Twitter Blog Post Threads
If you’re not already using Twitter for your blog promotion efforts then I highly recommend that you sign up.
Twitter has daily threads that you can share your latest posts on.
There are even special accounts that you can follow who do these types of posts quite a bit.
To name a few!
Also be on the look out for other Twitter users who do fun comment threads and share posts. This can be a fantastic way to have your post shared, commented on, and retweeted at the same time!
This platform is extremely underrated as a place to promote your blog posts, but it definitely is not one to forget about.
Quora is a great platform for having your questions answered by professionals or people who are knowledgeable in certain subjects.
Set up an account and list your expertise.
Over time you will receive questions from other users and you can feel free to answer any of them that you know the answer to. If you have a great relevant blog post that can answer their question you can link it there!
Tip: Make sure the link is 100% relevant.
This is a fantastic way to put your content to good use and if people love your an content could get ranked as a top answer!
Pinterest of course made the list for fun ways to promote your blog posts.
Personally I love designing pins and pinning them for others to see. Especially if it is something I am very passionate about.
Pinterest is such a great platform and social search engine. If people go to Pinterest and search about things relevant to your content you will have the potential to get pinned and even possibly go viral.
Which I have done! Let me tell you, it is the best feeling.
Guess how I became a blogger in the first place?
By joining a blogging Facebook group! I loved the environment. Everyone was so kind and answered a lot of my beginner questions.
We even shared our content to each other and supported eachother.
I’ve made a brand new blogging group just like that if you are interested! We will have daily discussions as well as share posts.
Your mailing list is your best asset. These are people who went out of their way to actually sign up to your blog.
Once these people sign up you can safely assume that they are interested in what you have to say for the most post.
Use that to your advantage and post your latest content to them regularly.
This is one of my top fun ways to promote your blog posts because of how great it is to engage with your actual readers and fans.

I use almost all these methods to prompote my blogposts but never once thought of Quora and realised how important that might be for my blog. Thank you so much for sharing!! x
I think many people don’t consider Quora because they didn’t really know they could participate in such a way. You definitely can stand to gain a lot of influence and traffic there if you leverage the platform correctly. All the best!
Absolutely, I am really glad I discovered them myself. I have made a lot of great friendships and connections that way.
Your mailing list offers SO many possibilities. That’s why it’s key for bloggers to put the time into building a list early on. Unlike your social media platforms, where you can be banned or locked out at any time, you own your mailing list. No one can take that away from you.
Absolutely you are so right. It is one of those things I wish I had cared about more in the beginning, but now I really see the value of my mailing list and am really excited to learn more about my readers.
I honestly think that Pinterest is not utilised by bloggers as much as it should be! I can be so on it one month and then neglect it the next and my blog really suffers!
Great post, really helpful!
Don’t forget, I own the RT twitter page: @RTBlogRoyalty – I share blogs all day everyday!
You are absolutely right. It is truly an asset and I think people really underestimate Pinterest. I will be sure to add your RT twitter page to my post! Thanks so much for reading and sharing that with me!
I use Twitter comment threads and Pinterest! Unfortunately, my Pinterest has not been doing well lately but I am hoping it picks up soon. Your pin stats are amazing! x
