Sometimes I get asked how I manage my blogs and what my workflow looks like.

To give some insight information first the workflow when using internet resources:

  1. Google ReaderRead updated feeds (I just scan the feeds to get a general idea what the post is about)
  2. Google Reader – Star interesting feeds (first part of filtering process)
  3. Google Reader – Read starred items (now I read the feed items elaborately)
  4. Google Reader / Firefox- Open interesting starred items in new tabs ()second part of the filtering process)
  5. FirefoxRead full articles comments (final decision making whether or not to use a post of interest)
  6. Firefox / Performancing for FirefoxStart draft post for specific blog (I hit F8 and start writing my draft while the selected referring post is in the same window, then I post the draft to a specific blog)
  7. Firefox / WordPressI tweak the post to its final version in WordPress (With the preview pane I know for sure that the final version will look okay in my blog’s theme, and I can fiddle with text, ad and picture alignment etc.)
  8. WordPress – Publish

When writing from an idea or simply said, from scratch:

  1. Moleskine notebook fountain pen – Idea notes
  2. ECTOWrite and edit draft
  3. ECTO – Post draft to a specific blog
  4. Firefox / WordPress – I tweak the post to its final version in WordPress (With the preview pane I know for sure that the final version will look okay in my blog’s theme, and I can fiddle with text, ad and picture alignment etc.)
  5. WordPress – Publish

That’s it!
