I wanted to create a simple process for an aspiring author to write and post an article which, when executed, would automically create a blog post and subsequently autopost to the authors various social networks.
To do this, I built an integrated process by utilising the wordpress platform and various plugin components.
The major component pieces to this are:
- wordpress as a platform with two plugins installed
a. Publicize from Jetpack
- An email client from which the blog post is sent. This signal the author path.
- An email mailbox that acts as the receiver and source of post requests
- An author with logins and appropriate access across:
a. The blog
b. WordPress.com as a bridge
c. Email client
d. Appropriate social media eg FB, Twitter etc
To operate this process, each time an author wants to create a blog post, all they have to do is write an email and send it to the corresponding auto post mailbox, after which the posting and publicizing will automatically take place.
