Bookmarklets are amazing, still

I don’t remember the first bookmarklet that I’ve used, but as far as I can tell, I’ve never stopped using them.

One of the nicest things of WordPress on iOS is that I can use 3D touch to write a post instantly.

Yet, somehow, I’ve been using a typical bookmark on my computer. So I’d click on the bookmark, which would open my WordPress instance, then I’d click on Add New Post.

Even if I had the Add New Post page bookmarked, it would be “somewhere” on my screen.

But with a bookmarklet, I can make it a popup, which usually would center, and there would be no distractions as well. Just content.

I’ve been running my own instance of Lobsters for a while (at and one of the niceties is Lobsters’ bookmarklet to submit links.

I realized that I should use a bookmarklet for writing posts as well.

So here it goes.

javascript:{"", "NewPost", "popup");void(0)}

And just like that, I can write a new post instantly, as I did right now 🙂

Technically, the first argument can be any URL that you wanna have front and center. Hope this helps you to write/blog/tweet more.

That’s all folks…
