As a followup to my post from the other day regarding managing your life online from anywhere, I thought I would take a minute to explain how you can create blog posts for WordPress as easily as you would write an e-mail.
Some might find it annoying (as I do) to login to your WordPress control panel just to write a blog post. Additionally, those posting on the run via a mobile device will find posting via e-mail is much easier than logging into the control panel.
In order to post to your WordPress blog via e-mail, do the following:
1. Login to you WordPress control panel (just this once)
2. Click “Settings”
3. Click “Writing”
3. Look for the section that says “Post via e-mail”
4. Use this section to create a customized e-mail address that only you know and begin sending your posts (just as you would an e-mail) to that e-mail address.
As you may have imagined, the Subject of the e-mail you write will be the Title of your post, the Body will be your actual posted content and any attached pictures will be the pictures that get included with your post.
Pretty much as simple as that. If you have any questions…shoot us a comment!
