ProTip: How To Blog Fast– Professional Style

Send to Kindle

I love that my wordpress blog: http://sparkah.com/guerrilla-marketing-strategies 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 http://sparkah.com/blog or http://journik.com/convergence … 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:

Posterous-images

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

Media_httpimgibtimesc_wcofc

4. Same with Youtube videos:

Posterous-youtube

They will look like this:

What it Looks Like From The “Create a Post” Window:

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

Posterous-compose

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

(i gotta publish this post before i can take a screen shot to insert here!)

Finally, This Is What It Looks Like After Auto Formatting and Upload to WordPress:

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to read content from other writers and follow a bit of something from their store. I�d want to use some with the content on my blog whether you don�t mind. Natually I�ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
