Send your blog post by email

Some of you might find it easier to send posts by email. You can even attach files and images to your email and they will come up in the blog!

The directions on how to do this can be found at the link below.

This site has detailed instructions with screenshots.  Essentially there are two steps: (1) Generate a special email address and (2) send and email.

To generate a special email address for the blog, do this:

  1. Dashboard > My Blogs.
  2. Find the ICBG blog and click the Enable button (it should be the only one in the list)
  3. Make a note of the email address (you can download a vcard to import into your address book)

Any formatting, attachments or links you put in your email should appear on the blog.  You can always edit your post if you want to change the appearance or wording.
