Adding a TweetMeme Button to Blogger

We have been tweaking our blog over the past month. Touch up here, touch up there. Today we decided to add a TweetMeme button. We are on Twitter so much that it seemed appropriate.

What do you think of the new button? Will you be adding one to your blog?

Go to TweetMeme Retweet Button to pick the right code for you. It works with Wordpress as well. It gives you a lot of options to tweak it. We made sure that the RT is by us. If you are looking to use it with Blogger then here are the steps to help you. We will show you how to post it at the end of your blog in the compact size and to add your name in the RT.

Follow these easy steps below to Adding a TweetMeme Button to Blogger:

  1. Sign in to your Blogger account and go to
    Dashboard -> Layout -> Edit HTML
    and click the checkmark Expand Widget Templates

  2. Now find the following code
    (NOTE: I used the search feature and looked for data:post.body)
    and paste the following code directly below

    <script type="text/javascript">
    tweetmeme_style = 'compact';
    tweetmeme_source = 'talktweetmeme';
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    (NOTE: Where talktweetmeme is you will want to put your twitter handle)
    You may want to put a few <br /><br />

    before the code if you want a few extra spaces.

  3. It will look like this:Adding a TweetMeme Button to Blogger

  4. Save the template. And you are done!

I hope this was helpful.
