Simultaneously update my facebook, twitter, and blog?

Is there a way to simultaneously update my facebook, twitter, and blog with an update? I am new to doing social media for an organization, and we want to be accessible in multiple formats. Any tips for how to do that effectively would be most appreciated.

Ping.fm will do all that and more I believe. If you only need to do update the FB and Twitter accounts, Tweetdeck works well too.

If you are running drupal for your blog, it can all do all three.

What type of Blog is it?

Posterous! Post stuff once (even by email, if you like), and it updates it wherever you want.

Seconding Ping.fm. Also, Hootsuite will update Facebook (personal accounts and Pages), Twitter, other social media accounts and blogs hosted at Wordpress.com (they're waiting for an open API that will allow self-hosted Wordpress blog updates).

Tumblr blogs can simultaneously post to Facebook and Twitter. But if you have a blog established already, it would be helpful to know what it is to provide the best set of options.

I think all these suggestions (ping.fm and posterous) are good examples. Posterous is good if your updates are blog centric ie if most of your updates will be related to blog postings. Another alternative dlvr.it is something I have recently discovered which gives a fairly advanced feature set which lets you create sets of information flows which can update one set of social networking updates to a large number of other sets. Probably worth investigating. The other reason why I like dlvr.it is that it shortnes your urls and gives you click through data which is nice to have I guess/

I think the blog is a self-hosted WordPress. We are using WordPress for sure, and the URL is our organization's not wordpress.org.

dlvr.it will take the RSS feed of your blog which the wordpress blog is amost certainly throwing out.
