Tech Friday – Adding the Postie plugin to WordPress

Posted By on February 22, 2013

After using Posterous to post by email to my blog I’ve grown use to being able to simply email a quick post with attachments on occasion. Now that Twitter is shutting down the Posterous blogging platform, I’m looking into new ways to do this. WordPress offers a simple “text only” posting, but there are a couple options using plugins that permit photos, video links, etc.

I’m trying Postie, which is a bit more complex, but offers all of the above without an outside server for content and cross posting. It makes the most sense and looks like it will work if I can remember how to code a few things. This post will be #3 by Postie and should include a full width photo, a link as well as a paragraph break and italics.


Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
