I’m infatuated with automation and workflow. For example, you should see how many apps I have on my iPhone…sad, just sad. Whenever I read about an app that can “change the world,” by automating two steps into one, well, just gotta download it and check it out!

Once and I while I will stumble upon a workflow that rocks. And I’ve found one for posting articles on my website and Medium. Here we go…

I’ve bought into Evernote. I paid for the first level of membership to have access to Evernote on multiple devices. Not only do I use it to capture documents and business cards, but I use it as my main writing app and to capture “read later” items from the web (Web Clipper extension mainly).

Evernote — MacOS Desktop Version

Let me back up a little. I’ve written a number of articles on Medium thus far, and I wanted to have these same articles on my personal website (WordPress platform). But, I didn’t want to play the copy/paste game and go back and forth between the two platforms.

For now, I write my articles in Evernote, then copy my completed article to my WordPress website; here, I add my images and fine-tune the article. On my WordPress site, I have installed a plug-in (made by Medium) that saves the blog post as a draft to my Medium account (GENIUS!).

WordPress Plug-In for Medium

You can change the preferences in the plugin to just post it to Medium, but I prefer to take a look at it an play with the formatting just a bit before the final post goes live.

Simple, right? Works for me! Hope this helps a little for those that ran into the same conundrum of double-posting to your website and to Medium.

I geek, therefore I am

    You could also use the evernote wordpress pluging to have your evernote blog card be auto posted to wordpress when you tag it “published” or whatever tag you like. It’s amazing!
