New E-mail Button on ShareBar

We just added an e-mail icon to the ShareBar which is displayed above and below main posts and below most mini-posts. It looks like this:

New ShareBar with E-mail Icon

Note: You’ll need to scroll down to another post to test it. (Make sure you are on the home page.) The above is just an image.

This may not work on all browsers or e-mail clients. Please let us know in the comments section if it doesn’t work on yours. Our goal was to create a simple way for users to share my posts with their friends and business associates.

This new feature will be part of my new GetNoticed! theme. I am just a few days away from announcing the beta program. When I do, I will tell you how to apply for the beta.

    Hi there Michael,

    I’d be interested to buy the ShareBar as a plugin! Is that possible?

      No, I’m afraid not. We only plan to make it available as part of the theme. Thanks.

    Great point Michael. We need to add this to http://www.501c3u.com. Appreciate your book and have bought several for clients! Great stuff.

    That’s awesome, I’ll be using that one quite a bit in future!

    Just a thought, but with universal sharing options available through Lockerz and AddThis, which allow blog and website visitors to choose from several hundred sharing options, doesn’t it seem a bit limiting for the new theme sharing bar to focus entirely on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Email, and self-printing options? Granted, those are the top and most popular sharing options, and having the counter buttons on them can help demonstrate and generate additional interest, but to really increase one’s exposure and appeal, doesn’t it help to include them all? Or will the new theme allow for a Lockerz or AddThis button to be used in place of the sharing bar as is?

      I am not convinced more options lead to more sharing. In fact, quite a lot of general psychological research has proven that more options only increase the likelihood of nothing being done.
      Regardless, you should be able to use these plugins with the theme if that’s the way you want to go.
