Making Blot.im work with Gmail using IFTTT

Here is what I am trying to accomplish. Ability to post to Blot.im blog by send an email to my gmail. The title of the blog will be the subject of the email and the content of the blog will be the content of my email. Since there is no direct integration between the two, I am planning to leverage the power of IFTTT.

Step 1: Setup Gmail

Step 2: IFTTT

Step 3: Test

I sent a test email to my gmail account your_email_id_here+blog@gmail.com with title in subject and content and email. Within a few minutes a text file with blog title is created in my Blot folder and my post is online.
