New! Add Surveying Stories and Blogs Using Scribefire

Share Your Surveying Stories from the Field in a New Way!

Actually, i should have said that you can now add blog posts (aka Stories) to Land Surveyors United using several compatible 3rd party apps and browser add-ons, when off of the network.  First, I will show you a few apps that will work and then I will explain how to set up Scribefire inside your browser so that you can publish storiesto the network with ease.

We're extremely excited to announce our support for the MetaWeblog API  for Land Surveyors United Network. This new enhancement will allow members of LSU to compose and edit blog posts using popular 3rd-party applications.

How to Set Up Scribefire for Google Chrome


Much of the process I am going to show you will be similar on any of the third party apps listed above, as long as it supports the Metaweblog API.

Configure Scribefire

Getting started is easy. When the application prompts you to set up your blog, simply enter your blog's name (you can enter whatever you'd like) and the following for the URL: http://landsurveyorsunited.com/profiles/blog/list. Once prompted, log in with your e-mail address and password for that network. That's it! In fact you can now enjoy using Scribefire to post blog posts to any type of blogging platform that you choose, such as wordpress, blogger,tumblr, ect.
