Tech question: best way to link my blog, facebook page and LinkedIn?

I am a reasonably adept writer, but tech stuff largely eludes me. Now that I have kicked the job to the curb, I am free to do as I please and I have come out of the closet (i.e. used my real name) on my blog. As such, I would like to link up my facebook page, blogger blog, and linkedin profile in the most efficient and automatic way possible. Anyone done this before? Do I just need the right widget?

There are various plugins that will let people follow you on whatever social media you use. On my blog, I use one called shareholic. You can set up what buttons you want to have on there.

I also have buttons that let people share posts on social media.

I use wordpress, which has a plugin to tie my posts to Facebook and Twitter (when I'm blogging). Am not remotely familiar with blogspot that you are using.

And I don't tie it to LinkedIn, just because I don't use it and it isn't really relevant to what I'm writing about (our travels).

Have you looked at Wordpress?

Here is the link to shareaholic:

https://shareaholic.com/

I have a self-hosted wordpress blog so I don't know if it works with blogspot or not.

FWIW, I am not that great on the technical end of things myself so I used this person to help me set up my blog and add the various things I wanted added (I have no financial connection with this person, just was satisfied with the services and the very, very reasonable cost):

At this point I want to keep things simple and stay with Blogger/BlogSpot. Moving a whole platform is not in the cards.
