After trying different methods to add “Digg this”, “Stumble this!” and similar buttons, I’ve decided that MyFolia’s approach is the best. This neat bookmarks appear in the far bottom of every post, and allow to bookmark the current post in any of these websites (Digg, Reddit, del.icio.us, Facebook, technorati, Google and StumbleUpon).
