Tech Chatter – WordPress &c.
A number of clients have asked about how I get my material, I seem to be prolific, how my material gets distributed to all the social media outlets.
I can’t recall how I set most of this up. I can recall a few tricks. Pursuant to a discussion a few days ago, here’s the secret tip:
Yes, it’s an affiliate link, and yes, I get a commission (1). The deal is, that tool, that WordPress Plug-in saves me hours, maybe even weeks of time.
As my best editor admonished me, lo, those many years ago, “Write once, sell many.”
- Grammar question aside, the quote is accurate, and, as it turns out, the best editor, and now, advice I still hew to.
Don’t do repetitive processes that the machine can do faster, easier, and in less time. The salient point that I find most important about that plug-in? It’s very white-hat. Mostly.
I did have one WordPress site (account) suspended because some of my posts, like this one, have a commercial bend to them.
There was also a frequency issue, but with several photo-weblogs that post daily, or weekly, plus a daily journal like this one, yes, lots of material.
The previous referenced, side project, and the ‘gently wilting on the vine’ Anglo-phile site, that’s three locations that post daily or almost daily. Oddly enough, the horoscopes still get the most traffic.
Still, it’s a lot of content, and that plug-in handles the distribution thereof.
