IFTTT Crosspost test

Well, we've gone and done it.  Crossposting is theoretically set up via IFTTT now, so this post should serve as a test to see how it functions and looks.

It's nice, actually, to have a central hub to manage all of the silly crosspost behavior.  I still have a couple of services managing their own crossposting, ex. soundcloud should be posting to fb+twitter+tumblr itself (hopefully *correctly*, now that i've fixed up its settings), and youtube posts to twitter automatically but IFTTT manages the connection to facebook.

Might be funny/interesting to visualize all of the connections and spaces with a diagram...I've got FB, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, DeviantArt, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Twitch, G+, ...

Edit: Now that we have this all working properly, perhaps I can abandon posting to FB and Twitter manually except to do what those platforms are best for: Shameless self-promotion!  That's right; who needs status updates when you've got good ol blogging? :)
