MoFo Blogging

IMG00054.JPG, originally uploaded by raenmiro.

Blog your mobile phone pictures through flickr!

I have decided to affectionately name this MoFo blogging as in Mobile ‘Foto’ blog.

All you need is a camera phone and an email application on your mobile.

Below are 2 different ways of doing this, depending on how you want these to show up in your blog. One is for a Widget and the other is for an actual blog entry with your photo.

Widget Directions:

1- Go to this flickr page

2- If you are logged in, you will see a unique email on the right hand side of the page. This is all you need.

3- Compose an email on your phone to your super secret email address that flickr have provided and attach the photo from your phone.

4- Send email and watch it magically appear on your blog.

Note for young players: You will need to have the Flickr widget up and running in your sidebar to see these. You can add this by going to Appearence-Widgets-Flickr (WordPress) and adding your account details in the edit field.

Blog Entry Directions:

Alternately you can post a blog entry containing your photo.

1- Follow above directions to obtain your personal email from flickr.

2- Configure your blog details with flickr here

3- Set up your email posts so they automatically go to your blog here

4- In the bottom right hand coner of the page once you click save you will see another email. This is the email you need to send to for your photo to be published as a blog.

5- Compose your email. Depending on how you have configured your settings, what you write in the body area of your email should come up as the written part of your blog.

Best of luck to all!

Edit: I’m fine tuning this myself so let me know how you are all doing!

How To: Mo-blogging

As Biggie said, mo’ money, mo’ problems..MO’ BLOGGING!

Well…not quite, although if you have ever read Kanye West’s blogs (proceeds with caps lock)…anyhow back to the topic.

Blogging from your mobile is easy, fun and crazy wild! Most of you will have phones with web browsing, and WordPress has a mobile website so it doesn’t chew through all your available bytes by loading up useless pictures and frames that render websites useless on phones.

HERE WE GO!

Step 1:
Load up your web browser on your phone.

Step 2:
Go to http://m.wordpress.com

Step 3:
You will see a log in screen. Log in. Start to feel extremely cool and savvy.

Step 4:
Write a post on your ridiculously cramped mobile keypad. Think to yourself, maybe this could have waited till I got home…

Step 5:

PUBLISH! Sigh and give yourself a satisfying pat on the back.

As you can see, all easy to follow! Go forth mo-bloggers!

(I’m really enjoying mo’…)
