My blogging workflow generally involves:
- Posting a blog article with MarsEdit
- Reviewing the article in Safari
- Tweeting the article in Twitter
Step 3 required copying and pasting both the URL and the article title, separated by an em-dash, into the twitter client. I simplified this with the following Keyboard Maestro macro, which, in addition to forming the correct tweet text, also strips out the blog name from the title—for each of my two blogs Dafacto and Rantbox.
