Jetpack is in no way new… But I have never installed it (it seems that half a million other people have though). The only service I have used from Automattic is akismet. Then about a month ago I installed after the dead line as a Google Chrome plugin to help me with my spelling mistakes. It seemed to work so I thought I would give it a go as a WordPress plugin.
What was new was that I had not integrated a sharing solution for readers of my blog. So as of now there is a share this option at the end of my posts.
Of course Sharedaddy, the sharing plugin did not have a Google +1 sharing option, nor del.ic.ious sharing option. So I had to find some solutions. I found a fork of Sharedaddy on github which had added Google+ and LinkedIn. (I am not on Google+ but I just joined LinkedIn last week as I was redoing my resume).
To add delicious I followed a post by Ryan Markel to find the right share service URLs.
The other thing I figured out this week was how to use the Menus Feature under the Appearance tab. I have been using K2 since 2005 and have always thought that the menus in the default theme were sufficient. I have usually not had complex menu desires. So there was no real need to learn these new features, however. Now I wanted to put several picture pages under the same menu. So wal-la. It is done now.
