Want to share a post from another blog on your WordPress site? It is so simple and quick, I will have to call this a “Rick’s Sip” instead of a tip. In the time it takes to take of sip of coffee you can be sharing a great post from another blog on your site.
Next time you read a great post that you want to share, simply copy the link from your browser’s address bar and paste into your post to get this slick presentation. I am sharing this great article: It’s About Progress, Not Perfection by Gary Furr. This method produces this slick “sharing card”.

Here is example of the link:
The final step is to paste the link into your post and your done!
UPDATE: MailChimp power users that use the RSS feed to send out newsletter each time they post may find that the whole article is printing instead of an excerpt. I would recommend doing a test to see if this is the case with your newsletter. If so, skip this method and just use a basic link.
There you have in about the time it takes to take a sip of coffee, you have shared a great blog post on your site. Looking for other quick ways to share posts and articles from other sites? Check out Rick’s Tips: Make Blogging Easier With “Press This” For WordPress
