Feed Automation

In the past, I had my blog posts auto-shared to Twitter using a service that no longer exists. I decided it might be worth finding a replacement. The one I'm trying at the moment is called dlvr.it. It supports up to three social media services in its free plan, so I should be more than fine with that; I currently have it connected with my Twitter, Google+, and Facebook accounts. My only complaint is that I cannot tell it to shorten links with my own Bit.ly API key, so I can see analytics for clickthrough. Although, given the relatively-limited amount of traffic that this blog tends to generate at the moment, that's not really a big thing for now. If I do manage to find the motivation to write more here, then perhaps the increase in traffic will make it worth finding a better solution to this in the future.
