Automatically processing blog posts

I go through a lot of blog posts everyday, because I want to find inspiration for the blog, but also just because I like to learn and acquire new knowledge.

When I find an article on the web, that I like, I save it to Pockect, and then a lot of stuff happens – automatically!

I, of course, use feedly to go through all of the blogs that I follow. I really don’t feel like there is any other RSS-reader, that can compete with it.

In feedly, you find a button, that makes it possible to save articles to Pocket with just one click.

So I go through my feed with a very skeptical eye, delete a lot of stuff and only save the best articles.

When an article is saved to pocket, all of my automatic processes is started via IFTTT.

When I save an article to Pocket:

  • It gets shared on Facebook
  • It gets shared on Twitter
  • It gets send with email to my Soundgecko Account (So I can listen to it later, instead of reading it)
  • It gets saved on my public list in Delicious (So a Fancy Hands Assistant later on can see a complete list of this weeks shared links, and put them in my newsletter)
  • It gets saved in Evernote (So I always can go back, and find and search in the information that I have learned, if I want to bring it up again)

All of this happens, just with a single click on the Pocket icon in feedly, and I am probably going to add more processes to this along the line.

You can add a lot of other processes to this, and you can also use Zapier instead of IFTTT for more complex automations.

Try it out for yourself, and thanks for reading guys!

  1. Thanks for the article Max. I am looking for a solution to automatically save to pocket articles from a WordPress blog I like, at the time they are published.

    The RSS feed won’t work since it contains only the teasers and not the full blog articles. I also tried using IFTTT, gmail to Pocket but I couldn’t find any receipe to properly work.

    I would like to read this blog articles on my Kobo e-reader since it works with pocket and it’s easy on eyes. Do you know a solution?

    Thanks, Vic

    1. Hi Vic!
      Have you tried using feedly as a trigger?
      I have had some luck making a category trigger in feedly to set up other aotumations – and it will sometimes solve problems similar to yours. Cheers!
