There are many differente Frontends that you can use to blog on HIVE. I have mainly been using PeakD and have learned a couple of things since I first started using PeakD. That said, most concepts are also included in other frontends.
Templates is something that you are going to want to use!
It actually took me a really long time before I actually found out this was an option. I used to copy and paste my posts and then remove the unnecessary part... So inefficient.
With templates, you can also do more than only have a basic starter template, you can also include your default short preview description and more importantly, your tags.
See, for (almost) every splinterlands post, I use the same tags. It used to take me a while before I entered all these tags in time after time. Now, I just select my splinterlands template and everything is done for me.
Next up: snippets!
It's similar to templates, but meant for parts of your blogs instead of entire templates, like an affiliate link or something.
Also, you can see from the image that I discovered snippets before templates, there is no need to have a snippet SL tags, because that would be included in your template.
3. Drafts & post scheduling
This month I am trying to post something every single day of the month. I can tell you, these features are a life saver.
Basically, you can create as many drafts as you want and you can publish them manually or at a scheduled time.
So, how do you use these features?
- Click on your profile on the top right
- click on "tools"
- click "drafts", "templates" or scheduled posts in the left side navigation.
For snippets search for this icon:
On the top right of your text editor.
