Google implement mobile blogging with Blogger

2 comments

Text messaging-enabled mobile device with a text messaging plan. This service is free from Google. You can blog from your mobile, all you need is to snap a photo and send an mms to Google.

Using  Blogger Mobile  is easy: Snap a photo and write some text on your mobile phone, send it to  go@alpha.blogger.com , and it gets posted to your mobile blog!

How does Blogger Mobile work?

You send a message - which can be a photo, some text, or both - to go@blogger.com. We take care of the rest. In other words, we auto-provision a new blog and publish the post. It's that simple.

Here's how to start a mobile blog:

1. Send an MMS to go@blogger.com to create your mobile blog. The text and/or photo in your MMS will be uploaded to that blog right away. Google will message you back with the address, (so you can visit your new blog on the web) and a token (so you can claim your blog and access it from your account).

2. If you feel like changing anything on your new mobile blog or if you already have a Blogger account and want the posts to go to your existing blog, you can log in to go.blogger.com and enter the token we sent to your phone. You'll then have the option to claim your new mobile blog and merge it with your existing blog. Note to users whose blog address does not contain blogspot.com: Once you make the aforementioned switch, new mobile posts will be published to your chosen blog but mobile posts published prior to the switch will not be moved over automatically.

Blogger Mobile is also built into some Sony Ericsson cameraphones, so you can post to your blog with just a few clicks.

iPhone users: Phones without MMS can still post to Blogger via email with Mail2Blogger.

Hah! Well what do you know. You don't need a computer anymore to blog. This service could take off especially with more and more people using Iphones. Nice one Google.
