There is a thin margin separating good publicity and cheap publicity. I say, “If you have got it, you need to share it!”… in this age of information coming from every direction you need to filter out them and if you think you have a url (link) to an amazing article or blog post you just need to tell it to the world. The question at this point would be how?
One of the fastest way to share a blog post is to tweet about it, if it is really worth a read it may spread virally.
The retweet feature and URL shorteners really help in this pursuit.
2. Facebook, MySpace and Orkut
Social networking sites are the most easiest way to let your friends know about an interesting blog post.
Not all blog posts should be shared at LinkedIn. However, some blog posts are worthy of being shared by your business network on LinkedIn. Post a link to the Network Updates area in the homepage.
4. Digg, Delicious, Reddit and FriendFeed
You can digg the URL, bookmark to Delicious for not only sharing posts, but for helping categorize blog posts for others to find. In addition, you can import your delicious bookmarks to Facebook, FriendFeed, and other social media websites. Using the FriendFeed bookmarklet to quickly share a good blog post to FriendFeed is a nice experience. Reddit is quick and easy to submit a link
Just like retweeting, reblogging about a great article is one of the best ways to engage with the topics being discussed. Post a link, write some commentary, and share it with all of your readers. Now, you can also publicize your blog post.
StumbleUpon is one of most interesting and addictive new tools on the Web. When you go into the website of Stumbleupon.com you will notice a button saying “stumble”.

7. Google Reader

8. Tumblr or Posterous

9. TwitThat, Shareaholic Firefox Extension and Ping.fm
