A month ago, I paid my second annual Zapier subscription fee. I've been using this platform for more than a year now, and it baffles me how little writers use it to save their precious time.
I'm using Zapier for lots of things: creating accounts for my ConvertKit email subscribers on my Ghost blog, automatically create Medium Drafts for my published pieces on Ghost with the canonical URL already set to the original post, etc.
You might think - why bother automate things that take a minute? But if you count those minutes that you spend on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and so on, it becomes hours. Hours that you can shave off to focus only on writing and publishing on your blog and let technology handle the rest. That's Zapier's mission.
You don't need to pay to get started with Zapier. Once it starts saving you time on all the little things you do anyway, you'll want more.
But for today, let's begin with the basics.
