Flickr, SmugMug, and WordPress

Flickr Back in 2005, I signed up for an account on Flickr. I wanted to be able to share albums of photos with friends and family, and Flickr did that incredibly well. https://danielhedrick.smugmug.com/Personal-Galleries/Oregon/n-FfWd2Q/i-q4XM3wJ/A Very first photo uploaded to Flickr Eventually, I started making photos public, and discovered the Flickr community. I’ve had exactly one photo … Continue reading Flickr, SmugMug, and WordPress

TUESDAY TIPS: Post-It Notes and the Blog Wall

Apologies for the late post, and for being MIA for the last few weeks. I've been a little OCD about the design of the site, and slacked off on the actual content. I'm a visual person. If something isn't in front of my face, chances are I'll forget it. So when Evernote and Post-It Notes … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: Post-It Notes and the Blog Wall

TUESDAY TIPS: Migrating from Posterous

If you haven't heard yet, Posterous is shutting down on April 30th. I loved Posterous. Almost as much as I love Evernote. It was the best service available for sharing content just about anywhere. You could send one email, and Posterous would create a blog post, do whatever was necessary to make any attachments look … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: Migrating from Posterous

iA Writer for Mac and iOS

I've been using iA Writer on my iPad for awhile now, and just realized I could get it on my Mac. Apparently, it's half price right now, so it was totally worth the $4.99 price tag. I'd have paid full-price for this app. On the iPad, it's a distraction-free, full-screen writing app with minimal bells … Continue reading iA Writer for Mac and iOS

Blogging with EverClip on iOS

Like I said in the last post, I like to use Evernote to draft my blog posts. This works great on the laptop, but what about when my phone is all I have? I was just simplifying posts by keeping them to text with one image, or drafting the text on my phone, then waiting till … Continue reading Blogging with EverClip on iOS

Quick Tip: Evernote and blogging with WordPress

I like to write my blog posts in Evernote, complete with images. Once a post is written, proofread, tweaked, etc. in Evernote, I'd copy/paste the text into WordPress' HTML editor. (Pasting into the HTML editor instead of the Visual editor gets rid of any extra Evernote HTML.) Once the text was in the editor field, … Continue reading Quick Tip: Evernote and blogging with WordPress

Moving to WordPress.com

I decided to pull the trigger on moving my sites to WordPress.com. I really hope Posterous survives the Twitter acquisition, but I'm not sticking around long enough to find out. I'm also working on eliminating my hosting account at Dreamhost. $120/year was fine when I was hosting a bunch of custom sites, but I don't … Continue reading Moving to WordPress.com
