To do: add the Digg yellow button

To do: add the Digg yellow button to all my posts on both my personal blog and my computer science related stuff blog.

I did some research on the net (i.e. googling) => I found 2 solutions:

  1. The first solution is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you, Jorge!

    Of course, there's also Digg's solution but it's not very straightforward to find - I mean the thing that I wanted with the button seems quite difficult to find. I found it on their website only when I knew what I was looking for. However, they don't say exactly how to integrate this with blogger: I have searched quite a bit on and I'm quite sure that they don't say anywhere on their site the exact specific way to integrate digg with blogger - I mean the exact specific information as I needed and Jorge's blog provided.

    The funny thing is that googling digg for the exact integration with blogger only offers results about digged web pages and none from Digg Help.

  2. The second solution I found is for adding digg buttons to individual posts. I haven't tested that, because I didn't need it and also I don't have access to a server where to store that html file they're creating as a workaround.

Hope this helped anyone trying to add a Digg yellow button on their website!

P.S.: Now guess who's the first one to digg my personal blog! Yes, obviously, it's me!
P.S.2: Yes, yes, I know and I've read that technically they don't accept non-English digged links, but hey! it would be a real shame not to promote those posts I wrote about my traveling in Romania.
