    Onlywire is good to post to several bookmarking sites at once, but I am yet to see any real 'progress' coming from onlywire bookmarking to my sites.. but I still do it. I don't have it on my sites though because it's ugly and noone ever clicked on it. I just use the firefox addon and add it myself.

    Feedburner is great for tracking how many is subscribed to your blog.. that's about all I use it for, and because a lot of the themes I purchase has already implemented feedburner..

    I no longer use AddThis, ShareThis, or AddToAny.. I found no proof that anyone was ever clicking on them, so they were just extra noise.

    Instead I use more obvious 'bigger' buttons that allow people to share directly to Facebook and Twitter - and because I use Wordpress for a lot of my blogs, the "Damn Sexy Bookmarks" plugin for the social bookmarking in case anyone cares to stumble, digg, or 'reddit', etc. It's pretty, it 'animates' when people hover over it, and even though I'm still yet to see proof of anyone ever click on them, at least "I do" lol, and it does get more clicks than the addtothis/sharethis buttons..

    The other thing I do, is have a 'text' version of "Share this on Facebook", and the WP-Likes plugin which allows people to 'like' a post. Neither of which answer your question really, just thought I'd add it in :)

    But then again, I really care more about tweets and facebook adds which are more common than the others, although a few more stumblers would be good, and I think I should consider adding a bigger 'stumblethis' button next to the tweet/facebook ones.
    My posts are generally never 'digg' worthy excepting my "top 10 lists", etc. so it's pointless me having a digg button.
