Bloggiesta Mini Challenge: PhraseExpress

Posted March 20, 2016 by Emily in Events and Features, Special Feature / 8 Comments


Today I want to share with you my absolute favorite blogging tool. This tool can be used on any computer, with any operating system. Whether you use blogger, wordpress, facebook or twitter, this tool will be your new best friend. Trust me. I use this every single day, every single time I’m on the computer and it saves me so much time. This miracle application is called:


PhraseExpress is a WONDER. This application is a spellchecker, a template creator, clipboard manager, and autocompleter but the most  amazing thing that it does is called autotext.

Basically, you pick out something that’s long and annoying and you type all the time, for instance people ask about my Twitter Chat Calendar a lot on twitter so I want the link handy. I can set up PhraseExpress so that every time I type a string of characters (For me its twitcal) It automatically inserts WHATEVER YOU WANT. I use this for links, for hashtags for popular twitter chats, emails that I type all the time, the possibilities are endless.

Take a few minutes and watch the first three minutes of this video. The last two minutes get deeper into the functionality of PhraseExpress. This little program runs in the background until you need it.

I Challenge You!

Download PhraseExpress and try it this week. Set up one or two autotext blurbs of text that you use all the time and try using PhraseExpress instead of typing them. Set up some email templates and and see how much easier it is to just hit a button instead or retyping the same things every time. I would love to hear about the different ways you discover to use this program. I’m sure that you will come up with some amazing and innovative uses for it that I haven’t even thought of. Download it, try it out and let me know what you think!
