More and more I’m finding videos are easier to make and understand than a long text tutorial. In the video above, I describe my quest for a sensible, function, and free way to automatically republish posts from an RSS feed to a Tumblr blog. I try out IFTTT but end up using dlvr.it because it makes the most of the Tumblr “Link” format.

Meditation takes time and effort, but the benefits are enormous. Anyone who manages to maintain a daily sitting practice is likely to sing its praises, the hard part is making the time and finding the motivation to keep at it day after day.
