Technology Tip: Adding a Print Button to Blog Posts

PrintFriendlyEver wondered how you could make it so that readers could print your blog posts without them looking like a mess?  Me too. So last night while I was participating in the SavvyBlogger Twitter Party I asked that very same question ……and I found the answer.

If your blog is hosted on WordPress, simply click “Add New” under Plugins on your dashboard. Next search for PrintFriendly, all one word. It should be your first result. From there follow the install instructions. Once installed and activated PrintFriendly should appear under settings in your dashboard. Click the link to customize your PrintFriendly button.

For those of you using Blogger, just visit http://www.printfriendly.com/button to get the code.

A big shout out to Rachel at A Southern Fairytale and to the folks at PrintFriendly for reaching out and helping me discover the PrintFriendly plugin.

    Some of these comments people are saying here on this issue really seem to make me look at this in a whole new way. I do enjoy the responses though.
