Blogs and social media.

I am witnessing firsthand what a valuable tool Twitter is for attracting readers to this blog. For years I’ve had my blog set up to generate a tweet with a link to each new post, and at long last, it’s starting to kick in as I’ve been getting more likes on my posts and new followers. Never before has Twitter’s potential to attract new visitors been this obvious, and I like the results I’ve been getting. It took a while but my efforts and patience have paid off.

I also have this blog integrated into Facebook through NetworkedBlogs but am not having as much luck there. I briefly had it set up to post a link to each new post but I have not been sensing as much interest. I’ve since eased the tight integration and will share an occasional post I think my friends will like, and that seems to be working somewhat. But Twitter is definitely turning out to be the tool to use for spreading the word about your blog.
