Now you have to setup the folder to use the folder action:
What this does is set up a folder watcher for the post folder. Anytime a file is added it will execute the script that was created using Automator.
What does my workflow look like now? Unfortunately this workflow requires me to have Jekyll running on one of my systems at all times. I am OK with this since I have chosen not to use GitHub for my deployment. Also, I am unable to install incron on my server to have a fully automated publishing solution. Lucky for me, my iMac is almost always running anyway.
This new, automated workflow allows me now to write posts on my iOS devices. No, it is far from perfect, but the barrier to write has just been lowered significantly.
So how do I want to improve my workflow?
In a few months I will provide an update on how things are going. Just in the last few days I have already increased my post count, but we all know how new-and-shiny-objects get a lot of attention at first. I do have another workflow improvement, but I will save that for another post.
Feel free to share your feedback. Like my photography workflow, I am always trying to improve my blogging efficiency.
