One of the ideas I wanted to do was to integrate a WordPress blog with Twitter and Facebook.  I did some research.

This article showed a good method – Use WordPress to update Twitter & Facebook.  I signed up for an account at Twitterfeed.  It was very straightforward process.  I created a new feed and added the WordPress RSS feed URL.  I configured the links to Twitter and Facebook.

But, then I learned about FeedBurner.  The benefit of using FeedBurner was that you could then track the number of people looking at your RSS feed.  So, I created an account at FeedBurner and added the blog RSS feeds to create a new RSS feed.  I took that feed and added it to Twitterfeed.

This is a lot of setup work but does provide a lot of benefits in integrating social media with your WordPress blog and providing tracking.
