I have a various methods for distribution of the content I produce.
My gchat status, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Hacker News, Reddit, and more.
One thing I have learned about getting some extra distribution is that if you @ mention someone when you tweet it out, you have a high probability of having them retweet it, and subsequently more eyeballs will see your content.
That doesn’t mean you should @ mention random people with lots of followers hoping they will read it and RT. You should only @ mention people who are relevant to the piece.
I’ve done this both successfully and unsuccessfully before.
Success has come when there were either one or two people or companies @ mentioned that were highly relevant (two cases for me were: 1. @ mentioning Dave McClure on an post about great tech writers, and 2. @ mentioning Warby Parker in my article about them for Forbes).
Failure has come when I @ mention too many people, some of them not being super relevant to my post (earlier writing days).
Bottom line: If you are a relatively unknown tech blogger, a very valuable method to gain some initial traction is @ mentioning one or two people who are either relevant or included in the piece you are posting.
