[how to] linkwithin - related posts

ever wonder how to get those thumbnails at the end of your post that can direct readers to other posts they might like? ya me too.  I just spent 20 minutes trying to figure it out but everyone's directions were for the really old blogger template.  not helpful.  here's my updated version of how to install it!

first, go to linkwithin

fill out this info (with your own obviously)..

click Get Widget! and it will take you to the next page.  click the hyper link that says install widget and it will take you here...

this is where linkwithin's directions don't work.  change the title to whatever you would like and click edit content.

now this is where you are going to be like 'no shit sherlock!'.  
copy the html code, go to your blogger layout... 

now just add a gadget, select html/javascript, and paste the code you just copied from before. save it.
now drag that gadget to where it says blog posts so that it falls beneath it.

voila!!  save arrangement and go check out your blog!

If I still used Blogger this would be super helpful. But I'm on Wordpress now so I will have to see how I can do this on there (if at all).

I've been wanting this forever and couldn't figure out how to do it! This is AMAZING! FYI though, for me their instructions worked just fine, so I don't know what's up with that. In any case I'm so happy to have this now. Thanks for sharing!
