Housekeeping: This is only a test. Nothing to see here, yet.Posted: September 7, 2013
This is pretty boring stuff, I expect to write nothing about cool, creepy things in this post. Feel free to move on. (Or stick around, if you too are thinking about how to add a plank or two to your social media platform. Or if you want to help me test this thing.)
I love wordpress.com. There are some things, however, that it just won’t do for me – including using java script. I’d like to run my first give-away (thanks to the generous nature of some of the Etsy artists I featured this week) and I’d like to use a widget called rafflecopter to do it.
Blogger allows java script.
That got me to thinking about my social media platform. When I first started blogging, I attempted to keep mirror blogs at both wordpress and blogger. It was a nightmare. My posts are just too image- and link-intensive to make that a reasonable option. I reluctantly closed down blogger and took up permanent residence here.
Not long after that, I experimented with tumblr. (Which I still don’t really get.) I adopted the practice of (sporadically) posting links to my wordpress content at tumblr. I just toss up a photo from the post and a link. So far, that practice hasn’t really paid off, but I keep doing it because it’s not difficult. Now I’m thinking I can do the same thing on blogger.
I’m playing with the options right now. In order to do that, I need a post a can work with both here and there. I may be updating both frequently, but I don’t think that will spam your feeds.
So let’s pretend the above text is a blog post about the generous Etsy artists that came forward to offer mechandise for me to give away.
