Make Blogging with WordPress Part of Your Daily Routine

Alexandra Samuel’s article “Make Blogging Part of Your Workflow” not only highlights WordPress as your blog of choice, but outlines a great step-by-step process of how to incorporate blogging into your daily work routine.

For all my tagging evangelism, I’ve been enigmatic and elusive about how I myself use tagging to be a better blogger, a better worker, and a better human being. But the whole reason I’ve become such a tagging fanatic is because it’s allowed me to dramatically streamline my workflow so that I can track and share resources much more effectively. Thanks to my Vice President of Documentation, I now have a summary of my integrated workflow using Spurl, del.icio.us, WordPress and FeedWordPress.

I use these tools together to:

* Store links to web sites I want to remember, along with an archive of each web page I store in case the original disappears.
* Blog easily about some of the sites I store, at the same time as I bookmark them.
* Make these blog entries look like regular blog entries, not like a linkroll.
* Keep my blog posts about a web site in the same categories that I use to tag that site in del.icio.us and Spurl.

He suggests that you tag interesting posts and articles with , and mark them as “blog this”. Using FeedWordPress, a WordPress Plugin that brings feeds into your WordPress blog, with a few keystrokes your tagged Spurl post is blogged and appears on your WordPress blog.

If your main blogging content style is to find interesting content and pages on the web and post about them, this is an ideal fast and easy method of keeping your WordPress blog well stocked with content.

    I’ve been using this Spurl-FeedWordPress technique for months, and it’s great.

    BTW, it’s Alexandra, not Alexander!

    Dear Lorelle:

    I just started blogging (first issue October, 2010). I have two blogs one on Blogspot http://amarprakash.blogspot.com and the other on Worldpress http://www.amarprakash.worldpress.com . I love writing and want to express my opinions and raise questions more than answers by my readers. My blog on Worldpress is not complete yet but I published it anyway. Your this blog gave me lot of great ideas. However, I am still missing some techniques on how to add pages or create links to new pages. Do you know of any blog that addresses that? Amar Prakash

      I missed the first part of your question. A blog is never finished. It sounds like you want more traffic, more exposure, more interaction with your readers. That’s about building a community. Have you focused on that with social media tools?

      As for the last question, WordPress.com has extensive help and support in multiple languages on how to create Pages and other technical how tos for WordPress.com. Have you looked into those? Links to new Pages are created automatically within your WordPress Theme, but you can put a link to them wherever you want in your sidebar or blog posts.
