In a prior post I mentioned micro-blogging/tumblogging and how it can be a great way to share snippets of info. Now here’s a tool to make that faster and feel more natural.
This is also a great way to set up draft posts for memory joggers.
Press This: Blogging At The Speed of Share! Available in your Dashboard, under Tools -> Available Tools. PressThis is one of the most under-used tools in WordPress but is really very powerful particularly as content curation becomes increasingly important. It’s a simple browser bookmark that gives you a small post editor from whatever page you’re on and inserts the link to that page. It’s even smart enough on YouTube to offer you the embed code and let you easily embed the video by clicking “Insert Video” which is HOT!
I had to tinker a bit with it to get it working for one of my blogs but I’ll save that for another post. I can mark the post as published – or – as draft – allowing me to set up memory joggers and post ideas as I surf the web.
All in all I love it for speed!
Let me know what you think!
PS: If you find you are getting 404 errors with PressThis, here is a simple fix.
