Easy Posting

This tip is for anyone who uses Firefox and who wants an easy way to post to a single blog or multiple blogs: get ScribeFire. I’ve just re-installed … my Christmas Eve hard drive crash is still making itself felt as I re-install this plugin or that application. (Secure Fetch was the most recent application.)

What does ScribeFire do?  The ScribeFire icon sits at the bottom of the browser. Through the magic of Web 2.0, when you activate (click) it, a transparent text box floats at the foot of the browser window, on top of whatever you’re viewing. (Think Snap Preview, but nicer and transparent). Select the blog you wish to post to, tick off your categories, and post!

It doesn’t work with everything — for example, I can’t post to my US Politics blog with it. But it does work with this blog and my class blogs, all of which are hosted at WordPress. See for yourself!
