How to add a 'Stumble it!' button to your Blogger blog posts

After the resounding success of my post How to add a social bookmark button to your blog posts, I now present the eagerly awaited and longed for sequel: how to add a Stumble it! button to your Blogger blog posts.
First, go to the StumbleUpon buttons page and choose a button. Then choose ‘Blogger’ and copy the produced code but WITHOUT the first line (beginning and ending with a bracketed ‘p’).
Then, as with the previous ‘AddThis’ button:

1 - Select Layout > Edit HTML
2 - Check the Expand Widget Templates checkbox
3 - Copy and paste the code snippet into the template, right after the (div class='post-footer') tag
4 - Click Save Template

Be sure to back up your template beforehand, in case you accidentally make a complete and total hash of it.

The result will be a beautifully elegant little Stumble it! button at the bottom of your blog posts like the one just below.

What are you waiting for? Stumble it!

Kind thank-you for your easy-to-follow instructions. I have been wondering how to do this! Now I have the buttons on both of my blogs.

Your blog is a keeper so I followed.
