Shrinking your blog posts’ permalinks (on existing or newly created blog posts) and then sending a tweet out for them can be a hassle — especially if you have multiple twitter accounts. Luckily, you can automate this process and auto tweet your blog posts right from your wordpress website using Pretty Link Pro. Hopefully this article will show you how this can save you time and the simple steps you’ll need to go through to get this auto tweet feature working for you.
So I just got back from BlogWorld Expo / WordCamp Las Vegas 2009 — it was awesome! Since it seems like everyone is talking about this event now — I just want to focus on my own personal experiences and things that I learned. Here are some of the highlights and takeaways from the event:

Let me know if you’ll be there so we can meet up.
There are already a few activities that are being organized after the conference that I’m planning on attending.
1. Thursday Night @10pm — There’s a photo walk out on the strip that I’m planning on attending. This one’s been organized by Victor Cajiao of the Typical Shutterbug Podcast.
2. Saturday Night @7pm — John P. from One Man’s Blog & Woopra has organized another photo walk that will be down on Freemont street in old Las Vegas … looking forward to this one a lot. You can read more about it on his blog.
Of course, I’m sure some fun stuff will come together for Friday night as well … but no matter what, feel free to contact me so we can hang out.
