Hello Guys, So you have a Website. You publish a post/article but, Where To Share Blog Posts?
If you are old or new to blogging this is a very interesting idea no doubt. Of course, you have your Facebook, Twitter, and others such as Pinterest, Reddit, and Instagram. These are the basic ones I think.
Most people will have at least 1, or 2 of these accounts but if you have a website you may have very likely considered using all 5.
I don’t blame you but I am a great believer that you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin.
However, I am probably the worst when it comes to this idea.
At current, I have this website, my health website, a meditation website (that I hardly post on), and my eBay business.
Plus I try to do Facebook and Email Marketing on the side.
Winding my neck in is an understatement! lol but still I am interested in doing more 😎
Sharing my content in more places. I have thought about doing this for a while but nothing ever came of it.
Until about a month ago I came across a new plugin called Sassy Social Shares, and this what this blog post today will be about.
This plugin and the 50+ places that people where you and your audience can share your content online.
This is utterly mindblowing as you will see.
Where To Share Blog Posts –
50+ Websites Revealed!
This is 91 Share Buttons HERE if I’m counting properly. You can upgrade as well and I think there is more! (Not Confirmed).
Quite frankly (I don’t think) I have heard of half of them lol. I want to find out more about them though, and I’m sure I will. The reason I got this plugin wasn’t actually for this purpose. Why I actually got this was so I could add links to My Social Media Accounts as buttons in the WordPress widgets.
“This is another good reason to get this plugin”.
Honestly, and I was actually quite happy before this with Grow by Mediavine and just using the 3 buttons for just Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Although when I got Sassy Social Shares I wished I had got it sooner.
I never even thought of getting this until one of my students who I’m coaching wanted Social Media buttons in their footer. Honestly, I didn’t know how to do this until then. This was on the advice from the Wealthy Affiliate community, I recommended this plugin as the solution but I installed it myself too.
Once I did the idea of sharing in all these new places suddenly become a lot more apparent.

What Are These Different Places?
Well, let’s explore, shall we…
So we will go through these as rows instead of columns.
We have of course Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I have only personally started using LinkedIn because of this plugin. So first plus for me. You also have in this first-row Print, Email, and Gab.
Gab is like Facebook. It’s a bit more modern and its biggest claim is it is free of censorship. Definitely worth a join I think.
Next row: You have got Reddit and Pinterest. Digg, Float It, Tumblr, and Vkontakte
VKontakte or VK a very popular social media platform in Russia. Reddit and Pinterest you likely know about. Tumblr is quite a popular platform too. But Digg is a news-sharing site which depending on your content is 100% worth a join. Float It I am not even sure what it is but next row.
Then we have Xing (a similar platform to LinkedIn), WhatsApp, Instagram, Yummly (for sharing recipes), Buffer (for building your brand/social network), and Parler (Another Free Speech Network like Gab).
- AIM (No longer available),
- Amazon Wish List,
- AOL Mail (Share your content with your contacts in AOL mail)
- App.net (No longer available),

My Personal Picks
The usual websites where I share my content are;
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, and Quora. Plus Mix, Flipboard, and Pocket.
Since joining Sassy Social Shares the one’s I may use going forward are;
Digg, LinkedIn, Xing, Gab, Buffer, MeWe, Plurk, and LiveJournal.
So, I joined Gab and MeWe after getting this plugin. I had LinkedIn for a very short while before but very easy to share to similar to Facebook and Twitter. Gab and MeWe I think are quite straightforward to use. In my opinion, you would really hope it’s your visitors using these share buttons but still, these are all different corners on the internet you can try and reach.
Each place you share is a potential backlink. Even the Non-English websites so it is worth them being there. Even if they are only used by your visitors. Using every single one yourself might be a bit of a chore but some to consider as well are the Social Bookmarking websites.

Social Bookmarking Websites
So amongst the share buttons on Sassy Social Shares are quite a few websites that can be considered as Social Bookmarking websites. Sharing to these websites is usually pretty straightforward. They are actually designed for people to save the posts they want to revisit later. However, as an owner of a blog or website, you can also share your own content.
The benefit of this is really 2 things. One you can get a backlink and two others may Stumble upon your work.
Here are a few you can try which you can share with the plugin;
- Google Bookmarks
Well, before I go there is one thing I will say. Definitely keep an open mind but be careful. Whilst it is great sharing your content to new places still don’t let this make you neglect other areas. Say if your main thing is Twitter and Pinterest still try and keep your focus on building your following there.
But on these new platforms still try to follow new people every time you use them. You never know which ones might take off. Even if you follow one or two people it may not be worth it. Although if by chance you do get a message or any interaction as a result you never know what opportunity might come as a result.
My logic is to follow people and hope they follow back. Either way I hope this guide has been helpful.
You can easily find Sassy Social Shares by typing into the WordPress plugin search but if you wish to download and upload to WP manually you can download here
Finally if you know anyone that might find this blog helpful check out the Sassy Social Share buttons in the floating box to the left. Please share to any websites you can and to any people that may benefit from reading this information.
