The WiFi at my new place became so slow, that I'm now staying in an AirBnB for a few days whilst better internet gets set up.
It's great! I can see and hear the sea from my new tiny desk.
This weekend I automated away PromptBase's social media posts.
Each day, I still post a single collage of a prompt featured on the site.
However - increasingly, I was finding that I'd get to the end of a day, about to go to sleep, then, realising I forgot to post anything, have to spend 10 tired minutes making a post.
Now, at 8 pm each day, my robot social media consultant posts to Instagram and Twitter for me. I just flag prompts that I want it to post. Way easier!
It even uses AI to choose an appropriate emoji for the post!
I'm pretty stingy, so I did this through the official APIs instead of paying for a scheduling tool - but, I can see why they exist now.
The Facebook/Instagram API in particular is one of the most confusing APIs to set up that I've ever tried.
