Mobile Blogging

If you have a mobile phone that you can email from, you can set up your blog to receive emails from it.

If that interests you, in Blogger, look at Settings/Email, and set up the mail-to-blogger address. Then just email to that from the phone. The 'empty box' in the address acts as a password, so keep it secret.

Depending on your provider, you may also be able to send photographs, and some even handle video clips to (if only for a short time, and plugins often required to view them).

Some phones also have an RSS Reader. Just like Google Reader, you can add in RSS feeds. One handy tip is to add your own blog in to the phone's Reader, that way you can check to make sure your blog posts are going through.

As with anything to do with mobile phones (especially accessing the Internet), do be aware that costs are involved that you will have to pay to your service provider.
