    How do I add that “+del.icio.us” in my template so that it comes below each and every post ?

    For that matter how do I add that entire list of digg/furl/technorati/del.icio/us as part of my blogger code so that for each post, readers can bookmark it ?

    I’ve seen a lot of bloggers do it (like you’ve done it for del.icio.us).

    Appreciate your help. Thanks.

    I am new to the blog world, however i’ve had random thoughts for my whole life. The blog world is a great outlet to release them into. I had no clue what technorati was until recently however this is the coolest online rolodex ever! I assume i may never be found with the other 50 million blogs though but thats okay

  7. Bob Roberts says:

    I want to keep Technorati from pulling all my posts. I’ve got a commercial site with customers that posts about 60 items a day. One blog on Technorati is stealing every posting. I’d like for them to stop so that they don’t undermine my clients.

    IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DELETE IT!
