One of the most frequent problems bloggers have is TIME! It is not enough just to write the blog post, you then have to get it out into cyberspace and promote it through social media and other avenues like link ups and blog parties. This all takes time especially if you have to comment on other posts in linkups etc.
So how would you feel if you could reach many more readers by just pressing the Publish button and nothing more. Sounds good doesn’t it!
I am in a Facebook group of like minded bloggers and my friend, Mary Gilbert, from My Life In Progress suggested we try a new strategy to increase exposure of our blogs on twitter. It is called twitterfeed.com and it allows you to feed your posts automatically to not only your social media but to your ‘twitter circle’ as soon as they are published. The best thing is that it is free!
A ‘twitter circle’ is where you add the rss feed of other bloggers and when they publish, you automatically tweet for them and they automatically tweet when you publish.

Here is a youtube video from Michelle Schaeffer, Girl Blogger Next Door which shows you a step-by-step guide to setting up Twitter Feed. Michelle makes it so easy to follow the instructions and it takes no time to set up.
So get your ‘virtual’ blogging friends together, make a ‘twitter circle’ and watch your blog reach more readers without any extra effort.
