Tweeting old blog posts

Sometimes I write a blog post that I personally think is interesting but which gets almost entirely ignored, probably partly because I announced it on Facebook and Twitter at a time when most people were asleep.

I have now partly solved this problem on my Arc of Prosperity blog by installing a WordPress plugin called Tweetily.

Tweetily will randomly select a post and tweet it automatically (I’ve set it to do this every 12 ± 2 hours).

I wasn’t sure what the reaction was going to be, but several of my “from the archives” posts have been retweeted and traffic has gone up significantly, so I think it’s been worthwhile in this case.
