Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 


As some of you may know I typically post on my blog twice a week. Mondays show my Project 52 submission and Thursdays usually have something else. This week has been a little crazy. My dad was just recently diagnosed with cancer, and things seem be accelerating along. So today is a "me" day. There are no doctors appointments, papers to fill out, or errands to run.

I recently wiped my Mac to clear out the junk and am trying to make sense of what it is I want to do with the social networks, the blog, etc. So I want to see if I can post and publish from one network and have it branch out to the other ones. Not a teaser post, but the full contents of this post finding itself on my blog (with some editing) then finding itself on my Facebook, then a blurb out on Twitter. So far this is what I've found:

If you use Blogger's submit by email put that email in a circle in G+ you're post will find it's way to Blogger. I'd suggest putting the posts as drafts otherwise you'll publicize your super secret Blogger email. Edit out the bits you don't want/need, and in the case of this post swap the photo link out so you can show the photo larger. This takes care of G+ --> Blogger.

Then, using Twitterfeed, the RSS feed of the blog feeds Facebook and Twitter. To be honest though I'm not crazy about Twitterfeed. The results are pretty hit or miss. So with this posting I'm using a Chrome app called Streamify to post directly from G+ to FB (and I suppose Twitter to, but that will be a weird looking tweet) to compare the two. 

So, finally, to the photo. A simple, fairly rusty, footbridge. A 5 shot HDR, which I don't think is too overdone.

Update: the posting from G+ to Blogger didn't work right. It gave me a truncated version not suitable for posting on here.
