3 Alternative Ways To Post To WordPress

Tweet

Did you know that you can post to a WordPress blog in a number of different ways? Here are 3 alternatives to create content in WordPress other than logging into the blog admin using the built-in editor.

Post via Email

Built into WordPress is the ability for the software to check an email account and post each message it finds to a blog. This serves as a quick and easy way to send an email message and publish new content.

To set this feature up, the fist thing you’ll need is a custom, secret, email account. Since WordPress posts everything that goes to this account, it can’t be one that serves more than one purpose, or that gets spam.

Once you have that, go into WordPress and go to the Settings > Writing page. There you’ll be asked for your email server, email login, and password.

The new world of mistrust music

Thanks for visiting “The world of mistrust (music)”. I’ve moved! I’m now at

Please come on over and see my new website and my new blog. I’ll still be posting stuff about Facebook, Soundcloud, and most of all, my music! I’ll also be giving away some exclusive tracks to subscribers to my blog!

What’s up?

You’re now looking at the “sticky” page for my blog “The world of mistrust music”. However, the time has come to finish posting on WordPress.com and to begin to post on my new blog. Same me, same topics of discussion. So, if you’re following me on a Feed reader, please add

Up Peel Monument

Hello, it’s been a long time since I posted a new missive on this blog! All of you who subscribe via feed readers etc must be shocked to see me posting again. Well, what have I been doing over the last few months? It seems like not a lot! Actually, I’ve been trying to keep fairly fit and healthy, doing a lot of walking – mainly taking Paul up to Peel Monument (see the photo – it’s near Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester). It’s an old folly on top of a hill, 1100 feet above sea level, and a very steep climb. I’ve also been taking the dog for a walk, about 2.5 miles, three or four times a week in the evenings. It feels like I’ve lost some weight around my middle, so it’s doing something!

I’ve also been trying to get some new tunes written, but severely lacking some inspiration. I’ve got some ideas in my head, proper ideas, rather than just fiddling with loops from a cover disc. I’ve been using a vst host called Minihost, which loads a vst plugin and lets you use your computer keyboard to place the vst instrument. It’s got a built in chord maker, arpeggiator, and sequencer, which is great for fiddling around with. My 5 y.o. also likes playing with it – saying he’s playing Kraftwerk’s Man Machine, and the Dr Who theme tune! Expect some new tunes soon…from him, not me! Only kidding….

The Rude Mechanicals remix I did for NZ band Pitch Black is still around on the web and on the band’s remix CD, Rhythm, Sound and Movement. The remix is also going to be used to promote a big music and arts festival in New Zealand, called Splore. More news to follow soon. I’m also going to meet Paddy and Mike from Pitch Black at the end of October when they play their only UK gig in London. I’m also supposed to be getting the stems to remix a track by International Observer.

Other stuff….been doing a lot of Moodle stuff at work – very busy these days. I’ve also made a website for Paul’s dad and his painting and decorating business, D and S Decorators.  Oh, and I’m now on Facebook, and Twitter, so follow me on there if you’re on there….

Catching up

First, a few changes/updates I’ve made to this blog:

– I’ve reverted to the “everything’s gone green” theme from last year (see why below).
– Most of my old songs and tunes are now available as free direct downloads in my Music page.
– I’ve reorganised my links on the blogroll-type list, and included some new friends.

Still more changes to be made though…

Too much time on Twitter recently has left me little time for my proper blog here on WordPress, and even less time for changing the homepage at mistrustmusic.co.uk. I realised the other week that the link on the homepage still pointed to my blog entry about my Rude Mechanicals remix being released last October. I guess it was still relevant at the moment, but now it’s coming out on the Pitch Black remix CD at the end of April, I need to update it. Cue redesign in Dreamweaver! I’m trying to tie in the design of the homepage to my photo of Talacre Beach that people have commented on, along with this wordpress blog. Vincesapplemac (Vince Elgey), one of my twitter friends, keeps telling me to go the self-hosting route and install a wordpress.org blog so I can change the theme to something more individual than the wordpress.com themes.  Maybe he’s right, but I need to get organised first! In the meantime, I’ll probably add a couple of pages to mistrustmusic, including links to all my music.

Other recent news/updates

Henry in New Zealand, who is definitely my number one fan, is still plugging my Rude Mechanicals remix! Can’t thank him enough.

I’ve made quite a few new friends on Twitter – as I mentioned earlier, so hello to everyone on there. I’ve also invented  a couple of new categories  on there: #fickletwittering and #unfollowed. If you’re a twitterer, have a look for them to discover what they mean! If not, all will be explained in my next post on here. 

I’m going to see Ultravox in concert next week, and getting very excited about it! For those who don’t know them, they were big in the 1980s, and have just reformed for a one-off tour. I’ll hopefully be twittering from there and post some photos up in twitpic. The last time I saw Ultravox (in 1984), they were using a lot of pre-MIDI equipment, things like the ARP Odyssey and Yamaha CS80, so it will be interesting to see  how they recreate the songs using things like the MacBook Pro… (Follow them on Twitter!)

I’ve sent Animat some video clips I took of them performing the live score of Tuvalu in Leeds a few weeks ago. Some of the clips are very dark, but they may put some on Youtube

My songs on MusicFreedom have disappeared, in fact MusicFreedom.com has disappeared!

Paul, my 16 y.o. stepson with Autism, is still out of school, however he’s visiting a special school for an hour or two twice a week, which is progress…

Really need to publish more updates on here!

By the way – the photo of the tree is one I took on my new Sony Ericsson phone.
