    Blog from Org mode to WordPress.

    Org2Blog: Write in org-mode and upload to WordPress, this extension has gotten a recent update. One of the big benefits of this is that you can write in an org-subtree (reminds me sorta scrivener binder) which gives you a broader perspective on your blog, easy navigating, and easy to make multi-part posts. It is one of the only blogging tools that I know that does this. It also provides a menu which is very helpful. cost: $0 (if you host on features: you get all the benefits of WordPress

    Post blog article of org-mode to Blogger from Emacs (by yuutayamada)

    Yep, same experience I had. There is a help bubble on there somewhere for external applications that says it will need to be reviewed which takes 4-6 weeks and up to $15K!! I was ignoring that hoping I could get something to work first at least as a proof of concept then maybe create register for workspaces, switch to internal, add testers... and then I realized how much effort that was and just quit. It wasn't worth it to me to pursue. I did find this project: but I didn't test it because it looked like it was using an external tool (googlecl) and I was trying to avoid using external tools if I could. Using an external tool means my configuration is less portable since I would need the same tools an any computer I decided to buy in the future or if I were borrowing one, or something. A minor thing really, I suppose. It doesn't help that I haven't found recent information on googlecl, the pypy page looks like it was updated a decade ago for example.
