Switching your blog to https has a significant impact on the social proof related to all published posts.

While the share count buttons for Twitter & LinkedIn will preserve the figures they previously displayed, the buttons for Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and Stumbleupon will reset to zero. Ouch!

Adrian: How much does it cost to switch to https?

Hi Martin. If you refer strictly to the cost of a SSL certificate, the answer is "it depends" :)

For example, I didn't pay anything because my host simply added it at no cost.

If your host didn't add such certificate I guess you should pay for it. Inside my article (under the sub-headline "When Is It Better to Install Social Warfare Plugin?") there's a banner for such a service - Comodo SSL. The prices start at $9/yr.
