Chrome Users: Try the Extension

Want to receive notifications instantly, even when you’re not on

Add the new extension for Chrome and as soon as you get a new follower or a new like on one of your posts, a notification will appear in your browser:

Simply click the icon to view your latest notifications:

Start following new blogs without visiting

The Chrome extension also makes it easy to follow sites from your account by displaying a Follow button whenever you’re browsing a site that has an RSS feed.

Clicking the Follow button will add new posts from the website to your reader, and send you an email each time an update is published. (You can change your default email settings if you like.)

When you visit a site, you’ll notice that the extension icon will turn blue, but keep in mind that you can follow blogs on Blogger, Tumblr, and other services, too.

Quickly post cool stuff you find while browsing the web

Press This is a lightning-fast way to publish content on your blog without ever visiting Click the extension, then select Press This whenever you find something on the web that you’d like to share on your blog, and a pop-up editor will appear:

Select the blog you’d like to post to, then hit publish to share a link to the site. Your blog will be updated, and you can continue browsing the web from wherever you left off.

If you’d like to publish an excerpt of text along with the link to the site, simply highlight the material with your cursor before clicking Press This:

And it will appear in the editor for you to publish along with the link:

We hope this makes it easier for you to share cool stuff on your blog quickly! If there’s anything you’d like to see in future versions of the extension, be sure to let us know.

    I don’t use Chrome, but this is great for people who do!


  3. Cathy

    Awesome! :>


  4. Pete Denton

    That is a great idea. I’ll have to try that out.


  5. Mikalee Byerman

    Nice new features! I typically don’t use Chrome — but I could. So I think I will…

    The “ripped” text should be in a blockquote tag, IMHO. 🙂

    If you’re using Chrome and have a blog, it is a must! Makes things so much easier!

    I’m a little nervous about the “this extension can access your data from websites and your tabs and browsing activity” part. Does that include passwords and usernames? How is that exactly safe? Aside from that, I like this and would be willing to use it.


    • Christopher Finke

      The extension does not access your usernames, passwords, or any other personal data; it only accesses the URL and title of the page you’re on when you click the “Press This” button so that it can use them to start your new post.

    Thanks for passing this tidbit along!

    I would love if it would grab the photo as well. Posterous has a bookmarklet tool that grabs your choice of excerpt. I started a posterous blog just for re-blogging over articles. It was indispensable.

    this is great



    This is a nice collaboration WordPress with Google.
    But I have a dream, if WordPress has and develops its own browser .Could it be?

    I have Chrome, and WANT (so terribly) to love it…. but simply cannot! 😦

    It’s long-awaited, thank you. I would like to have it for my Firefox :).


  45. Paolo Galli (@pgei)

    Is it possible to use it with a personal blog not on


  46. Iñigo



  47. Mark John Hiemstra (@markjohnh)

    Does it support multiple logins? I don’t mean one account with multiple blogs, I mean multiple blogs that are accessed through separate accounts.

    Ugh, just one more reason why I love Google and I love Chrome.


  51. sugarandscrubs

    It asked me before I installed if it’s ok that the app can:

    Access my data on all websites
    Tabs and browsing activity

    why so nosy?

      That’s just what we need to be able to start a blog post with whatever is in the window, like the Press This bookmarklet works.

    This looks amazing, but sadly Chrome is giving me the biggest middle finger by not even letting me access its own store. :I It’s always been like that. I’ve tried every trick in the book to fix this, but nothing ever works. I’ll never be able to access the store.
