In response to a question I received a few days ago, here is an explanation on linking social media. I have linked my blog feed to Twitter. Keep in mind that there is always more than one way to do anything. I'm just telling you how I do it with Google Feedburner. I did notice a message on the right of the image that there were issues connecting their "Socialize" feature on March 1, 2011. Mine has been working.
I have a tweet button on my blog page and could always just manually tweet it, but I like automation. Yes... you may think using the tweet button is much easier, but I use Google Feedburner for my email subscription tracking as well. Actually, there are about a dozen cool things a person can do with Feedburner, but that would be a post for another day. If you want more info on all this (like a video showing you how), please let me know in the comments. In the meantime, all you fearless bloggers should go to feedburner.com.
