How can I help people find posts?
The phrase, "If we make it, they will come" is not TRUE. You need to "advertise" it:

Make sure people can subscribe to the blog.
Thank and respond to people on the blog post.
Remember that SSU uses moveabletype.
Remember that social media presents your public face.
If you've been receiving multiple requests, usually Facebook is the place to start.
Remember that Facebook is time consuming, if you can't meet the commitment, you may be better off denying the request.
The most common way to find web pages is through Google.
Google + is an excellent tool for increasing SEO. When people plus your content, that content moves up in google search.
Be sure that your about section in Facebook, Linkedin and in Twitter include your link.
Occasionally put a blog to post on your website, Twitter or on Facebook.
(be cautious with this approach)
Use Google Analyst to tract and measure website traffic.
In Twitter include a link to your website on email signature.

Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet or Google+ post – at the beginning, middle, or end.
Only searchable in Twitter & Google+ not Facebook.
In this Prezi, if at any point, you get confused with concepts of terms, please refer to the 1st Prezi.
