Makeuseof's Joel Lee suggests "Keep It Simple, Stupid" (no offense taken) and highlights 7 No-Fuss Online Tools For The Lazy Blogger. Postach.io comes in 2nd, the author finds that its "real benefit is that Postach.io will always be as powerful and flexible as Evernote."
Jason Darrell was looking for a way to share Paper.li with ease via IFTTT on Tumblr, but Paper.li's format restricted the quality of any recipe. He found a way, though, via Postach.io, and explains it here.
acelticmonk shared a recipe on IFTTT, for those who want to blog public Instagram videos with a specific tag via Postach.io:
"MacPsych" Richard MacKinnon presented his personal Postach.io features wishlist: What I need from Postach.io. In the comment section, Lindsey C. Holmes (Evernote Small Business Ambassador and author of "Blogging w/Evernote") outs her site http://lindseycholmes.com as a "custom Postach.io" blog - read: on (Rebelmouse) steroids.
Marketing Blog 101 posted a chat with NYC-based copywriter and blogger Alex Yong (http://TechMania411.net), who puts a number to the reasons why he likes Postach.io: "I save over $2,200 a year with Postach.io instead of using a fancier site for writers’ portfolios - those can cost over $195 a month, sometimes more!"
Confession - in a remote corner of the Interwebs, I've kept some Google Blogger (formerly Blogspot) blogs more or less alive. I'd probably have them migrated to WordPress long ago if it weren't for the item pictured below that's been gathering dust on Postach.io's beta dashboard (hope springs eternally) - only to learn from the Vancouver-based startup last week that they still have no ETA yet for that ominous promised import feature / tool to import Blogger into Postach.io to be released - can we get more specific, please?
Phew... - in the second paragraph of this digest, I promised "two-sentence nutshells." If you made it this far, thanks for holding your breath and sticking with me through that last paragraph!
