I have a small video web site (hosted with Wordpress), a subreddit, a YouTube channel and Twitter. Once in a while one of my videos gets some attention on reddit and I'm having trouble keeping my presence in all three areas in sync now.

My current process involves uploading a new video to YouTube, updating my personal site, posting a new thread in my subreddit and then finally making a Twitter post (if I feel it's warranted for this particular video). This is time consuming and requires I perform each of those steps.

I don't have commenting enabled in Wordpress. Instead I encourage people to visit the subreddit thread. This means I need to update the Wordpress post once the reddit thread is made, adding yet another step.

I'd like to focus more on the content and community that is developing, rather than managing each of these platforms. I want to keep my Wordpress site, as it's the portfolio I use to show my work.

What are some effective strategies for keeping multiple platforms in sync?

  • Are you looking for a technical solution (ie. a single application) to keep everything synchronized or more generic workflow strategies? – Andy Apr 16 '18 at 13:01
  • Both, if possible. I read over the linked post and it seems that may not be allowed. If not, workflows would still be helpful. – Overwhelmed Apr 16 '18 at 13:34
  • @Overwhelmed personally, I don't think that the technical portion is off-topic either, but we won't be able to help with "platform building", just with suggesting how available tooling may be able to help and what kind of processes can help. – AJ Henderson Apr 17 '18 at 14:29
  • That sounds great @AJHenderson! That would help me a lot. – Overwhelmed Apr 18 '18 at 12:29
