Email articles to your own blog.

A great feature of WordPress is the ability to use my own email program to add articles to my blog. Right now I am typing this article in Mac’s mail program. You can do this with your blog from any email program, whether it be Outlook Express, or your online gmail account. This is a great and easy way to add content to your blog.

First we simply set up a special email account that would be tied specifically to the blog with your website’s hosting provider. Next we add the email settings to WordPress in the administration panel. And the only thing we have left to do is to open a new email window and type away. You then just send the email to your special blog email address. Congratulations, you have just added a new article to your blog.

Of course, the one drawback to this feature is that you must not reveal this email address to others or they will also be able to post to your blog. If this is a feature you would like added to your website, give me a call or send me an email.
