I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to maintain my blog on a regular basis. One of the problems I have is I don’t remember to go to my blog admin side and post a new blog. I need an easier way to post to my blogs that requires the minimal amount of steps and yet provides flexibility and features.
I’ve looked at tools like Posterous and even the built-in feature of WordPress that allowed for posts to be sent via e-mail.
Even though Posterous provides some great features for blogging to multiple services at once an allowing the embedding of HTML, images, mp3’s and videos, one difficulty I noticed was that it didn’t handle WordPress tags or categories very well.
Then comes around ScribeFire. ScribeFire is a Mozilla Firefox extension that allows for posting to various blogs. I use Mozilla Firefox for all my browsing needs – and being that I’m in the web industry, I’m on Firefox for a large part of the day.
Here some of the reasons why I like ScribeFire (BTW, this post is using ScribeFire):
its part of Firefox which I am already using a lot
it has a WYSIWYG editor
it can easily tag and categorize my posts in my blog
it allows for easily sharing YouTube videos
if I find a webpage that is interesting, it has a built function that allow me to start blogging about a page
I’m sure there are other great things about ScribeFire – why don’t you share them with me in a comment.
