Is it worth it to blog from my phone?
I’m still trying to find a way to do mobile blogging in a user friendly way. I can’t imagine someone doing real blogging from a cell phone, even if it is a smartphone like my Touch Pro 2. I’m doing this message from my phone, but I haven’t found a good way to do this.
I did install a mobile plug-in pack for wordpress which does make the website automatically detect if someone is viewing the site from a mobile phone. I’ll need to play around with the widgets to see if any of them are worthwhile. I’ve never tried using the adsense code for mobile or for sitemaps, but now is probably as good of a time as any to try to figure out how it works. I do think that mobile traffic is only going to increase. The question in my mind is how much better the mobile devices will get as to whether it is even necessary to have special formatting for a cell phone.
The one feature I was hoping to find would be an easy way to upload photos from my phone to the blog. The browsers I have tried so far don’t seem to work, and the mobile pack is just a majorly cut down interface. I hope it at least will give me a choice of categories.
I have a few upcoming ideas for posts, and a few relate to my attempt to find a good way to blog while away from home. I’ll see if I can find a nice solution for uploading pictures to wordpress from my phone.
