Many die-hard WordPress mobile bloggers — like my humble self 😛 — write and publish blog posts everyday on their mobile phones. I, for instance, installed and fully customized my WordPress blog with my mobile phone — a low-end Nokia N80 Symbian S60v3 phone though I dished it long time ago for a Nokia E65 and later a Nokia E5.
Wordpress blogging on mobile phones is easy, with the help of good mobile browsers like Opera Mini and UCWeb, one can write, save and publish quality blog posts with thumbnails and screenshots.
Ironically, WordPress bloggers are complaining inceasantly of not being able to write and upload posts with their mobile phones. Some even say that one cannot manage a WordPress blog without a personal computer or cyber cafe. Lie!
Writing Blog Posts With Your Mobile Phone
First, get yourself a quality mobile browser like Opera Mini 7. If you use an Android or Blackberry phone, a WordPress Android or Blackberry application would do. Not quite sure if there’s a WordPress app for iPhone.
Login to your WordPress blog’s dashboard. Find “Quickpress” on the right-side of the dashboard.
If you don’t find QuickPress in your WordPress dashboard, go to “Screen options” and tick “QuickPress”.
Enter your Post’s title, Content and Tags(optional) in “QuickPress”. Click Save Draft.
You will see a message:
Click on Edit Post.
A full composer will be displayed. Here, you can select a Category for your post, insert images, draft, schedule and or publish your post.
Editing Your Blog Post
You ll notice that the text editor is not editable, just find Visual/ HTML above the post editor. Choose HTML.
Now you can edit the post fully on your mobile browser. After editing, click on Save Draft or Publish to publish your post.
Inserting Image In Your Blog Post
To upload image, click on
“upload/insert”, select “Browser uploader”.
You ll see an upload box, just click on it to select the image you want to upload from your phone. Click “Upload” and then “insert to post”.
Your image is now inserted into the blog post, click on Save Draft or Publish to publish your post.
Blogging with your mobile phone is awesome. For example, writing a post with your phone while lying on your bed…gives you a comfortable enviroment and relaxed brain. News bloggers don’t have to carry a laptop anywhere they go, if you are a news blogger, you write-up news wherever it happens, of course your mobile phone is what you have with you everywhere, everytime. In essence Mobile blogging is very important 😛
