Email post via Mail Chimp

The Mail Chimp posting worked. It does not have the best formatting but works. Wondering now if I should make another blog and get it set up and then forward all my past technology tips to that blog email post address. May be a lot of work but could make for a good record of information.

The email post to Evernote worked too. Except with the basic Evernote account you can only send five mails. This was not apparent on the Evernote site when setting up the email service but they sent an email this morning letting me know it is a trail basis.

If you are interested in Evernote and signing up for the service I can get a month of premium service for referrals.
Go to: https://www.evernote.com/referral/Registration.action?sig=83162d9ba3038b35790c3c014c557aeb&uid=4094042
to sign up and install Evernote. New users will also get a month of premium service too.

Twitter Guide
A Resource

Hello Sequoyah, 

The Mashable website has a great guide to using Twitter. It is an older article updated about two years ago. Yes, two years is a huge long time in online years. So many things can change in a short amount of time. 

I think the key to Twitter is simply using it. Get on. Look around. Have it going in the background throughout the day. It is like the news ticker at the bottom of the screen. If you see something of interest click on it. If you see someone tweet something you like follow them. Retweet it if it is something awesome.

Take a look at the Mashable article if you are having trouble getting started or are wondering what to do next.

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 
Andy

Auto Post

I try to create a daily technology tip. I have been doing it for a couple of years now using MailChimp to mail my teachers tips and tricks. It is really nifty. There is an archive of posts through MailChimp. I have been thinking I really want to have my posts on the Internet too.
Racking my brain... Copy and Paste? ReDo? seems like a lot of work.
Then I remembered yesterday I was looking at EverNote settings. They have a email to post feature. So does Blogger. In theory add the posting email address to the MailChimp list. Then the MailChimp email should post automatically to the BlogSpot and to Evernote.
We shall see in the next couple of days...

There is really something awesome about changing your mind, deciding to be who you want and how you want.

Ricky Bobby

Not sure if that is right. "If you are not first,  you are last.". It should be "if you are not first, you are not first".
I think it is often best to be last. But then I have never been one to be first.

Guide

Odd paradox thought about this morning. We look toward others as guiding light. People who have forged the way and are a guide of sorts. Selfbhelp gurus and made it millionaires. And yet we know the each persons path is their own . Each must find their own path. And the road less traveled like that. If I knew the way I would take you there.
