I just tested the Jetpack feature “Publicize”. Publicize lets you broadcast your post to your different social networks. It get published as a link to your post. See the images for examples:

Facebook
Facebook
Twitter
Twitter
Tumblr
Tumblr

The problem with this is that Publicize doesn’t treat each post format differently. The particular blog post was formatted as a “Quote”. I would like it to extract and publish the whole message as a status update on Twitter and Facebook. It would be fantastic if the link could be optional. I know that Publicize promises none of these things, I’m just saying that it would be amazing if eventually it did 😉 .

Your thoughts on this?

Some of my favorite quotes I refer to as principles. One of them comes from Shorinji Kempo, a martial art that I’ve been practicing for the last 10 years.
In japanese it’s “力愛不二” (“riki ai funi”), which means that strength and love stand together. The founder of Shorinji Kempo, Doshin So, argued that

“Strength without love is nothing more than violence, and love without strength is powerless.“

I try to live by that every day, and it guides me in being a mindful person who act with strength in my care for others.
