I’ve been talking to a lot of people lately about the power of the blog. Thankfully, some understand how important it is to get yourself out there and talk up the fact that you’re an expert in your industry. But some wonder, “Now that I’ve blogged, do I have to go to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to post them all up there?” NO! There is a much easier answer. If your blog is on WordPress (and why wouldn’t it be?), it’s extremely easy to connect it to your social media world in just a few clicks.
For Facebook and Twitter, go to your Facebook account and look up NetworkedBlogs. Click the button to register your blog and then just follow the steps. You either need to install a bit of code on your site or have a handful of friends verify your blog to make sure it’s from you, so content won’t feed right away. However, once you’re verified, this will automatically pull your blog over to Facebook. It can take anywhere from one to five hours for it to populate, but it will. When you’re linking to NetworkedBlogs, look for the link to post it on Twitter as well. This one app actually posts to two outlets.
Then head over to LinkedIn, and in the edit profile mode, add the application for WordPress. Instantly, your blog posts will populate on your profile.
Within 15 minutes, you can make it so your WordPress blog will show up in your feeds on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. It’s as easy as that! If you get a little stuck, let me know; I can set this up for you quickly and easily.
