I love wordpress, easy to use, hassle free and a good SEO. I always been promoting wordpress to my friends and even business partners.
Than instagram arrives and I would love to post my photos straight to my WordPress blog but it was not possible (not totally impossible I could always do an email post)
So I started a tumblr blog to build up my personal collections of instagram photos. Now this is the part where it gets a bit complicated. The more instagram photos I took the more interaction I have with tumblr. It’s fun, I love the reblogging feature and many sites that writes about startup have a blog on tumblr too. So at one point in time, I actually though of shifting my blog over to tumblr .
Now a solution has arrived. In come IFTTT (If This Than That) – a startup that helps make internet work better for us.
I can set up the following instructions.
if there is a instagram post than post it to wordpress.
With this feature I can chose to leave my tumblr blog and have all my instagram photos on my wordpress blog. You can even select tags, for example. If the instagram photo is tag #startup than it will be posted onto the wordpress site. There are many combinations that you can make the internet better for you
I strongly recommend IFTTT for anyone finding ways to manage their social networks or finding ways to make internet better for themselves.
Thank you Linden Tibbets (Founder IFTTT) for solving my problem.
I like taking pictures of my food and share it online with my friends. I know there is a particular niche app for this on iphone – foodspotting but I didn’t bother to try it. Well because most of my friends are using instagram and besides pictures taken with instagram looks great too. But most importantly because my friends are on it, I am able to received comments, sometimes from there photos it helps me to find good bites too. (Finding and getting to good food is I believe a hobby among Singaporeans)
However, today I discover that Evernote has a new product offering. It is call Evernote Food. So I decided to give it a try. STOP! “You must be wondering are most of my friends using Evernote Food too?” The answer is no, but because I am a fan of Evernote itself so I gave it a try.
Preserve and relive memorable food experiences. From fine dining to family gatherings to a local food truck, remember every delicious moment.
I am sad to say this but the Evernote food did not meet my expectation. Maybe I was expecting a little bit more from Evernote.
Evernote Food allows me to key in details on Title, Place, Tags and Meal Notes
The dashboard works just like a dairy
Especially love the part where Evernote Food syncs with Evernote, It looks neat and beautiful
- The part that Evernote Food works together with Evernote, because the picture of the food is display in a beautiful format like a notebook.
- Evernote Food hang when I tried to share it over facebook
- Evernote Food was not able to determine my GPS location – (I am guessing maybe Evernote Food cannot work outside US yet or my iphone GPS system is spoilt)
Since I am on the topic of food, I like to share about another rising Singapore startup in this space – Burpple.com. Burpple.com is the brainchild of Elisha and Dixon. It is a Social Mobile Food Diary that allow users to save, share and discover food moments. They are still in the beta stage and I did not manage to get an invite yet (it’s HOT). But Dixon did show me the app interface before. “I not saying this to get an invite but the interface sure look stunningly beautiful” I have no comment of the app experience yet.
Anyhow, I guess for the time begin it’s back to instagram. So what about you? Do you like taking pictures of your food and share it with your friends? if Yes, what app do you use? Instagram? Foodspotting? or Others?
p/s I do know Elisha and Dixon, we sit just opposite each other when we were hot-desking at Blk71.
