2. Confirm your email address and complete registration
–You receive an email similar to this one. Click the confirmation link.

–When you click the email you should see a website similar to this where you will continue telling them your personal information:

–At this point you have a couple options. The easiest option is 1) Click “click here to skip this step.” The better option is probably 2) “enter contacts manually” if you know (or can PM and get) emails of those who you think would like to read and vote for your blogs. By doing this they can receive emails each time you post something new. (Note: either way is acceptable; you can always come back later and add emails if you like. So don’t hold up signing up while you wait on email addresses).


–CONGRATULATIONS!! You are signed up with Buzzfuse

Default Marketing Yourself with Buzzfuse

Congratulations, you are now signed up with Buzzfuse, and now it's time to begin marketing yourself to the Buzzfuse community so that hopefully you can find a few more active readers of your post and also make your rankings slightly better.

1. Write your post in your blog as you normally would and then leave it open in a separate browser or tab.

2. Login to Buzzfuse and gather the code needed to market you post.

--click the red "market content" button on the top of the page


--In the middle of your screen, there will be a box full of html code (if you're not familiar with html code, it'll look like a box of jumbled mess)


--You're going to need to select everything in that box and copy it! (A short cut I use is I click in the box, and then push "ctrl-a" on my keyboard to "select all" and then "ctrl-c" to copy.)

3. Return to your blog post to paste this code. (As Chatty Women, use Word Press, I'm going to give instructions/screen shots for that software)
--Normally, you write posts in "visual" view, but you'll need to change to "code" view


--Go to the bottom of your post (or wherever you want the buzzfuse box to appear), and paste.


--Now Click "Publish" button as you normally do when you are ready to make your post visible to the public.

Default Continuing Your Promotion

4. Activating Your Post (The Final Step)--The first step that I forget about half of the time here is that you need to first click on your post so that you are only seeing that one post (in other words in your browser address bar it should say saying like http://chattywomen.com/busymom/2008/...zzfuse-part-1/ not just http://www.chattywomen.com/busymom)

--Click the gray colored buzzfuse box in the post (this will cause a pop up screen that takes you to buzzfuse)


--In the pop up box, you will find a place to enter the details surrounding your post:


--Enter the Information about your post and click the "save" button (be sure that the URL is correct and goes to your post, not your entire blog)


--After clicking "save" the screen will change slightly, and you will then click "publish"

4. Continued--Now you should receive a message thanking you for your submission


I know this may seem long (I just gave very specific instructions) and compiicated at first glance, but I promise it's easier than it seems and gets easier every time you do it. Good luck and feel free to ask any questions.

Default Rating Your Friends' Posts on Buzzfuse

If you’ve read the first two tutorials in this series, you have joined Buzzfuse and you know how to put the widget at the bottom of your posts so that your posts can receive votes. You are putting this widget in hopes that other Buzzfuse members will read your posts and kindly vote for you. The fair thing to do to be a part of the community is to also vote yourself for posts that have been submitted. While the title of this tutorial is “Promoting Your Friends’ Blogs,” please note that by friends I don’t necessarily mean those that you already know, but also those that you will get to know by being an active member at Buzzfuse.

1. When you login to Buzzfuse, you’ll see a screen such as the one below:


2. Click on one title of the post that interests you (I’m going to read the first one) and the actual blog post will be displayed in a pop up screen for you to read.


3. At the bottom of the post, you’ll see the Buzzfuse widget. Click on that widget.


4. You will now see a screen such as the one below where you can rate the post you just read.
–On this screen, you can rate the post with 1 - 10 stars.
–You can also click “add recomendation” if you liked it and would recommend that others read it.
–Finally if you would like to be notified via email every time this person submits a new post, you can click “add me as fan.”
-For this post, you’ll see that I gave it 10 stars and I’ve added it to my recommendations
-Notice you also have a place that you can add comments if you like.



Congratulations. If you have followed these directions, you have now ranked your first Buzzfuse post. Remember we are a community and you should check back, read a variety of posts and rank your new Buzzfuse friends.

Default Creating an Email Button

Step 1: You need to create a new email, or use an existing email if you prefer. I would suggest you come up with a new email name related to your blog. You can use gmail, yahoo, or any other email server you like.

Step 2: Go to http://services.nexodyne.com/email/index.php Enter your new email address and choose from the drop down menu the server name.

Default Email Button Tutorial

Step 5: Drag a new text box onto one of the sidebars where you want your email button to show. If you need more text boxes, add one at the bottom.



Step 6: Click on the notepad icon in the new text box. A dialog box will open.

Default Email Button Tutorial

Step 7: Here's where it gets the tiniest bit tricky. In the dialog box, paste the URL that you copied earlier. Place your cursor at the very beginning of the URL and add the code: <img src="
EXACTLY like that!
At the very end of the URL, add the code: "alt="insertyouremailhere@gmail.com" />



Obviously where you see MY email, you want to put in YOUR email. Click Save Changes, and then view your site. The email button should be generated where you want it! If you don't like where it is, you can simply drag the text box to another position in your sidebar, save changes, and that's it! The code will remain in the text box, so no need to redo the whole thing.

If you have any questions, or my instructions aren't clear, please pm me.
