I don’t think it’s a surprise to many to find out that a lot of blog reading takes place on a mobile device. As easy as it is to read blogs straight from the iPhone, it can be a pain to figure out how to share that blog from an iPhone. Every blog has different sharing buttons, and I find that some of them work on mobile and some of them don’t.
For a while, I’d just book mark posts I wanted to share and wait until I got to a computer to look them up. But NO MORE. I have found the easiest way to share a blog post on the iPhone. It works every time for every site.
So, you’re browsing Twitter or Facebook and you see your favorite blogger has a new post up. You click on the link and it takes you to their blog via Safari. You read a fabulous post and want to share it. You try one of their share buttons, but your fingers are too big and you end up clicking the wrong button. Annoying. I know, believe me. Don’t get frustrated and give up.
So, say you’re reading my Pulled Pork post (which by-the-way, is delicious). You want to add it to your Dinner board on Pinterest, but you want it to be easy. Here’s how to do it (this applies for Pinterest, Stumble Upon, Twitter, Facebook, and more!)
1| Flick up to reveal bottom task bar in Safari
2| Click on the share icon
These apps may not already be there. If they are, proceed to step 4. If not, to add them, click “more”. From there you can determine which apps are included in this share list and which aren’t.
If these are already activated, you’ll just have to click on the icon of the social media platform you want to share it on.
4| Click where you want to share it.
For instance, if you want to pin it, click on the Pinterest icon. Make sure you select which board you want it in and then click the “Pin it” Button. Ta Da… all done!
5| Smile because you did it… and it was too easy.
