Posting from ScribeFire!

I am posting this from ScribeFire! I will be interested to see how it turns out as this is the first time I have used ScribeFire.

ScribeFire which is an add-on to Firefox seems to work well. Once you have installed and set all the links to your blogs up, they are all there at your fingertips. You can blog on a screen that pops up or you can right-click (or left-click in many people's cases) on a page and select the blog option from ScribeFire. That will post your heading and url as a blog post to the selected blog. This is a fun discovery that I made quite serendipitously via Kat Clancy's wall on Facebook. Thanks for posting to my wall, Kat, and leading me to respond to you! The one downside seems to be that if you want to insert labels to the post you need to go to blogger to do that.

Except that you don't! You click on the categories tag, and either choose an existing category or add a new one! Remember: category = label!

Postscript: this doesn't seem to tinyurl properly. I have never had a problem before with my link to Twitter from blogger. I can only assume that the ScribeFire interface is causing a glitch. As I feed all my blog posts to Twitter, that is not going to work very well. I'll have to experiment more with this add-on. I suspect it may be causing a problem with my blogfeeds to Facebook as well. Sigh!!

When I'm procrastinating - more or less when Javascript has me stumped cos I hate the stupid language, I go google my name...and alas, I come across this post! I'm famous! No worries about posting it on your wall :-)

Kat, delighted that you equate being famous to being mentioned on my blog ;>) I never get such interesting things when I google MY name ;>)
