Why Can’t We All Be Like That Wise Old Owl? (Publicizing Your Blog)

ImageYou know how you think you’re so smart and you’re just humming along, la-ti-da, you’ve got it all under control, and then BAM. Turns out you’re doing something totally stupid. Or maybe that’s just me.

The point is, when I switched my blogs up OVER A YEAR AGO, I thought I was publicizing my spiffy new WordPress site. I thought my blog posts were automatically going out to Facebook and Twitter and heck, infinity and beyond.

I was not–and they were not. Apparently, you have to activate the “Publicize” button on the WordPress dashboard to achieve that little feat. So word to the wise, click on that activate button.

I don’t think Blogger has a Publicize button you activate. But I used Networked Blogs, back when I had three blogs, and it automatically sent them out to Facebook, and it will post to Twitter as well. In fact, now that I’ve wised up, I think I deactivated my old blogs on Networked Blogs…and never activated the new one.

But it’s all good now. My blog posts here are going out again, and I did a test run with Cathy-on-a-Stick to check on my Networked Blogs status. So wherever you turn, there I am.

Now whooooooo’s the smartypants?
