Word Press For Google Docs? Meet Wordable [Startup Interview]

Wordable-Top Word Press For Google Docs? Meet Wordable [Startup Interview]We’ve been using WordPress here since 2011. One of the frustrating parts about Word Press is that you can’t collaborate in real time when doing a story. With a completely remote staff of writers it’s hard to get two heads together on the same page.

For a while we would work big stories through a Google Doc with real time editing and collaboration. We would then copy and paste the completed Google Doc into Word Press and have to reformat it along the way. Don’t forget about images, that was a whole other headache.

Now a new startup called Wordable has felt our pain and even though we’ve never met, they’ve blessed us with a tool that we will definitely use. Wordable takes Google Docs and puts them into Word Press with formatting and images intact. We got a chance to talk with Wordable co-founder Benji Hyam about their company. Check out the interview after the break.
