Oh the holidays! The fun of family get-togethers, food, parties, decorating, shopping and the list goes on and on and on! Now juggle that with your job, your blog, writing, researching, let alone keeping up with your social media accounts. It’s enough to make you throw your hands in the air and run screaming from the room until January 1st. Don’t laugh. I did just that last year!
Not that I have the answer to creating more hours in the day during December but I have come across a handy-dandy little item that you might use to help with your social media presence.
If you use a WordPress theme on your blog, I’ve got a plug-in for you!! Tweetily.
Tweetily downloaded to your WordPress site will randomly tweet past blog posts. You have the option to decide how many times a day Tweetily sends out a post, you can include hash tags, exclude certain posts, add links, etc. You can even dictate the time frame of posts to be tweeted.
You have a lot of valuable information in past blog posts that gets buried as new posts are written. Tweetily puts those forgotten posts back in circulation allowing your readers a chance at some well written tips or techniques. It refreshes our memory on research help you wrote about or a brick wall that finally came tumbling down. It’s a given we’re not all on Twitter at the same time so a random tweet reminds us to visit your website.
Also if your Twitter account is already linked to your Facebook page, that randomly tweeted blog post will be posted on Facebook as well. Your followers will get your message on either of these social media platforms.
Try Tweetily. It will help in giving you a social media presence while you’re busy being social this holiday season.
