Details on Current POSSE Setup

This post should only go to those places that support content of unlimited length. This will test some of my latest setup changes as well as share some insights into my current thinking in advance of a more fleshed out blog post. Basically, I popped for the pro upgrade for SNAP which lets me add more than one account per service. I add the same account a second time for each but configure each copy of the service a bit differently. One I configure to autopost anything in my usual blog categories with a template that includes an excerpt and a link. That mirrors a pretty typical setup of autoposting with a lot of common tools. The second copy of the service I configured to only autopost from specific categories I created for social sharing. The template I set on those pushes the full text of my post, without a link, so the result looks like I posted directly myself. I have auto-import configured for both copies of each service so all the social activity gets captured back to this my sites. For those special categories, I exclude them from my own feeds since they will be noisier, as well as my main page but they are visible in my site archives and if you view the respective categories directly. I set up three as follows: Life Stream to autopost everywhere which is useful for shorter updates, Short Form for when I want something to only got to Twitter like breaking up a longer update into multiple parts, and Long Form for when I want something to go out as is without worrying about length constraints (like this post.) I feel those latter two will let me write longer updates for appropriate syndication then re-write into multiple shorter updates if desired for the rest.
