My little experiment using categories to automate selective syndication to Tumblr and Twitter failed. Posts were not showing up in either place, except for one post that showed up on Tumblr but formatting was screwy.

And even if that problem were resolved, it would drive me crazy to remember to check the little category boxes every time I post to

So for now I’m going back to my previous default: Automatically cross-post everything to Tumblr, which results in duplicate posts when reblogging from Tumblr. And manually post to Twitter.

I may revisit this another day. I expect I will.

@manton said yesterday that using automation to cross-post multiple categories might result in problems, and he suggested IFTTT instead for that case. But did I listen? Noooooooo.
