Your blog is so good you need social bookmarking icons on every post!

Maybe you’ve seen the below pictured icons on a blog or website before. They generally follow every single blog post suggesting that the site owner thinks all their writings are so good that every reader should graciously submit every single post to a social bookmarking site with the end result of increasing traffic. Doesn’t sound as glamorous or effective when put that way, does it? And when is the last time you actually used one of these after reading a post?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with with self-submitting or suggesting a worthy blog post or article to be socially bookmarked. I just think most bloggers are presumptions.

Digg this post. (how avante-garde, eh?)
