As part of the site revamp, I wanted a place where I could put “narrating my work” type posts that were outside of the main site flow – the nature of these are that they are often quick and partial, and I find having them in the main flow inhibits my writing.
The obvious place to start, was with a Custom Post Type, but unfortunately most of the things I use to write to this site (Word and the WordPress iOS app) don’t support CPTs.
A bit of digging, and I think I may have a workflow – certainly something I’m willing to try for a while:
- writing in Fargo – Dave Winer‘s nifty in-browser outliner
- import of posts via RSS using FeedWordpress, posting as a custom post type (I love that you can choose a different CPT per feed if you wish)
- a simplified theme design for the Working Aloud area of the site
Now I just need to use it….
