Publicising Updates To Your Blog, Using FaceBook And Twitter

If you publish a public Blogger blog, and have a FaceBook and / or Twitter account, then you have an audience for your blog updates, waiting to read your blog posts.

Any Blogger feed (which eliminates private blogs) can automatically post, to FaceBook and / or Twitter.

Until recently, you could publish your Blogger post feed directly to your FaceBook wall.

Right now, you can use FeedBurner to publish your Blogger post feed to your Twitter feed. Alternately, using the third party TwitterFeed service, you can publish any suitable newsfeed - Blogger or other - to any of 5 online services.
  • Twitter
  • Statusnet
  • Hellotxt
  • Facebook
  • Linkedin

I setup a new TwitterFeed account, today, in a single screen transaction.

Having setup my TwitterFeed account, setting up a Blogger to FeedBurner feed was similarly quick and painless.
  1. I provided the URL of my Blogger post feed, unredirected.
  2. In a separate window, I logged in to FaceBook, using my normal FaceBook account.
  3. In the TwitterFeed window, I instructed TwitterFeed to publish to my FaceBook account.
  4. In the TwitterFeed window, I instructed FaceBook to trust TwitterFeed.
  5. That's it.

Now, we see when this post publishes to my FaceBook Wall.

Next, I'll get back to work publishing blog posts. And, enjoy the convenience of automated publishing to additional blog services.

Love your blog.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
