Setting up a WordPress with Mac Journal

As soon as I bought Mac Journal I wanted to figure out how to do this. I could not find enough documentation on the Mariner Software site to do this so I figured I would help people out by making this tutorial.
If there is anything unclear pleas contact me by leaving a comment on my blog.

Word Press Set Up

  1. Log in to your word press blog
  2. Scroll down to the Menu: Settings – Writing
  3. Click: Enable the Atom Publishing Protocol.
  4. Click: Enable the WordPress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC publishing protocols.

MacJournal

MJicon.lPlsVtVPVRQR1.jpg
I am a sucker for a good deal. I am also a sucker for something that is a good deal and improves my life. I have been looking for a way to chronicle my thoughts on and offline. Because I participated in the Mac Heist earlier this year and got MarinerSoftwares Paperless I go and additional deal on MacJournal. Online I have used WordPress, Drupal. Offline I have use Word, Pages, TextEdit, Stickies and Text mate. I loose the motivation to write easily dealing with online software though I will spend allot of time figuring them out. Offline I love how useful and easy to use Pages and Word can be but it looses its charm in the cut and paste to the blog or website. Enter Mac Journal! Out of the box I started to write my ideas even before I figured out how to put them online. Dragging and dropping images was just as easy as word or pages. I also love the fact that I can have multiple journals and have a different set up for each, in one easy to use window.

After I got over the initial charm of a really focused software package I started to want to use it for what I bought it for, Blogging. This is where the learning curve got really steep and I found the limitations of the documentation and information. To be clear this software is capable of uploading its content to WordPress, Drupal, Blogger, BlogSpot or any where that uses the Atom, MoveableType, Live Journal or MetaWebLog Protocols but is not an easy endeavor to say the least. Of course I started with the hardest of them all posting to my drupal blog and I got it to work: Drupal MacJournal Tutorial. I don’t like how MacJournal sets up and edits servers because there is there really no intuitive way to edit the list. They should take a note from Coda, Dreamweaver or Transmit on easy of use as MJ uses terms hard for web people to decipher what they mean. Over all I like MJ and would will offer some online training for it soon as there is a lack of know how on the blogging portion of it
