Post Your Links Here To Promote Yourself and Your Blog!

Welcome, everyone! I’d like to invite you to post your links to your blogs by doing so in the comment section of this post! I’d also like you to post your Twitter handle, too! (If you are on Twitter, that is!) You might gain some new followers if you do! (I’ve been meeting a lot of new and interesting people lately, and am growing my followers bit by bit! I’m getting good at tweeting properly, relevantly, and usefully, too!)

Here is my old Twitter pic/screenshot:

In a few sentences, tell us:

  • what your blog is about
  • what you offer others on your website
  • your Twitter handle

There are two things you should know, too, before leaving me a comment…

The first thing you should know is that I’m hoping to engage people a little further out here in the blogosphere, and create my own little group of awesome bloggers that can interact with one another, who will also become part of the discussions that may happen in future blog posts!

Note that you can choose your level of participation, too. Jump in and participate when you feel like it, with no pressure from anyone, and sit back and observe when you want to, too!

I know that many of you would like more engagement with others, and this is your opportunity to meet someone new, who just might have more knowledge and experience than you, or who might happen to be a really interesting person who you’d like to connect with.

I know that I am looking forward to meeting some new and awesome people! 🙂


The second thing that you should know is that, in exchange for this free promotion and introduction service to each other, I am requesting that you grab my free ebook to join my mailing list! That way, we can stay in touch, get to know one another, and, most importantly, you can learn from me through my blog posts!

I generally only post once a week, usually on Mondays.

If you just want to promote yourself, and then never read anything I write in the future, that’s totally up to you. I’d also like you to share this with others on your other social networks. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word, so that I can get to know your “friends,” too!

My Blogs

Laying It Out There is my personal/author site. On it, I share recipes, true stories about my life, some of my poetry, book reviews, and information about self-publishing.

The Blind Writer is another site that is mine. The Blind Writer offers bloggers and writers direction in moving their writing forward, improving their writing and productivity, and improving their vocabulary.

I can’t wait to introduce all of you awesome people to one another this way! 🙂

Let the meeting and promotion of awesome people take place! I’ll start! This is a digital business card for Lorraine Reguly.

How to Use “Click-to-Tweet” Links In Your Blog Posts

Using Click-to-Tweet links in your blog posts will help get your posts shared more often.

Every blogger wants more traffic to his or her blog, and using Tweetables is one way to get it.

There are several ways for inserting Click-to-Tweet links into your blog posts. Some are free, and some cost a small bit of money.

This post will cover these various methods.

If you have a self-hosted blog, you have more options for doing this (including plugins).

If you are a newbie blogger and are blogging for free on a platform such as Blogger or, then your options are limited. But there is still a way for you to insert Click-to-Tweet links into your posts!

All you have to do is execute these 10  easy-to-follow steps in the order that they are listed

This is a long and tedious process, but it works. (This is how I used to insert Tweetables when I was a newbie blogger back in 2013!)

10 Steps to inserting “Click to Tweet” or “Tweet This” links in your blog posts:

  1. Find something worthy of tweeting, and write it in your blog post, such as “Tweeting helps you gain followers!” (Tweet this)
  2. then click on the “get Shortlink” button and copy your post URL’s Shortlink (note that this is for the  WordPress platform; for Blogger, click on Permalink and copy your post URLs permalink) OR simply copy the permalink of your post’s URL, which is found right below the title of your post
  3. then shorten your permalink by going to, which is a URL shortener and copy the shortened URL that it generates
  4. then go to Click to Tweet  and
  5. then type your phrase, in my case, “Tweeting helps you gain followers!”, inside the text box
  6. (optional) add relevant hashtags to your Tweet so that it becomes a Perfect Tweet that will get retweeted!
  7. then paste the link generated by after this phrase and add via @yourtwitterhandle which, in my case is via @lorrainereguly (you don’t have to do this, but when you are on Twitter and are checking your @ mentions/notifications, you will be able to see how many people are actually Tweeting your Tweetable links)
  8. then click “generate link” and copy the URL it gives you
  9. then go to back to your blog post and type “Tweet this” in brackets (like I did in step one) after the phrase you want your readers to tweet,
  10. then highlight the words “Tweet this” and use the link icon to add the link you just copied from Click to Tweet so that when your readers click on “Tweet this,” they will be connected to their Twitter account and a textbox that is pre-populated with the phrase “Tweeting helps you gain followers!” and the link to the post that you are writing!

Make sure that you click on the “open link in new window” so that your readers don’t leave your website.

You can also change the color of the text (like I did) if you want it to stand out and really catch your reader’s eye.

If you are able to follow these simple instructions, you should have absolutely no problem adding “Tweet this” to your blog posts!

Other Methods for Using Click-to-Tweet Links

You could use a service such as Click-to-Tweet.

Of course, you could always try to figure out what Ana Hoffmann was trying to say in her instructions for how to do this, if you have an understanding of code and how coding works… or maybe Ramsay’s post, How to Add a “Click to Tweet” Link to Quotes Within Your Posts might help you gain a better understanding.

You might also want to use one of these recommended plugins (if you have your own, self-hosted site like I do now).

You can also use a plugin called Tweet Dis. (This is an affiliate link.)

I love TweetDis. It has a lot of options, looks nice, and has many neat features you can use.

Tweet Creation

Another tip to remember is to make your Tweets as short, or succinct, as possible so that when they are Re-Tweeted, or RT’d, there will be enough room in the 140-character box for all of the characters!

(Twitter adds the name of the person who is Re-Tweeting your Tweet TO THE TWEET. This is why you need to leave at least 15-20 characters free!)

Include a hashtag relevant to the topic of your Tweet, too, to increase the visibility of your Tweet.

Note that it is common practice to put it at the end, and to use no more than two hashtags, although sometimes people use three.
