Step 3: Click “Register & get the code.”

If you haven’t registered yet, sign up for free in seconds.

Step 4: Copy code under “Install sharethis.js on your website.”

Keep this page open, as you’ll come back for the code under the second section. Copy the first part of the code and head into your Blogger account.

Heads up! Since Blogger uses XML you’ll need to change one part of the code:

Replace “&product” within your unique installation <script> tag with &amp;product” in order for it to work properly with Blogger. (Blogger only!)

Step 5: Now within Blogger, go to Themes → Edit HTML.

Step 6: Now paste the code you copied from ShareThis between the <head> tags

Step 7: After you have saved your theme, go to a page you wish to add share buttons on.

Step 8: Now go back to ShareThis’ copy code page and copy the <div> section.

Step 9: Once copied, go back to Blogger and edit the HTML and add your Inline Share Buttons’ <div>
