Mobile Phone Blogging

Orginal Blog Post:

It’s not all that easy or enjoyable to write blog articles on a mobile phone. So before you go on vacation make sure you write some extra posts and use the post date feature to publish them while you are away. Galway in Ireland is very nice by the way :)

After writing the original post via my mobile phone, as quoted above for a bit of fun when I was on holiday, I got to thinking about posting to blogs via mobile phones, so I thought I would add the following information for anyone interested:

    Opera Mini – A great little tool for browsing the web on your mobile phone. It uses very little data which is great for your phone bill and it’s easy to use. You may want to turn off images, as they look rubbish via a phone screen and waste data, but it does a great job at checking your blog, making comments, and even making a short post as above.
    Yomoblog – I haven’t tried this myself, but is a service that is aimed to make it easy to blog via your PDA or Mobile phone.

  1. Blogging has become so much easier, unfortunately it is still tough to blog on a mobile device. Devices such as your cell phone. The iphone and blackberry has made it so easy to send messages through your cell phone.

  2. I tried doing it on my Omnia but without a physical keyboard, it’s just hard work. Besides, where I’m currently located, HSDPA browsing is not free and is charged by the minute so I don’t really have the luxury of blogging from my Mobile. :(

  3. Great tip. I like the opera mini and have to take a look at the other site and see how that one works. Not sure how big blogging will be for mobile phones but i wnat to learn more.

  4. Ahh yes Opera Mini I love that little browser and had it on my Nokia e65. I am looking for a good mobile blogging app though if you know any. Micro bloggin is fine but sometimes I do want to post more than 40 characters from my mobile.

  5. Despite technological advancements with mobile phones, blogging is still not as easy as it could be. Let’s hope some slightly better aps come out soon. Agree, Opera Mini is good though.

  6. You are lucky if you are using Word Press. As they have new template plug-in for mobile phone. User browsing from mobile phone will see completely different website template which is mobile friendly. So if you have the plug-in installed and have a full keyboard mobile phone. Blogging on mobile phone is not a problem anymore.

  7. I love blogging so I’ve downloaded opera mini as advised on this post and honestly _ I hate it. Aside from the fact that the keyboard doesn’t show up right away, I found it really annoying when it says its done loading page but the images continue to show up making everything slower than I ever imagine.

  8. Well in my case, i really don’t do mobile blogging. It’s so hassle and keeps the task so much harder. However, i do agree with you that Opera mini is a great tool. I used it once and i was happy with it. It’s just that, i prefer blogging through my laptop.
