What is Flattr?
social micro payments- aka another way for bloggers, tweeters, facebookies to make money.
Thing of it as the Paypal plus a ReTweetmeme button.
FlattR is the new legal business of the creator of Pirate Bay- the large search engine for bit torrent data.
Read some snarkly grrovy instructions here with a screenshot
1.) Open a Flattr.com account here. This should be reasonably straightforward. A monkey hitting keys at random could manage it in about half an hour. It took me less than 45 minutes.
2.) In the top right of ‘Your Flattr Dashboard’ there is a button ‘Submit Thing’. Click on that and enter the details of your blog – the URL (like decisionstats.com for me) and a description (make that atleast 3 sentences). Flattr will create a page – for example,https://flattr.com/thing/162940/example-blog
Now go to your wordpress dashboard- sharing tab.
Add the following lines to your New Add Service in respective tabs
URL= https://flattr.com/thing/175763/DecisionStats (change this to the one created for yourself instep2 above)
