Hello everybody :)

I'm designing blog. And client wants to have option for visitors to
add/submit particular post to online bookmarking or digg-like
services.
But there are so many of them around..

Is there any better solutions than simply pick 5-10 of them hoping
that current visitor uses one of them?

I looked at "addthis.com" awhile back, which puts one of those "you can have
everything you want" things in one button the page: http://www.addthis.com/

It's kind of the lazy approach, so I haven't used it because I'd like to
find out which bookmarking tools my audience actually uses most, but at the
same time, it's good to have a fallback.

One of the caveats is that I believe you have to log into it to retrieve
your bookmarks and settings. There's a little setup involved, is what I
mean.

Thank you for the link, Bryan!

Probably I'll stick to this solution if I'll find something better.

Thanks again!

The one I'm currently using is "ShareThis" (http://sharethis.com/),
and it covers the major social networks services, pretty easy to
install, but I miss a reporting feature, which would tell you the
demographics of your users (how many posts have been shared? which
social network they're posting to? etc).

But other issues that I would suggest you to take in consideration
would be "how is the audience?" "Which social networks they belong
to?" I noticed -- for example -- that most of the big publications
only have either one or two options (technorati/digg/sphere)
depending on their content (technology, lifestyle, design, etc...)
