How To Consolidate All Your Blog Posts From Different Sites to One Site 3

Problem: how do I consolidate my blogging into a single site? I post here on my main blog, but also on Up and Running, smbplans, gust.com, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur.com, SBA.gov, and elsewhere. For a while we had an employee building a database of links.

Solution: Take a look at blog.timberry.com. That site consolidates all my posts, pretty much in the order they come. And it happens automatically. I have the RSS feeds programmed into the site so that when a new blog post is published on any of them, it automatically shows up on my consolidated blog site (that’s shown in the illustration below).

That’s done with a new Rebelmouse feature that lets me take my rebelmouse site from www.rebelmouse.com/timsblogging/ and set that to be blog.timberry.com instead. Rebelmouse calls that powered sites, and here is the Mashable post yesterday that describes it. I can also set the page not to display the Rebelmouse-specific branding that I don’t want. For that I pay Rebelmouse $9.95 per month. (And please note the disclosure on my sidebar.)

Although Rebelmouse does a lot of different automatic feeds, like the classic Twitter and Facebook steams, in this case it’s just RSS, as shown below. What I love about this is how my new posts show up automatically. I just do the blogging and the site refreshes itself.

    Needed to compose you a little bit of remark to help give thanks over again just for the lovely methods you have contributed on this page. This has been quite open-handed with people like you to supply without restraint what many individuals would have you? vectors free download

    Tim: Great to hear about the new feature. I showed in a session at the potluck conference (WebCoast) in Gothenburg on March 17 how you could “visualize your lifestream on the net” with the help of RebelMouse. If you go to my SoundCloud account, you could listen to my session (in Swedish): “#teaftw #webcoast at WebCoast 2013.”
