"Thrips", both singular and plural, refers to a whole slew of tiny insects.
Different types of thrips have very different appetites. My article explains more about them.

Writing Tip Regarding Thrips
There are two reasons for cross-promoting your articles.
First, the search engines notices that your article has inbound links. This gives your article a slightly higher ranking, compared to web pages that no-one else has referenced. Admittedly, it may not count for much if your blogs don't rank highly themselves; but it should not hurt too much.
Second, you might reach new readers for the article because they follow your blog. Possiby they found your blog when searching for the topic, instead of finding the main article.
Those are the effects I'm hoping for by publicizing my article about the thrips.
By the way, you writers may have noticed that all the article titles imply the ambiguity about thrips, because some are beneficial, others are neutral in certain settings, but we tend to focus on the thrips as insect pests.
