Getting RSS from @Evernote via @Postachio Blog
Even more amazing is that you can handle formatted text, as well as Markdown text!
Postach.io creates blog posts and pages from your notes in Evernote. One simply creates a note in a Notebook they've specified when creating a site. Postach.io then converts those notes to published posts and pages.The process to get things going is pretty straightforward...just go to Postach.io web site:
In the screenshot below, you can see my Postach.io notebook, 2Blog, has two entries that are tagged with "published" and as such will appear on the http://mguhlin.postach.io Around the Corner Blog.
The implications for this are...well, imagine if you have students turning work in (which is pretty necessary when you're working with an app like BookCreator with ePub formatted output files or anything).
You simply email it to the Evernote account, add the @NotebookName, then you (or you can let your students do it, although that's up to you depending on your students) tag it as #published
This is also great for sharing notes from meetings, conferences, etc. They are instantly posted...and since Postach.io has an RSS feed, there's more magic possible!
What is even neater is that you can grab the RSS feed from your Postach.io blog and run it through IFTTT.com...and, IFTTT.com can pretty much send an RSS feed anywhere!
Take that RSS Feed from your Postach.io blog and...
Quick Tip: Be sure to remove the URL from Evernote (you can paste it in the body of the Note if you need it to appear), otherwise Postach.io will simply post a link to the original item. That might not work so well if you want your Note to reflect your comments.
For example, here's an Evernote Note that will be auto-posted to this blog:
Click on the Info link to remove the URL that appears:
Evernote may be back on my Christmas list! Thanks, Postach.io!
