Decided to change the Daily Twitter summary to a Weekly summary. Although I like the daily updates to the Blog, it’s to much clutter.
I’ve been testing this application since it was released & for V1 it’s pretty good! I’ve used various plug-ins to automate posting while mobile. This application solves all of that & makes Mo-Blogging a piece of cake. If you are a Blogger & a Blackberry user, check it out, I think you will be very happy with the results.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to keep up with all of my Social Networking responsibilities (Blog, Podcast, Twitter, Facebook & Flickr). As I was driving tonight (in a BAD rain storm) I got to thinking how I could make the most impact with the least amount of effort…
Turns out a LOT of other people share the same interest as there are a myriad of plug-ins for WordPress designed to link all of the various Social Networking sites together. My goal: Post an update/picture/video to a single location and have that information populate the Blog, update Twitter & ultimately Facebook.
After a little bit of research and some php editing I think I finally have everything working the way I want it. Since I have a different audience with each application it’s important to have control of who gets updates and who doesn’t. Normally, I usually want to broadcast to everyone.
My setup to broadcast to everyone:
- Email (from PC/Blackberry) to a pre-defined email address
- Postie for WordPress pickups the message and creates a post
- Twitter Tools auto posts any new Blog entry
- Facebook uses a Twitter application to post Tweets to my wall.
All in all it’s a pretty simple process that allows me to post to one group or many. Now I just have to come up with content that people are interested in!
Getting ready for a few upcoming (non-business) trips & searching the web for tools for blogging from the Blackberry. Anyone have suggestions for tools to check out? I can’t believe there are no WordPress apps for the BB!
I have the mobile plugin for wordpress that allows me to post while mobile but it’s pretty limited. No way to upload photos from the phone…
The Facebook & Twitter apps work really well & I plan on continuing to use those. Perhaps I should hook Twitter to the Blog? Hmmmmm….
