ProTip: How To Blog Fast– Professional Style

Send to Kindle

I love that my wordpress blog: gets tons of Google traffic. I hate how hard it is to resize pictures and format embedded videos and media in wordpress though.

So here’s how I finish a blog post for upload to WordPress and syndication in Tumblr, and Blogger in 12 minutes:

1. Set up autoposting from Posterous to your WordPress or Tumblr or Blogger.
(if you’re a guest blogger for or … I’ve already done this part for you)

2. Do all your blog posts in Posterous.

3. When embedding a picture, just paste the LINK to the photo into your post.
No more messing with windows or <img> tags. Posterous auto sizes the photo for you:

Just make sure the photo is in it’s own paragraph– alone. It will look like this:

4. Same with Youtube videos:

They will look like this:

And this is what it looks like before I hit the “GREEN Publish” button:

Next, Make Sure Your Blog Post Shows Up In Your Other Blogs. If Not, Click:
