So, I got the spreadsheet together (sorry I deleted the one that was on Google Drive), and brought it up to date. It was a lot of typing and cut-and-pasting, and that’s a drag, and I just knew that, if I had to update it manually after each post, I wouldn’t do it. Naturally, I turned to my go-to helper, IFTTT.
Long story short, I need to test my applet (they used to be formulas) and had to write a post to test it. Which is what this is…

Damien Riley, whose blog you should be reading, has been doing a lot of crossposting between WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and LiveJournal using IFTTT. I haven’t been quite as active on it, because I allow WordPress to post to Facebook and Twitter. I asked him why he doesn’t do that as well, and he told me it was because he couldn’t control what was being posted to social media as well with the WP built-in function.

I thought about it, and you know, he’s right. It works all right for Twitter, but on Facebook it just dumps part of the text of the post in my timeline and says there’s more, and doesn’t really put a link post out there. So, I’m going to try doing both of these with IFTTT and see if the result is more aesthethically pleasing. If you see the Facebook link post and/or the Tweet, how do you like the way they’re coming across?
I’m already using IFTTT to publicize my posts to Pinterest, where I have a board specifically set up for my posts here. I haven’t quite got the hang of Pinterest yet, but I’ve gotten better. I’m still publicizing to Google+ through WordPress, because IFTTT doesn’t post to it, and no one seems to know what the future holds for Google+, anyway….
We now return you to our regularly-scheduled program.
Rice Krispies (known as Rice Bubbles in Australia and New Zealand) is a breakfast cereal that was created by Clayton Rindlisbacher for the Kellogg company, and later marketed by Kellogg’s in 1927 and released to the public in 1928. Rice Krispies are made of crisped rice (rice and sugar paste that is formed into rice shapes or “berries”, cooked, dried and toasted), and expand forming very thin and hollowed out walls that are crunchy and crisp. When the cereal is subjected to a change in heat, the walls tend to collapse, creating the famous “Snap, crackle and pop” sounds.
Rice Krispies cereal is widely known and popular with a long advertising history, with the elfin cartoon characters Snap, Crackle, and Pop touting the brand. In 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded a short song for a Rice Krispies television advertisement.
