Outsource your Mobile Phone Blogging

Filed under: — Carthik @ 12:19 am

The almost-perfect solution to moblogging using your Cellular or Mobile Phone and WordPress is here.

Airblogging provides a method for you to post to your WordPress blog using your mobile phone. You can send pictures (photos) or text to an address and have them appear on your WordPress blog, which makes AirBlogging the perfect outsourcing solution for moblogging.

It currently works with a host of Cellular providers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Cingular, NexTel, Sprint, Virgin and MetroPCS. You are required to provide a few details when you sign up, and the rest is taken care of.

You probably already use the Ping-o-matic service to ping update services, so outsourcing particular blog-related services is not new.

  1. I just wrote a post on how to outsource a “link blog” or “side blog” using del.icio.us. Full instructions from the del.icio.us site are here. That gives you an HTML link which you can include using a PHP include function.

  2. I’ve used AirBlogging with my Treo 600, but the problem is it relies on the Sprint system (in my case) for sending photos, which sucks quite a lot in several ways. I have changed to e-mailing my photos from my phone (instead of using Sprint’s SMS Picture Mail) and I post the photos directly to my blog through Flickr.

  3. Hi Kerim,
    Thanks for the heads-up.

    And Ruby, yeah, I stopped short of posting detailed instructions cause it was a pain getting it to work with my T-Mobile phone. That is also why I said “almost perfect”.

  4. Note: See my post before using del.icio.us – they require you to cache your feeds locally and I provide instructions on how to do so.
