Linking to your blog posts on social media sites like Twitter is an effective way to get more traffic to your blog, especially if you have a lot of followers. If you host your blog on Tumblr, it's easy to link your posts to your Twitter account. After syncing your accounts, Tumblr will send out tweets on your behalf, with customised short URLs for your followers to click on that will lead them directly to your posts.
