Setting up Postie

For awhile I’ve wanted to setup email posting for this blog, mostly so I can post from my mobile phone when I’m away from my computer. Not that I have an immense amount of profound stuff to say, but sometimes there’s more than will fit in a 140 word Tweet.

So today I installed Postie, a WordPress plugin that will post whatever’s sent to a specified email address. WordPress has this functionality natively, but actually getting the post to publish is a bit convoluted and it can’t deal with images.

This post was thus created with Postie as a test of sorts. If it’s successful I’ll try posting an image from my mobile tomorrow.

Sometimes figuring out all the tools is as much fun as writing…
