Is there a way to allow visitors to share my content? I received a complaint that a visitor was trying to share my blog post from a mobile device and couldn't. I don't see anything I can add to my site to enable someone to email a link to someone - all buttons seem to only be directed to a specific email I set, and will not allow me to allow a visitor to send a link or content to their designee... Is there a way to enable sharing?

It depends on exactly what, and how you are wanting to share information.  it is possible to obtain your blogs RSS feed URL, if someone wants to follow your blog, but otherwise, it would just be a matter of the person copying the URL for the page and sharing it.

I know how to get the rss feed, I have received a complaint that there isn't a way to share individual blog posts - when there isn't access to the URL (they wanted us to have a "share" button, or "email a friend" type button to share specific content only if chosen) the complaint was from someone on a mobile devise, but we don't really have a mobile site, at least not that has mobile pages on the pages they were looking for, so it would have to be an option from the regular website...

Unfortunately, there is not a way to do this from Sitebuilder.  The blog can accept some HTML, so if you were able to generate share HTML then you may be able to allow something. 

I am going to change this topic to an idea for the developers.
