Testing image upload with IFTTT blot.im blog post

I am trying to upload an image along with the blog post. It should show up as a publicly available url.


Testing blot.im blog posting with IFTTT

I like writing blog posts. I am however in search of a nice and easy editor to do it. Since blot.im does not have one, I ended up using gmail email as my editor.

My subject is the title for the posts and the date at which I send the email is the publish date. The content of the email is the blog post body.

All of this is enabled through IFTTT.

Listening to Rumi is when your body paralyses and your senses try to capture the divine expression of your soul.

Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded.

Someone sober would worry about things going badly.

Let the lover be. - Rumi

The point being: Looking closely is valuable at every scale. From looking closely at a sentence, a photograph, a building, a government. It scales and it cascades — one cognizant detail begets another and then another. Suddenly you’ve traveled very far from that first little: Huh.

I’d say that that huh is the foundational block of curiosity. To get good at the huh is to get good at both paying attention and nurturing compassion; if you don’t notice, you can’t give a shit. But the huh is only half the equation. You gotta go huh, alright — the alright,” the follow-up, the openness to what comes next is where the cascade lives. It’s the sometimes-sardonic, sometimes-optimistic engine driving the next huh and so on and so forth.
