Keeping up with emails you need to take an action on can be difficult, but by applying a specific term, you can create a new order in Shippo for further action. Once you set up this Gmail-Shippo integration, whenever you get a new email matching your search term in Gmail, Appy Pie Connect will automatically create a new order in Shippo, without any manual effort on your part. This allows you to easily create shipping labels for new orders without having to wait or enter the information yourself.

Why Use Writing Software
The truth is, I still prefer to just use pen and paper. It’s faster, more flexible, and feels more natural. I have no problem writing paragraphs or sentences on a piece of paper. But when it comes to outlining, mindmapping, or brainstorming, there is nothing better than using software. Here are a few reasons why I think you should be using writing software when writing your blog post.
You Can Focus More
When you start out with pen and paper, there are all sorts of things that can distract you. An email notification pops up. The dishwasher starts running. Your toddler asks for snacks. Your wife calls you into the kitchen to help with dinner. When you’re using writing software, you’re working in a virtual environment where there are no distractions – at least not the kind that you can’t easily turn off or ignore. And that makes it much easier to focus on the task at hand.
You Can Outline Without Limits
Outlining with pen and paper works in theory because you have infinite space in which to write an outline. In practice, it’s harder than it sounds because it’s hard to keep track of what lines belong where when you run out of room and have to cross something out. With writing software, you can simply add more blocks when you need them (or try some other top like a mindmapping top. You’ll always have enough room to work and cross things out as necessary.
You Can Brainstorm Freely
I used to think that brainstorming was best done with pen and paper because it allowed me to get my ideas down fast without having to worry about formatting too much or having to worry about limiting myself too much. As a result, I would often spend more time thinking about how I wanted my ideas to look than actually thinking about the ideas themselves. That doesn’t happen with writing software. If an idea pops into my head and I don’t have time right then to write it out, I can just copy it over into Evernote or another app and come back to it later. I don’t have to worry about keeping track of my thoughts while they’re fresh or worrying about what format they’ll take on paper. I can just put them in the software, let them incubate for a while, and come back to them later when I’ve done some more brainstorming or thought about my topic more deeply.
How To Know When To Start Writing Your Post Before You Finish Your Outline
After you’ve written your mindmap or outline, the next step is to start writing your post itself. Most writers will tell you that this is the easy part because it’s just about transferring what you already wrote onto the page in a coherent fashion. And for the most part, they’re right. But before you start writing anything, you need to ask yourself the fplowing question. “Will this idea work?” If your answer is no, then scratch it. Don’t even try it because odds are that whatever it is won’t work anyway and you’re just wasting your time. But if your answer is yes, then go ahead and start writing so long as you fplow these guidelines:
Start by Skipping Some Steps (If You Have To)
If you have a pretty good idea of what your first paragraph should look like, feel free to skip straight to that point instead of writing the intro first (assuming the intro isn’t terribly long. Not only will this save you time but it will also help focus your creative energy on what really matters – crafting an excellent first paragraph that draws people in and gets them reading the rest of your post. Everything else can wait until later – after all, you already wrote it down in your outline so there’s nothing technically stopping you from doing so. So if your first paragraph is ready and waiting in your outline, skip past the intro and go right to that part if you want! Just be sure to go back later and complete those other steps before publishing your post!
Skip The Process Step If You Are Comfortable Doing So
If you know how to do something fplow a certain process – like setting up a podcast or installing something via FTP – then feel free to skip or skim over the process step if necessary so long as you feel confident enough in what fplows to know what you need to do next. On the other hand, if you aren’t sure how to do something, read every step carefully so that you understand everything before moving on – especially if this process is one that comes up frequently for you! For example, I know a lot about blogging and building websites so I naturally assumed I knew how to publish this blog post when I finished writing it. But as I was sitting there trying to figure out how to get it published, I realized that I had no idea what I was doing so I spent a little extra time reading through the process (and asking questions where needed. so that I could avoid making any mistakes with my post!
