Postach.io Blog of the Week (2)

Posted on December 19th, 1969 | By Gerd Meissner


How-How-Tips.info is powered by Postach.io, a free web publishing tool that turns any folder ("notebook") of your choice on the "Remember Everything" system Evernote (for Win/Mac/Andoid/iOS/Web) into a state-of-the-art blog.

Thus, Evernote has become the cross-platform Content Management System (CMS) of choice for many bloggers who prefer not to deal with the complexity - and security holes! - of "traditional" blogging platforms. Postach.io is so easy to use, you will probably never want to return to platforms like WordPress, Blogspot / Blogger or Tumblr for recreational or small business blogging.

All it takes to publish a new blog post on your Postach.io blog is to modify or create a note in Evernote - with embedded photo, video or even programming code snippets - and tag it "published." Out it goes. Done.

This post of my Postach.io Blog of the Week (not every week, though ;-) series introduces one more blog that I would rank among the Top 5 Resource Blogs for Postach.io Users.

The folks over at task automation web service IFTTT ("If This, Then That") still use Tumblr as their blogging platform. But the Evernote and blogging-related "recipes" IFTTT announces on its blog and provides on its site can turn any basic Postach.io blog into a publishing powerhouse - no web or app coding skills required.



Like Postach.io, IFTTT is all about simplicity. The free service enables non-programmers to create connections between Internet and smartphone services ("Channels") that they already use, and make those programs and apps work together.

All it takes is to create or activate basic "recipes," based on a simple concept:

If this, then that. We call 'this' the Trigger, and 'that' the Action. Together, it is a Recipe.


Example: If you use your Postach.io blog for mobile app reviews like this guy, you might take screenshots on your iPhone, then manually upload them or send them via email to Evernote.

Using the IFTTT recipe below, this task can be automated. In your own IFTTT account, just replace the EN notebook name "IFTTT iOS Screenshots" in the template with the name of your own Postach.io notebook in Evernote and activate the recipe:

IFTTT Recipe: Save iOS screenshots to Evernote notebook

Once you have activated your version of this recipe, each new iPhone or iPad screenshot will get automatically tagged and uploaded to your Postach.io blog folder.

This is just one basic example, you can choose from thousands of recipes or create your own, for example to send "teasers" of new Postach.io blog posts to your company's Facebook page.

Postach.io bloggers can learn about new blog-relevant channels and triggers from the IFTTT blog. Evernote users with travel blogs, for example, may welcome the recently introduced iOS Location Channel (December 2013). It automatically creates new Evernote entries (think: blog post drafts) each time the iPhone-equipped blogger visits a new place.
