Reclaiming Some of your Precious Time

I create a lot of images and videos for the articles on VitaminCM.com. I also am active on a number of Social Media sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, etc. When I publish a new article it can take a very long time to upload videos to YouTube, 5min.com, Vimeo, and the rest. It also takes a while to update my status on Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, and FriendFeed. Thankfully, I discovered a way to save a ton of time that I used to spend doing all of these separate tasks.

PixelPipe.com is a free service that allows you to publish photos, videos, audio, files, and status updates to over 100 places at once in just a few seconds. What type of places you ask? How about Flickr, Picasa, Snapfish, Photobucket, and TwitPic for images? You have videos? Try YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, Blip.tv, and 12sec. Want to update your status on one of these: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, FriendFeed, or FourSquare. Do you have a document or note to upload? Try Google Docs, Acrobat.com, Box.net, Drop.io, Evernote, or SlideShare. Did you want to publish a blog post to multiple places? Try Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, and Drupal. These are only a few of the numerous choices in each category. If you’re using a service, it’s there. Trust me.
