Micro.blog is a versatile blogging platform that allows you to share posts, photos, videos, and more with the community. Best of all, you can publish directly from Ulysses to Micro.blog.
Add Your Micro.blog Account to Ulysses
First, let’s connect Ulysses with Micro.blog. To integrate your account, you need to get an App Token from the Settings page of your Micro.blog account. Once you‘ve got the token, please proceed as follows:
On Mac, open Ulysses’ Preferences, switch to the Accounts tab and click the + icon at the bottom left.
There, select Micro.blog, paste the App Token into the text field and click “Log In”.
Now, select your preferred style, and you’re done.
On iPhone and iPad, tap the editor menu icon (circled ellipsis), choose Export (1) and switch to Publishing. Now, tap the “Add Account” icon top right (2), select Micro.blog (3), enter the App Token (4) and select “Sign In”.
Your account will sync between all your devices, so you only have to do this once.
Write Your Blog Post
- The first heading in your text will become the title of your post.
- Keywords attached to your sheet will turn into categories if they match categories that are already available on your blog. (Please set new categories in your Micro.blog backend first.)
Publish to Micro.blog
Once you’ve completed a blog post, it’s time to share it with the world.
On Mac, click the Export button or hit the shortcut ⇧⌘P (shift-command-P) and switch the export format to Publishing. Now, select your Micro.blog from the available accounts.
In the Export Preview, click “Publish…” on the top right to review and edit your post’s title and categories. You can also schedule your post from here. If you’re confident with your settings, click Publish.
Published blog posts can be easily identified in the sheet list, as the sheets are marked with a paper plane icon.
On iPhone or iPad, open the editor menu and select Export (1). Then, tap the export format at the top, select Publishing and choose your Micro.blog account (2). Now, tap the paper plane icon top right, review your post’s settings and select Publish (3).
And that’s it! You successfully published, drafted or scheduled your blog post.
