Want to Simulcast between blogs?

Wow!

I’ve had a Blogger Website for years but maintaining two became too much so I let the Blogger go dormant.

Thanks to the latest post over at Blogging from A to Z I learned how to simulcast from my WordPress blog to my blogger blog.

Get the info on how you too can automate your info. Go to Blogging from A to Z and give IFTTT a try.

This is my first go but according to the IFTTT website you can simulcast between other applications such as Facebook and Twitter too.

I love, love, love finding new tech tips!

More Housecleaning

Let’s be honest, cleaning house is the worst.

View from aboveI don’t know about you, but I’ve dreaded chores since Mom taught me to scrub that first toilet. Housekeeping never seem to end, unless you’re one of the lucky ten percent with live-in help. 

 

When did you last cleanup your hard drive?

 

NEW YORK - JULY 25: Matilde Hoffman works on h...More often than not, I delay my digital chores until my computer begins to drag. Sunday I discovered another chore to add to my growing list.

Planning your digital afterlife.

In addition to laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, updating my software and defragging my computer, we must plan our digital afterlife.

What would happen to your on-line accounts, if God forbid, something happened to you?

Well, unless you take care of a few digital chores, you might not like the outcome. Ever thought about all your correspondence, photos and emails? Who would see them? Time to make sure the only people you trust can access your information.

If you don’t want to deal with this yourself, hire a service. Yes, like apps, there is a service for everything. Go figure, I never thought of offering such a service. Don’t believe me, Google it…

However, Google has a tool to get you started. Check out the Inactive Account Manager. 

 

Facebook has a page on deleting or memorializing accounts.

Twitter will deactivate your account if contacted by your estate. That’s fine by me.

The website Modern Loss list the links to deactivate pages for family members such as PayPal, Instagram, and more.

You can read an in-depth article by Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press.

That’s it for today. It’s Monday and the chores are piling up, need to get busy.

Blog 2 Book in Minutes

Do you want to make a book?

Do you want to preserve your blogs?

highlighting modren communication thru a blogMaybe I’m slower than molasses, because I’m sure everyone and their dog already knows how to do this, but I’m still super stoked. Today I discovered a great website. Blog2print!

For $7.95 I downloaded my blog in a digital book format. Does it look professional and ready to sell on Amazon? No, but now I have this little eBook of all my posts and writings tucked away safe. I mean who knows anything could happen. My blog could get deleted or God forbid the internet could disintegrate.

Their website has several options for soft and hardback books for a little more. You can upload pictures to put on the covers and select which posts to keep.

Check it out, Blog2Print works for WordPress, Blogspot, Tumblr and Typepad. Let me know what you think.

Walking after Midnight

Walking after Midnight

Clouds filled the sky, hiding the moon as a dense fog lifted from the forest floor.

My heart filled with relief as tiny flickering lights appeared illuminating the narrow path.

They twirled and danced, leading me to an archway formed by low hanging limbs an archway I hoped was an exit from the forest.

One by one, with a final wink the lights passed through the archway.

I groped like a child waking in the night, as I stood once more blind and lost in the darkness wishing for faeries.
