How to Quickly Update a Wordpress Blog via Satellite Email

Keeping your friends, family and followers updated on your latest adventures is now possible from even the most remote locations!


Updating your Wordpress blog is easily done via email, and with XGate’s state-of-the-art compression service, you will only use 5% of the data of a standard email service. That means saving upload time AND money.


How to update your Wordpress blog via email


1. Generate Wordpress email address


Firstly, you will need to generate a unique email adress that corresponds to your Wordpress blog. (Do not share this email adress with anyone or they will be able to post to your blog!)

In the Manage Blog section of Wordpress, click Enable Post by Email. This will generate the email address you will send your blog post content to.


2. Subject line as post title


Write the title of your blog post in the email subject line.


3. Body of email as your post


Write the main content of your blog post in the body of the email. You can jump straight into writing and it will show up as paragraph text.


4. Add images


Include images within the body of your email and they will show up in-line on your blog post. If you post multiple images directly next to, or directly under each other (with no line of text in between) they will show up as an image carousel.


5. Shortcodes


There are many other shortcodes that can be included in the body of your email. For example, delaying your posting time or geotagging. A list of shortcodes can be found here.

If the in-built Wordpress email feature isn’t for you, then a SailBlogs account will allow you to update your offshore blog with the touch of one button. You can also provide location tagging through Google Earth for your family, friends and readers to follow along on your journey.
