JapanSoc Video Tutorial – Social Bookmarking Button

Over on the Daily J, our friend Tori is working hard to bring Japan’s community of bloggers together. As well as projects such as Nipponster and Japanopedia, he is regularly giving exposure to blogs and community-driven websites such as JapanSoc.

To my surprise, he has started on a series of video tutorials for each of the tools on my JapanSoc Toolbox page, starting with a guide on how to install the JapanSoc Voting Button. Since I think video tutorials are an excellent idea, I’ve made one myself!

The JapanSoc social bookmarking button is a textual or graphical link at the bottom of a blog post that when clicked, automatically submits an article to JapanSoc. Here’s my first attempt at a video tutorial, a 9 minute overview, stealthily avoiding all the details and focusing only on WordPress.org blogs.

If you can’t see the video, watch it here on YouTube.

Note: I made this video using Hypercam (shareware) and Windows Movie Maker (bundled with Vista).

New JapanSoc Banners and Buttons

For JapanSoc to be successful, it needs the support of the Japan blogging community. So, to assist my fellow bloggers in exposing new readers to the social bookmarking site, I’ve put together a selection of banners and buttons which you can add to your own blog or website.

Phew! They were hard work to make, but I hope you find them useful. If you need any other sizes, just let me know.
