re: Adding Syndication Urls to My Posts VIEW POST


What's your flow when publishing something? Do you post everywhere manually and put all the links in your frontmatter?


The only place where I always re-post is on my Mastodon account (which then gets cross-posted to Twitter by crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/). I've made myself a Python script that I run to post a link to Mastodon. This script then also adds the resulting toot url back into the original entry as a syndication URL. If you're curious, the code for that is here: github.com/anaulin/tasks.py/blob/m...

My workflow for re-posting to other places is fully manual for now. I imagine that if I start getting into the habit of re-posting more widely, I can add little automated tasks to do that in a semi-automated way as well.

Initially I thought it would be nice to fully automate the re-posting off of new content in my RSS feed, and I wrote a little Python script that does just that (code here: github.com/anaulin/rss-wrangler.py). But I don't love the idea of doing this fully automatically, at least not yet. There are some entries that I don't care enough to re-post, and there are different places where I re-share my content, depending on the subject matter. So, for now, an approach that is manually triggered by me for each post suits me best.
