  • Blogger on the Go? Mobile Blogging Could be the Answer

    16 June 2011

    MobloggingNot only do most businesses these days have a blog, but blogging has also become the most popular way for people to share their vacation photos, tell stories of happenings in their life, and even vent their frustrations. In fact, it’s safe to say that almost everyone either knows a blogger or is a blogger. And because blogs are so straight-forward and easy to create and maintain, more and more people are turning to blogging all the time.

    But what do you do if you’re on the go a lot and don’t have time to set up the laptop and write a blog post? Technology has finally caught up with the big boom in the numbers of bloggers by allowing bloggers to access their blog content through the use of their mobile device. Mobile blogging – also known as “moblogging,” has really caught on, and the number of people using mobile devices in order to compose their blog posts is constantly increasing.

    With the use of a mobile device such as an iPhone, Android, or other smart-phone, bloggers are able to gain access to their blogs, just as they would on their PC or laptop. This means that a blogger will have the option to tend to their blog even when they’re not sitting in front of a monitor. A computer is no longer necessary in order to manage your blog!

    Mobile Blogging Methods

    In addition to mobile phones, a couple other mobile devices that can be used to gain access to your blog are iPads and PDAs. There is very little difference when accessing a blog through a mobile device verses a desktop computer, so making use of this technology is perfect while traveling or simply on the go.

    You’ll need to know whether or not your mobile device is capable of supporting blog access, and you’ll also need to find out if your mobile provider’s network is able to support this type of feature for the type of device you’ve got.

    There’s no doubt that using mobile blogging is incredibly convenient. You’ll be able to stay on top of your comments, check your traffic, and also entertain your readers, no matter where you are. Now that you’re mobile blogging, you could even take your mobile device with you everywhere you go and write about all the sights you’ve seen, and create entire blog posts about your travels.

    It’s Super Easy!

    In order to get your mobile blogging underway, you’ll need to have access to a computer that you will use to set up your blog. While in the dashboard of the blog, you will be able to identify the features of the blog and compare them against the features that your cell phone has. Once you’ve verified that your mobile device is capable of accessing your blog, it’s time to start posting!

    Thanks to mobile moblogging, sharing your thoughts and ideas has never been so easy! You don’t want to work all the time, but having the option to check up on your blog any time of day – no matter where you are – is pretty cool at the least.

    Have you tried mobile blogging or do you plan to? What do you think of the idea? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

      Moblogging, I love it! Hundreds, if not thousands of people are starting to write blogs everyday so it’s great how blogging has evolved. People can now update their blogs just like they can update their Twitter and Facebook when not at a computer. Great article thanks for sharing!

      Moblogging – is there an app for that??

      I’m currently an expat and left my smartphone back home. I’ve been wrestling with the idea of getting another and as I break into the blogosphere I may have to buck up and make the purchase.

      On the other hand, it is nice to break away from the computer so having that 24/7 access could be detrimental in more ways than one.

      I guess it comes down to personal preference.

      I used to mobile blog when I was on the Blogger platform but now I have moved to WordPress I have not thought about it but if there is a way I am going to use it. If anybody knows of a way it would save me some time searching if you can let me know of it.

      Mobile blogging what a cool name. More and more people are using their cell phone to communicate via internet mobile blogging is a normal evolution.

      I have never tried mobile blogging but I think it’s a really cool stuff. If getting access and reading blog posts through mobile devices is cool for blog readers, moblogging is just as cool for bloggers. It’s amazing to see how the blogging era has evolved and I’m pretty sure it would be evolving as we search for more beneficial ways and tools for the blogosphere.

      I guess mobile microblogging is ok, but writing long posts on a mobile phone doesn’t work for me…

      I like the idea but isn’t this what Twitter is for? Mobile blogging is for random thoughts while blogging is for sitting down and really contemplating things. Either venue is attractive for different reasons.

      I agree with Sasha. I think of mobile blogging more as twitter.
