Capture Blog Ideas from Pocket to WordPress

The trigger for this is Pocket (you can also use Instapaper or any other Read Later service it supports), and you are going to link it to WordPress. If you haven’t previously activated these services you will need to login to both via IFTTT to set them up and grant permissions. In the Applet, you will want to designate a tag in Pocket to send posts to WordPress. Give it a tag of “blog” or “blog ideas”, or whatever is easiest and then add WordPress to the Applet and tell it to create a new post (this will be your only post option at this point). You will need to make sure you edit the Applet once established – you want it to be a draft, otherwise you’re just publishing a post with the name and snippet of the article. Click on the completed Applet in your list and then EDIT. Scroll down and there will be a “Post Status” box. Click on this and change to “Save As Draft”.
