Setting up your Blogger blog for emailing posts


So you want to email posts to your blog?

To do this, you need to set up a "secret" email address within your blog's settings.


Get to your blog. Here's mine:

...and click on the Design link, highlighted

Next you'll see this:
Click the highlighted Settings link - the one with a spanner - "wrench" for my USA visitors - next to it.

Do this and you'll see the Settings sub-menu:
Click the one highlighted, labelled Mobile and email

..and you're at the place where you decide on your secret email address:
Put in the secret word in the white box and click the Save settings button (in orange, top right). You might like to adjust the default Publish email immediately to Save emails as draft post.

Now try it out

Prepare a quick email and send it to the secret email address and have a quick look at your blog (you may need to refresh the page) and you should see your new post.

comments, likes, +1s, tweets are always welcome! :)
