So, it’s the Monday after vacation. Back to the groove, getting up early, doing the school thing. The kids seem to be settling back in, and mom does too, for all intents and purposes.
I’ve been playing around a bit with InoReader today. As sad as I was to see Google Reader go, the more I use InoReader, the more I like it. I recently learned that, in addition to all the sharing features it has, you can also customize where you share to. For instance, Facebook and Twitter are standard sharing options, but WordPress is not. Today I was able to add a WordPress sharing button to my InoReader so that I can just click a button to share something I come across in my reader straight to my blog. And it’s easy-peasy mac and cheezy! They even give you the url format right there in the menu, all you have to do is change the default “you” in the url to your own blog name. (The part that comes before the dot wordpress.) It opens the Press This window and from there, it’s just a click away to get the article to your blog. See it, share it!
I’ve also done a bit of a change-up on my blog. I switched to a theme that has post options. My thought was, if I can use a post format like the “aside” one, then, with all the connections between my blog and social sites, I can post one time on my blog, and it will show up like a post on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and, whew!, it does! How cool is that? I also want to play more with some of the other post options that I’m not familiar with, to see what they do and how they do it.
Of course, if I subscribe to my own blog in InoReader, I could also share my blog posts out to social media that way, too. Options, you know, good things.
How was your Easter — Resurrection Sunday — Feast of First Fruits? Ours was awesome – tons of food and lots of play and relaxing. Lots of remembering why we cherish that day.
