OK, last silly post for today, promise.
That SharePress plugin worked nicely, and as a side effect, I know have my own app on Facebook! Check it out: http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=327187054006218
Isn’t that awesome?! Well, all it does is redirects you to my blog. That’s it. But hey, I created my own Facebook app! You can even find it when searching in the Facebook search bar!
The following is not an add, just a personal recommendation.
In honor to Aaron Collegeman, creator of SharePress, here are the instructions to get it working with your own WordPress: http://aaroncollegeman.com/sharepress/help/how-to-setup-sharepress
I am not affiliated with Aaron in any way, I just think he does a good job ^^
What I don’t like about NetworkedBlogs is that in Twitter, the link posted is a shortened one, so it does not start with “dikk.org”. My URLs are very short already. Shortening it would save only few characters, and would not promote my blog :D Also, when clicking on that link, it displays an own NetworkedBlogs bar at the top.
Also, when it publishes to Facebook, the post looks nice, but depending on the link you click on, it directs you to the NetworkedBlogs page.
So, here’s to two new WordPress plugins! WP to Twitter and SharePress.
If you can read this, you know it worked.
Do they still exist?
Are they still relevant?
Do kids these days even know what a blog is?
I mean, it’s all Twitter and Facebook these days, isn’t it? At least it seems to be so for me. But neither of them offers the kind of container for my thoughts as does my good old WordPress blog running on my own domain. That’s why I will still use it, but try out a new syndication tool called NetworkedBlogs, which offers blog-to-facebook and blog-to-twitter publication of my posts.
Oh, I also found this nice Demotivational Poster. Pretty much sums it all up.
