Update your site or blog with ScribeFire

Another reason to use Firefox as your web browser: The extension ScribeFire make it easy to add posts to blogs while web browsing. No need to open a separate window or tab and flip back and forth; the editor pops up in a lower panel in your browser window and offers a nice set of tools for creating posts with links, images, everything you need. If you use a blog as your business website, this also means you can use ScribeFire to post content to your site like recent press. It’s fast and fluid.

ScribeFire is an extension for the Mozilla Firefox Web browser that integrates with your browser to let you easily post to your blog: you can drag and drop formatted text from pages you are browsing, take notes, and post to your blog.

Details and links to download are at the ScribeFire website. If you don’t have Firefox yet, get it at the Mozilla website. There are so many extensions to Firefox that I feel I have no chance of keeping up. The main way I find out about useful tools is through recommendations. ScribeFire was no exception: I heard about it from Brad King at the Digital Democracy SPJ conference a couple of weekends back.
