Blogger Gets in Microblogging Game with New Mobile and Email Publishing Options

by , Comments

If you have a blog on Blogger, you can now publish via SMS, MMS and Email on your mobile phone. This can essentially turn Blogger into a microblogging platform, if you want it to be.

Actually, the great thing about this update is that it allows your Blogger blog to be both traditional blogging mixed with microblogging. Not that you couldn't do that before. But the mobile phone options give it that "on-the-go" feel.

To set up SMS/MMS

1. Go to your Blogger dashboard
2. Click the phone icon next to the blog you wish to use the option on
3. Blogger will show you a claim code
4. Text the claim code to Blogger at 256447 (or MMS it to [email protected])
5. You'll receive a verification code on your phone.
6. Type verification code back into Blogger. You're all set

To set up Email posting

1. Go to your Blogger dashboard
2. Click the envelope icon next to the blog you wish to use the option on
3. You'll be prompted to create an email address for your blog.
4. Email the address whenever you wish to publish to the blog. (If you attach photos to the email, they will be inserted between the post's title and body.)
