If you run a blog or a podcast, promoting your material can take as much time (or more) than content creation itself. Just like a small business marketing and promoting your efforts take time, effort and energy that can take you away from what you'd rather be doing: making great stuff.

This podcast discusses the germ of an idea, and its fledgling implementation, for creating an open-source tool for managing the distribution of posts to social media and doing it in as non-spammy a way as possible.

The premise is simple: take information from a number of disparate sources, and promote it to a number of disparate destinations. The challenge is doing it without violating the social norms of the destination networks, and without crossing the line between promotion and spaminess.

Good plan


Good idea and also useful for HPR. Can you give us some sample files to work from please.

Can you also give us clearer view on what the Inputs and Outputs are, as well as rules that you want.

You mentioned ifthisthenthat ( IFTTT ) but reading https://ifttt.com/privacy would not lend itself to FLOSS solution.
