Since I’m using WordPress for blogging, I started looking for better ways to write posts. I don’t particularly enjoy using the WordPress interface for doing the actual writing and drafts and edits. I’m a bit concerned about losing my draft in case I press the wrong button or something. So I’ve been looking at ways to use Evernote to post to WordPress.
First, I love Evernote. It’s a great way to cut and paste anything I find on the web into one handy place. I don’t have to use bookmarks or save files to my desktop and organize them later. I just cut and paste into Evernote and it saves it for later. If you’re not using it, it’s a great research and organization tool.
Anyway, I also use Evernote for taking notes. I think Word is overkill, and Evernote is good because I usually already have it open, so I just pop open a new note and start writing. I figure it would be great to use Evernote to post to WordPress since I’m already using it for most of my writing. However I found that there’s no way to post directly from Evernote. There’s no plug-in. And nothing in the Evernote Trunk apps.
But I did find another blog that found a work-around. It’s the Post by Email feature built into WordPress. As long as you turn that on in your WordPress blog, you can email a note from Evernote directly into WordPress. Cool, eh? You do have to do some minor editing, so check out the article for some limitations and other tips.
