Schedule Photos to Post Automatically with Postbot

The WordPress.com Blog

We’re big fans of photography here at WordPress.com, and we know that a lot of you are, too. Sometimes we’ll take a bunch of photos and want to post them, one at a time, spread over several days. Doing this manually is time-consuming and, let’s be honest, a little boring.

To help this situation we created Postbot, a photo scheduling app that allows you to quickly upload and schedule multiple photos.

postbot-blog

Postbot will create a post for each photo and schedule it to appear at a certain time over a given number of days. This is the ideal way to share a lot of photos without having to manually create and schedule each one.

Postbot is a stand-alone application that works with your WordPress.com blog, and your Jetpack-powered WordPress.org blog. You can use it from your desktop or mobile browser.

How to use Postbot

Conservation paleoecologist Jacquelyn Gill is interested in how landscapes change through space and time. You might recognize her blog, The Contemplative Mammoth, from reading her recent piece on “just-so stories”  — the entertaining (yet factually inaccurate) tales that people tell to explain the natural world. We enjoy Jacquelyn’s thoughtful narratives and discussions on a variety of topics, from the timescales of climate change to failed plant sex. Her writing is intelligent and accessible — a great mix to keep readers engaged.

On Milkwood, a family in Mudgee, a town in New South Wales, Australia, chronicles life on a farm and shares homesteading resources for both urban and rural living. You’ll read about best practices on everything from natural beekeeping to permaculture design to vegetable gardening.

Recommended Reading: Bird By Bird

The Daily Post

I referenced Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions in Writing and Life in last week’s “Five Posts to Write Right Now,” and we’ve used her in Blogging 101 assignments as well. Personally, I turn to this book again and again — when I’m staring down a blank screen and a deadline or feeling just not good enough, flipping to any page usually restores my perspective and helps unclog my thorniest word-jam.

The story of the book’s title sums it up perfectly:

Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he’d had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds…
