Free Email Contact Forms for your Blog

Email Me Form is a free online form generator service that helps you create HTML forms for your website, with no programming required.

Within minutes, by using our easy to use form wizard you can design simple or complex forms that send you an email each time your visitors submit them. After creating the web form, you get a HTML code to paste in your website, and the form will be there and working!

  1. No Programming required! You select a form template, specify how many fields you want, field names, what type of data should be filled and our site creates the HTML code to copy and paste to your site!
  2. Works with any web hosting account. Your web hosting server does not need to be able to run scripts, the powerful server of the provider processes the form submission, sends you an email with the information and then redirect the visitor to your thank you web page, without the visitor knowing he left your web site. Because of this, the forms are working properly on any kind of web hosting account.
  3. Stop 100% Spam! You probably know already what a bad idea is to put the simple mailto: tag on the contact page. Email harvesting software will find and collect it (even if you are trying to trick it by replacing the @ with at or . with dot) adding it on spam lists. The contact forms contain a Captcha Image displaying letters and numbers which are difficult to be read by non humans, stopping 100% automated submissions.
  4. Tons of features to personalize your form. Manage easy all your HTML forms from your Control Panel, adding, editing and removing forms.

Better Twitter experience with TweetDeck

TweetDeck is your personal browser for staying in touch with what's happening now, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, and some other social networks. TweetDeck shows you everything you want to see at once, so you can stay organized and up to date. Tweetdeck is an Adobe Air desktop application, available for the Windows, MAC, and Linux operating systems as your desktop application, and iPhone and iPad as well.

It is made of panes that allow you to take the enormous amount of information contained within Twitter and break it down into parts that are more easily managed.

The dark gray TweetDeck beta is one of the more attractive Twitter desktop apps out there. With it, you're able to engage with Twitter tweets much as you can on Twitter.com, and then some. TweetDeck beta, for one, also lets you follow friends' Facebook and MySpace status updates. It shares some similarities with Seesmic Desktop in its default tri-column view, which you can also shrink down to a single column. The requisite filtering buttons and other management tools help keep your in-box tidy. Like other Twitter apps, TweetDeck beta shortens links and manages pictures. You can block and unfollow contacts, even reporting them as spam.

The extras make it nice. TweetDeck beta includes a translation tool, and has recently added syncing, so you can keep your feed preferences and feed content identical on multiple computers and even the iPhone. It offers a lot of visual customization options, and the capability to add new columns, to keep up on search terms, for example.

TweetDeck beta still has some growing to do, especially in making its additional features a little more intuitive. So far its feature set is encouraging, and more robust than other, better established Twitter apps.

How you can post to your Blogger Blog via email?

Let’s face it: posting via email to your Blogger blog might not be the most convenient way of updating your blog. However, you can think about different situations, when this feature would be useful. For example you cannot access your Blogger account for some reason, or your favorite third party posting application has crashed, or you are on the go, and your phone does not have the data package or necessary feature to make mobile posts. Anyway, be aware that there is a simple method of doing it by sending email message.

The task can be divided in two parts:

  1. Registering you email account for posting on you blog.

By default this email posting feature is turned off on all new blogs but if you want to enable this you need to follow the instructions given below.

·         Login to blogger.com and choose the blog (if you have multiple blogs in your account) for which you want to enable email posting.

·         Click on small envelope icon beside blog's title. See image given below:

·         On a pop-up set a secret word of your choice. See image given below:

·         Now Click on the Save Button, After setting up a secret word would make an email address like this:


Keep the email address secret as this would be a public email address and anyone from anywhere is able to send an email automatically publishing it to your blog.  Keep it in safe place on your records or just remember it.

Be sure to specify whether or not you prefer your email posts to publish automatically. If this option is not checked, then your posts will be saved on your account but will not appear on your blog until you log in to Blogger.com and publish them yourself.

Alternatively, in Settings | Email you can create a Mail-to-Blogger address which you will use to send posts via email to your blog:

     2.      Publishing to your blog via email message.

  •      Create a new email from any email address.
  •      Add your secret email address of your blog in recipient's address box.
  •      Put in meaningful Subject because that would be the title of the post.
  •      Write the text in the email body and that would be the text of the post. You can also attach images in your posts by attaching the images in email as attachments.
  •      Sometimes email programs append text to the bottom of each sent message; to make sure this garbage doesn't get posted to your blog, put #end at the end of your post.

There are two formats that emails generally use: plain text and HTML. Many email clients will have an option to switch between the two modes. Here's what happens when you use either of these formats in Mail-to-Blogger:

Plain Text: Everything is published on your blog exactly as you type it. That is, entering <strong> in your post will not make text bold. The <> brackets will be escaped and your published blog will actually display <strong> as text.

HTML: All HTML is interpreted as HTML. If you use your email client's formatting functions to make text bold, you may not see the <strong> tag, but it will be included in your post and the text will appear bold on your blog. If you want to enter code manually, you may need to use an "edit source code" mode or something similar in your email client.
