Do you know many of my Facebook posts are found or replicated on my blog or website? Not all, but when I can.
There, you can see bigger pics and find related links as cross references. For example, looking at the Leaning Tower post, you will find convenient links (under Related Posts sidebar) to Mastan Ghani Mee Rebus, Liew Kee Chee Cheong Fun and other Teluk Anson stories.
It is not easy maintaining both. Imagine the drudgery of the repetitive chore when replicating content from social media. It was why many blogs fell out with the arrival of Facebook. One is easy and will lull you into disinclination of your blog, while the other requires work and maintenance of the CMS. Bloggers will understand the enigma.
Still nothing can beat a blog’s tagging, statistical analysis, internal search, revenue generating potential, search engine exposure and related links feature. The downside is it costs money to host and is nightmarish doing all the CMS and plug in updates.
I am happy that some of my posts from multiple blogs from as early as year 2000 were indexed and archived by search engines. With so much content from my past, I usually depend on search engines to find some of my own posts that I now only have faint memoirs. Ironic, isn’t it?
