I just wanted to share 2 ways (free) to automate traffic to your blog posts by using your blog RSS feed(s). For those of you who are already aware of these 2 resources, my apologies...
Sign up for free account at https://dlvr.it/ then add your blog RSS feed, then add your Twitter account(s), Facebook account(s), Tumblr, Linkedin acct.
After you get it all set up, each new blog post will go out automatically to all your social accounts.
You can also do the same thing at http://ifttt.com/ (also for free) which has some additional options that dlvr.it does not have, such as Reddit, Diigo, Delicious, Digg and many other options for auto posting.
Happy traffic and backlinks !
