iPhone Blogging


I wanted to create a process to be able to blog shorter or linked posts from my iPhone. The great thing about Blot.im is that all you need to do to post a new blog post is drop a .md file into a folder.

So after setting up Alvalog, my new personal blog, on Blot.im all I needed to do was setup a process to write and drop the files into the Dropbox folder that Blot.im is connected too.

I created a Shortcut called Post To Alvalog and decided to just you Apple Notes to write and then run the shortcut from when I was ready to post. I could probably use another app that natively supports markdown, but it was easy enough to just convert the text file to markdown in Shortcuts.


The process is super simple and now I can post on my blog easily from my iPhone. I can add links, photos, and markdown formatted text and everything just works!

The future is awesome!
