The way you use your time is the way you live your life.

Finding time to create useful and interesting content and post it on your blog is so important if you’re looking to connect and share your ideas, interests, and expertise on-line! And if you’ve been blogging for awhile, you probably have a wonderful cache of valuable information on your blog, going back for months … or even years.
You may have an archive and a listing of your post categories in your sidebar. And maybe you offer readers the option of searching through your posts. But really, once a post is no longer visible on your landing page, it’s likely that few people are going to see it unless it comes up on a search, or you repurpose it somehow.
That’s why I was so happy when my VA told me about the WordPress Plugin “Tweet Old Post,” developed by Ajay Matharu. What this tool does is give you the option of randomly tweeting older posts from your blog.
I started blogging here at The Time Finder back in June of 2008, and there are now, literally, hundreds of time-finding posts in my archives. I am elated to be able to share them on Twitter now, with such ease!
When you download this plugin to your WordPress blog, you’ll be offered a number of configuration options. It’s important to explore these so that you can make the most of Tweet Old Post. You can set the time interval for your tweets, indicate what you’d like to have precede your link, and also include a hashtag if you like.
Back in August, Gilberto Perera wrote a helpful review of this plugin on Weblog Tools Collection where he goes through all of the options and makes suggestions about how to best set up your plugin. As a tool for easily sharing your content – and especially your older blog posts – this can be a huge time-saver.
I hope this post was helpful, and would love to hear if you give Tweet Old Post a try! Please stop by and let me know what you think!
