Auto-Submitting Your Posts To The Web’s Top Social Networking Sites

As far as blogging platforms go I reckon that WordPress has to the the best freaking platform on the planet. If that wasn’t enough for the average run of the mill blogger then the variety and quality of plugins available for WordPress makes it even better!

If I was to compare it to anything I would say that plugins do the same job for a WordPress blog that a turbo charger or any other number of accessories under the hood do for a high performance car.

When looking for a plugin it has to fulfill at least one of three criteria.

  1. Make Life Easier: Let’s face it, blogging is a grueling thankless task that can take so much time out of your life that you barely have time to make love to your prospective other.
  2. Rewarding Commentators: There are many plugins that do this ranging from commentluv to dofollow and many plugins in between.
  3. Make Life Easier For The Visitor: This could include plugins that make it easier for someone to Tweet a post or perhaps it could allow them to leave a link in the comment without having to know html

Before even considering installing a plugin I make sure that it’s able to fulfill at least one of the above conditions. This brings me to OnlyWire for WordPress, a plugin that allows my visitors to select from one of up to twenty social networking sites. Now, I’ve seen several blogs that have four or five buttons at theĀ  top of each post, but let’s face it guys, you gotta admit that does look a little tacky, not to mention rather limiting.

Let’s say you were going to consider OnlyWire for WordPress you would definitely want it to be better than what you already have now wouldn’t you. If you were to scroll down to the bottom of this post you would see the following button. Bookmark And Share Social Networking Sites

There are other buttons to choose from but I chose this particular one because it appealed to me. But it doesn’t stop there because if you were to hover your mouse pointer over that button you would get a little surprise, a surprise that would look like this.

Yep read em and weap, up to 20 social networking sites to choose from

Check it out, not one, not two, not even three but up to 20 different social networking sites for them to choose from. How freaking great is that? :thumbup_tb: The actual amount depends on how many of those sites you have configured the plugin to show, but it gets even better and is the number one reason why you should consider installing this plugin. Once installed and you publish a post it will automatically submit that post to every one of those social networking sites.

Some service like Digg may require you to submit a captcha code to finalize a submission but that’s a small price to pay for what this plugin provides. The easiest way to install the plugin is to use WP’s very own ‘Add New’ feature in the plugin menu, just do a search for OnlyWire for WordPress and select the one from OnlyWire Engineering.

Getting More Than Just Money For Doing The Xomba

There’s been rumors floating around that I love the ladies, and I have to admit I love women, and although I may flirt a little on the net I hope that I do it in a nice way, and I want everyone to know that my heart belongs to the woman that I’ve been married to for 23 years, or is that 22? I forget sometimes and I don’t have the balls to ask her. :laugh_tb:

OK, I just asked, it’s been 24 Years and I’m still alive to post about it :wink_ee:

Anyway, I do love all women and I respect them for who they are, even though I may tend to tease them I hope I don’t come over as a male chauvinist pig, because I’m not. I learn a lot from women and this post came about because a very beautiful lady, Anne of Anne On Life,introduced me to another way to increase my online income. She called her post Xomba Testing 1…2…3… and on her advice I joined under her, which led to some very interesting Tweets. :devil_tb:

The  money part of it comes from being able to share the adsense earnings, a 50/50 split, with the site’s owner, but that’s not why I joined. I joined more for the social side of it and the fact that Xomba can be used to promote my blogs. This can be done by using their bookmark feature which is a short post, 50 words or so, which includes a link to another site that you find interesting. This bookmark is shared with the entire Xomba community and as I write this there are over 430 of them  online!

Naturally like any social networking site you don’t want to keep bookmarking your own blog as people may get cheesed off with that sort of shenanigans.

You can also enter articles which need to be around the 150 word mark, and easily achievable goal, and this could also contain a link to one of your blogs but I wouldn’t overdo it. Nobody likes people who abuse a good thing.

Anyway I’m giving it a go and I want as many of you as possible to do the Xomba with me, and ladies if you want I’ll even let you be on top. :devil_tb:
