I am extremely anti-spam. I’m extremely anti-noise. I loathe marketers and spammers and people who research ways to manipulate others (e.g. Frank Luntz).
Having said that I am now trying to figure out how to publish my writings here and then advertise <shiver> them in a way that conforms to my ethics.
My current approach is to . . .
- Write something on here
- Use Buffer to schedule it on my personal Twitter account and my personal Google Plus account
- Manually post it to Facebook
About the permanence of a post
My my current thinking is that each of my posts is evergreen, a living document. I probably won’t change its slug because I believe in retaining origin whenever possible, I think, but the content might very well change at any moment.
What I want from you
Do you have any tips? How do you blog? How do you promote or advertise your writing in a way that does not beat people over the head or become merely more marketing noise?
