What's Symphony?

Ol' Myrt here is looking for ways to spend more time with the grandkids and less time at my computer. After some research, I'm moving auto-syndication of my blogs from Networked Blogs to it's new upgraded sister site Symphony. I've been learning about it the past two weeks.
Ol' Myrt here likes to post a blog, and not worry about getting the link out to my Facebook Group, Twitter and LinkedIn. Like I said, I'm trying to find more time for those grandkids.
Setup is easy!
Initially, I found Symphony a more user-friendly product than Networked Blogs, simply because I didn't have to temporarily post some obscure HTML code on my blog for proof that I am the blog author.

Content curating is a snap!
Symphony also permits me to readily spotlight your excellent content to my various Social Media outlets, something *not* offered by Networked Blogs. It's just a matter of installing a browser button, like I did for Pinterest.
Delayed posting
This is an option I haven't yet tried, I use scheduling for each post in As I said, I've only been using Symphony for about two weeks. I've got two more weeks to go with my trial membership, and already I like Symphony more than Networked Blogs.

Myrt's pitch
I'd like to recommend Symphony to other genealogy bloggers who may be interested in a 3-month trial. Admittedly, I receive a 1 year free subscription if you click to try Symphony. I'll receive credit even if you try using Symphony but don't decide to subscribe. It's a social networking marketing tool, and probably a good one.
The link to use:
I'm quite sure the folks at Symphony are smart enough to offer you the same extension of your trial period. That's how Dropbox went viral.
Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
