Yesterday a web designer e-mailed me this question:
“We have a client who wants to be able to post an article to their WordPress blog and have it show up on their Web site.

Great question. If your blog is on Blogger or WordPress, you might want to promote your most recent blog posts on your website too.
Publishing blog post titles, a link and a short description of your most recent blog articles on your web page keeps your company’s website fresh. It also helps you get more subscribers to your blog.
