    How do I include the twitter, facebook, digg, google buzz icons that show the number of times they've been tweeted/fb'd/dugg etc, with my posts?

    For example, icons http://mashable.com/ has for their articles?

    How would I include these icons at the bottom of a post, and/or have them floating on the side like the http://mashable.com site?

    Thanks in advance.

    For multiple smaller social icons, I like the Sociable plugin.

    But for the larger buttons that list the number of times it has been shared, you probably need to use separate plugins for each service. For Twitter I use TweetMeme, and Simple Facebook Connect includes a share button for Facebook,.

    I haven't tried any Buzz buttons, but there are several, like Google Buzz Button For WordPress, that you could choose from.
