#2 — IFTTT and Google Sheets: Create a List of my Medium Blog Posts
When I post (in Medium), have the post added to a new row in a Google Sheet
I blog on Medium (duh, that’s where you are seeing this!) and I want to always have a current list of my blog posts (with little effort by me).
It’s a very handy reference resource for reviewing, searching and linking back to what I have published!
So, here is my outline of expected ongoing effort on my part:
- Publish a blog post,
- Create a new item in my “Medium Blog Posts” Google Sheet (automated)
- Add categories, to facilitate filtering later, in Google Sheets,
- Open Excel, click the “refresh” button, and
- Have all my content current, accessible, and analyzable, within Excel!
Here is the workflow:

“Medium Posts to Google Drive Spreadsheet #Google #Medium”
Automation End Result
I automated the back-end of this process as well. A Microsoft Excel file I created imports the Google Sheet list of blog posts into Excel and enables me to share lists, categories or other selected content with others — all linked back to the Medium posts.
I discussed the Excel Resource Dashboard (shown above) in an earlier post here (“Microsoft Excel — Automated Content Resource Dashboard”)
