I posted about this previously, I just wanted to update my methods. Not much has changed except that now you can have unlimited posts per day, although, I recommend keeping the number down so you don't flood your readers.
I've been using this method for at least 10 months. It allows me to review my drafts and even make tweaks while away from my desktop.
It's still a good idea to make sure your article is exactly what you want before posting it, even though the blockchain is very efficient at handling edits. One way to do this is to draft your posts on another platform, until we can save drafts directly on steemit.com.
My favorite solution is to use GitHub. The great thing about this solution is that your drafts become available for edit wherever you have access to GitHub, including on mobile devices. Certain mobile apps will even allow you to merge changes to your drafts.
First, sign up for an account on github.com. Free accounts can have unlimited public repositories. There's a $7/month charge for unlimited private repositories.
Either plan will work. If you make enough on steemit.com to justify the $7/month, you can upgrade at any time. May as well use a public repository for drafts until then.
Created a new repository.
Name the repository.
I use the
git shell command to
push from my desktop as well as
pull changes I've made while on my mobile device.
Navigate to your new repository and click the Clone or Download button and copy the url, e.g.:
On the desktop shell (use your url instead):
$ git clone [email protected]:inertia186/steemit.git
Atom is a great editor!
Atom also has several
git plugins. Although I use the shell for everything involving
git changes, I still use the
git plugins to see what's going in atom.
If you are uncomfortable dealing with the shell to manage
git, and you're on macOS, I recommend SourceTree by Atlassian.
