You should hang your mezuzzah on the right side of your door post, tilted to the left, two thirds above the floor. Here are the blessings you recite when putting it up along with a further explanation as to how and why we hang it.

 A Mezuzah should be affixed to the doorpost of each room in the home and place of business (including basement, attic, and garage). A Mezuzah should never be placed at the entrance to a bathroom. Inspection: Each Mezuzah must be examined by a reliable scribe, at least twice every seven years. Temperature and weather changes, as well as age, may cause the ink to fade and crack, thereby invalidating the Mezuzah. Before affixing a Mezuzah to a doorpost, the following blessing should be recited:  Boruch Atah A-do-nai Elo-heinu Melech Ha-olam asher kidishanu b'miyzvotov v'tzivanu likboa Mezuzah. Translation: Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to affix a Mezuzah.  

To say nothing, especially when speaking, is half the art of diplomacy.
