Okay, I see. Looking at what both you and Joe said, I think it probably 
won't hurt to having both hit the official channels, and it will 
probably help bring the CommBlog into people's feeds and help promote 
readership - I know I'm not a marketing master and you all have a decent 
amount more experience and knowledge than me anyways. :)

If it ever does become an issue, we can always just separate them in the 

In the meanwhile, I definitely think the best way to hook this up is 
with Jetpack. My understanding is that it just requires someone who is 
both a Magazine / CommBlog admin and also has the keys to the social 
media accounts to set up automatic posting. This should be doable at 
this page:



Thanks all.
