Rhythm is a wonderful blogging community that encourages and supports its members. Click To Tweet

It all started with me wanting to add the ‘Click to Tweet’ button on my blog. I had seen it in many blogs on wordpress but didn’t know how to add it to my site. Today, while reading Sid Balachandran’s blog post ‘Slow down and live more’, I tweeted a couple of profound sentences from his brilliant post. This added fuel to fire and I wanted to have this tiny magical ‘click to tweet’ genie on my blog too.

I googled it but was overwhelmed with the onslaught of information. So I did the next best thing, I posted my query on B-A-R facebook page. I tagged Shailaja and Sid, who were already using this tab in their posts.

This was my query on the facebook page of our blogging group, BlogARhythm (B-A-R)

A technical query how do I add the CLICK to TWEET tab in my blog posts for specific quotes or sentences? Sid Balachandran and Shailaja Vishwanath, noticed them on your blogs

Within a few seconds I received a reply from Shailaja and moments later she sent me the link to the plugin.

Shailaja’s Reply

It’s a plugin, Sulekha. If you are on self-hosted, you should be able to get it easily.

Sid added to the reply by explaining the technical aspects of the plugin.

My question to Sid

I have downloaded the plugin but do I have to put in the code every time I want to tweet a quote or a sentence from my blog posts?

Sid’s reply

Once it is activated, you will get a little tweet icon button where you usually type your post. Just highlight what you want to tweet and click that.- Sid.

This exchange must have taken only a few minutes but the warmth of our conversation and the feeling of belonging to such a wonderful blogging community stayed with me for a long time. It feels nice when your peers offer their support and help when you ask for the same.

A blogging community that lifts its members up and promotes sharing of knowledge. Click To Tweet

  1. BAR is indeed a very accommodating group and I am glad to be a part of it. What I love most is that they don’t believe in demanding. They allow you to move along at your own pace while helping you to sail along. Sid has been a wonderful friend from the very first time I started blogging. And Shailaja, I can’t thank my stars enough for connecting me to her. She’s a living example of how life can be transformed according to our will. She’s always there and reaches out just when I need a friend. Much love to everyone a BAR. And congratulations for successfully installing and using the plugin. I’m gonna do it soon too. 🙂
