Welcome to my new feature called Wednesday Wing where I’ll be passing on observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.
Today I’m passing on a tip for bloggers who use WordPress and want their readers to share their posts on Twitter
During my trips around the globe following the #AtoZChallenge I found countless blogs who DID NOT have their Twitter account linked successfully to their blog. Without it you will miss many readers who share your post and you miss the opportunity to re-tweet their tweet.
Here are two examples;
A to Z Challenge Week 3 Sunday Round-up #AtoZChallenge http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-6zH via @rosieamber1
Mr Blogs posts shared to the ether http://wp.me/blahablas via @Wordpress.com
In the first example I can pick up every tweet @rosieamber1 from the notifications list on twitter and re-tweet.
How to check if your WordPress blog is linked to your Twitter account.
1) In Dashboard mode go to Settings
2) Then go to Sharing
3) Scroll down this page until you see the box called Twitter User Name. Add your Twitter name without the @
4) Click save changes
I only know about WordPress, but if anyone has a tip from another blogging platform, please do share it with us.
