How much is your time worth?
For you who have a blog, a big part of your day is dedicated to writing, publish and produce content. You know more than anyone how much work it takes to get to the final revision of your story and to push the publish button. Your time is priceless; you decided to use it for writing, and we deeply respect you for that.
You are the reason why we created Blogo and why we keep improving it, always finding ways to reduce distractions, save time, make the process more efficient and automated, so you can focus on what matters most: write and publish your next story.
We’re giving one more step in that direction. Almost 20% of the content production time is spent looking for content. This is the average time our users take to browse, edit and add images, gifs and videos in posts containing media.
Introducing Media Search
Today we are launching Media Search – on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. It is the fastest way to find amazing videos, images, GIFs, and music from Youtube, Vimeo, Giphy, 500px, Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud and more. Search, find and add them magically on your post.
How much time would you need to search and add an image, a gif and a video about Aurora Borealis to a blog post? Now see how fast it is with Blogo:
The Magnifying Glass
To access the Media Search on the iPhone and the iPad just click the Add Media icon (•••) located in the side menu and look for the magnifying glass. On the Mac, you will find the magnifying glass directly in the sidebar. Click it to open the Media Search.
There is no secret here. Type what you are looking for and the results will appear. Navigate between the tabs Images, Videos, GIFs and Music to change the type of media you are looking for and when you want to add the media in your post click on the (+).
In this example, we will honor our wonderful city, host of 2016 Olympic Games, Rio de Janeiro. Check out how it looks on the Mac and the iPhone:
Preview it before you add it
It’s easy to choose the right image just by looking it’s thumbnail sometimes, but what about GIFs, videos, and music? You need to preview and play it to make sure the content will fit your needs. Yes, we thought about that too ;)
To preview it on the Mac select the media and press space bar, the same way you preview files when using Finder. You can also right-click on the thumbnail and choose “Preview” along with other options like “Copy link” and “view on browser” for example.
On the iOS side simply touch and hold the media and the actions menu will pop up, as you can see here:
What kind of content can I found on it?
For now, you will be able to search for images, videos, gifs, music, and podcasts from 500px, Pexels, Unsplash, Pixabay, YouTube, Vimeo, Giphy, Apple Music, Spotify, and Soundcloud. We plan to add other types of content in the future such as Wikipedia articles and App Store apps.
