Blogging on the go (via Email!)

Did you know you can blog on the go via eMail (assuming you have an email program on your phone and internet acces and all that)?

It's really useful when you just want to post an update and you can even attach pictures if you want! How convenient, eh?

And you can set it so that they are only saved as drafts - very useful if you have ideas for blogposts!

YouTube Subscription Box

Lots of people recently asked me where I got the little YouTube subscription box from that I have here in my blog on the right in the sidebar. You can see how many subscribers I have, etc.

I actually found this by accident on YouTube's website as it is an official widget of theirs. But for some reason they seem to have kept it quiet. And I can't actually find where it is on YouTube's website, but someone has already written a tutorial on how to get that cute box.... The good thing is that it also tells you how to do this in Wordpress - another blogging platform (with which I unfortunately can't help)

Unfortunately they have written it in tech language, which I want to avoid here.

So here's the tutorial of how to do it on Blogger (there is also a WordPress version, but I have no clue of WordPress as I've never worked with it)

Blogger to Twitter & Facebook - Solution 1

Recently I've been helping out loads of different lovely twitterers with their various blog issues, and I've now been encouraged to share stuff on here. I hope for those who aren't interested, it's not the biggest deal that I still share? There's a million and two things I could explain, but for this series I'm assuming you already have a blog.

Do you find yourself constantly sharing your blogpost to twitter or posting the link on your facebook page or profile? It gets very manual, eh? When I started my blog I really wanted as many people to know about my blog posts, so I consta)ntly, manually 'shared' it. But I thought to myself that there must be a solution to automate this entire procedure! AND I FOUND 2 SOLUTIONS! YAY! And I actually use both for doubling 'exposure' LOL.
