Technical notes for the interested

Progress! Instant blogging + auto tweeting of latest post. You will need

  • WordPress
  • WordPress plugin – ‘Twitter Tools’
  • Quite a bit of fiddling around ensuring necessary WordPress server features are enabled
  • Optional: Windows ‘Live Writer’
  • More fiddling.
  • Result – Create your blog in ‘Live Writer” easy-peasy WYSIWYG – press publish – it is uploaded to your blog and a tweet is generated pointing to the new post.
  • Pretty useful! Took me about 3 hours mainly because did not know what I was doing.
