One great way I recently found to publicize new blog posts is with the Twitter Better WordPress Plugin. It serves 2 functions:
- Shows your latest Twitter posts
- Optionally updates your Twitter status when you save, publish, and/or edit a post, with a link to the post
It’s a really simple way to spread your URL around the internet, especially since Twitter is integrated with so many other web apps. For example, I have Twitter Better set to update my Twitter status when I publish a new post with the title and URL of the post. That new Twitter status is then used to automatically update my Facebook status with the title and URL of my new blog post, and the same can work for any other Twitter enabled web apps I use in the future.
