I’ve greatly improved my process for creating social media content in a centralized place. The basic workflow is this: Then my VA goes in and reviews the documents, creating images…
I’m a huge fan of Airtable; it’s the very basis of my podcast planners. But up until now, I haven’t been using it to its full potential. I do some…
This year I decided to switch Zapier from yearly to monthly and learned they charge an obnoxious 33% more because of it. Combine that with a recent episode of the Automators podcast that covers Make, and I’ve decided to try switching completely to Make from Zapier.
One of my goals has always been to figure out a straight-forward way to connect Zapier and Shortcuts.
One of those ways is Pushcut, via a local automations server it runs constantly on a device. But until today I didn’t have a spare device…so now I’m testing the server.
How many typos do you make when you’re writing? How many times do you need to retype emails you’ve already written? Or find URLs, emails, and other information you wish you had readily available? You need a tool to help you manage all of this and save you time. That’s where TextExpander comes in.
Back in the summer of 2018, I talked about how I was going to dedicate more time to automation. Since then, I’ve automated significant parts of my business, including guest outreach and booking, project creation, and even workspace configuration.
Now that Shortcuts has reasonably good Mac support, and I have an Apple Silicon Mac, I’m re-evaluating my automation strategy and exploring what more I can do with these tools.
I do a lot of searching directly from the address bar in whatever browser I happen to be in (usually Safari), so anything to make that process faster would be super swell. A while back, I learned about the Safari Keyword Search Extension from Six Colors, and decided to give it a try. It is incredible! But what if you don’t use Safari?
threads, podcast episodes, and blog posts have all made their way into a new space I created explicitly for writing. Now I’m wondering if I should switch from my long-standing, beloved writing app.
Do you suffer from too many emails? Have a 4 digit badge on your mail app? Constantly buried in a deluge of unread email? If you’re anything like me, just that sentence stressed me out. That’s why I have a process in place.
I recently updated my post about how I’m automating my business, using tools like Shortcuts, Zapier, Keyboard Maestro, and Hazel. Check it out!
