Blogging Tip...Blogging From Your Smart Phone

Hi everyone!! Today's blogging tip is how to blog from your smart phone with the Blogger app. I'm not 100% sure if the Blogger app is available for all smart phone, but this tutorial will be from my iPhone.

This app is great when you're out and about and want to share a post on your adventures. You might be on vacation, out with friends shopping at your favorite quilt shop, at a yummy restaurant and you want to share a post on your delicious dinner.

You also might be a your child's school play or dance recital and a few quick pictures from your cell phone can be in a post in no time!!


It so easy to do a post from your phone, so let's see how to do it!

Here is a screen shot of my iPhone and the Blogger app circled.

You can download it free from your the App Store.

Blogger app

This is the home screen of the app.

Blogger app

If you click on the "Posts" section, you will see all your posts you've already done. You can edit and delete them from here by clicking the drop down arrow on the right.

This section is the "New Post" section. You can write in the title, write the post and add you labels too!!

At the bottom of this screen, you can choose to "take a picture" with the little camera icon on the left or click the picture icon on the bottom right and go into your photos on your phone and select from there.

Blogger app

The other section you can click on is the "View Blog" button and it brings you right to your blog's home page.

The last section is the "Settings" options.

From the home screen you can also take picture from the camera icon in the upper right corner.

The next line down where mine says "Sew Many Ways", that drop down arrow will let you select form all your blogs if you have more than one.

If you love blogging and want to try "Blogging On The Go", look into the blogger app. It's quick and easy and user friendly.

I haven't used it in a while, but I did use it last fall when we lost power for days during a hurricane. We had no computer service for the whole week except for our cell phones. Keeps friends and family updated.

If anyone can share in the comment  section if they have the Blogger app on other types of smart phones, that will be helpful. Thanks!!

Happy Blogging,
~Karen~

  5. I have the app on my My Touch and it works wonderfully. It's easy and so convenient. The only issue I have with it is the poor photo quality. Probabbly a quick fix but for now if I use it I just go back to the post when I am at my desktop and edit the photos.

    2. I attempted to use the Blogger app on my iPad during my 4 week trip (http://vintagezest.blogspot.com/p/travel.html), but it's pretty tough actually. I had to download a paid app because it was very difficult to work with on long posts. Anyways, what I had to do is go to webpicasa.google.com through Safari and upload the pictures there. Then, I would add the pictures into the blog post from my Picasa album. Let me know if that works at vintagezest(at)gmail(dot)com. If not, sorry I wasn't much help!

  9. Dear Karen,
    I just wanted to let you know that I have wanted to start my own blog for a long time but I was very intimidated and didn't even know where to start. Your blogging tips made me feel like I could do this and were so incredibly helpful and instrumental in starting this adventure. I went live with my blog Piers and Chandeliers last week and although it is just in the beginning stages - I feel like with the help from your wonderful blogging tips - I can really do this. Thank you soooo much! You can check me out at piersandchandeliers.blogspot.com if you get a chance! I would love to hear what you think!
    Thanks Again,
    Erin

  15. Thanks for sharing the tips. I am not a faithful blogger but would like to be. It's easy for me to take photos with my phone to post on my blog!

  16. I use the blogger app to write posts from my phone, then I add photos and save as a draft. Of I uploa as a post it puts all the photos at the bottom, instead of throughout the post the way I like. They also seen the right size. So then I just get to a computer and tweak the photo size and placement and post the final draft. It's better than nothing, but not perfect as I still have to involve a computer!

  17. I do the same as the above commenter, but you've alerted me to new buttons that I've so far ignored, so I might try some new ideas now, thanks

  18. I use BlogPress as I find it so much more user friendly. Easier to add photos into the blog in the place I want them to end up...and alter the size, well worth the money.

  19. Thanks for the info. Loaded the app on my phone and tried it worked ok until I had to sign in as my account to Blogger is under a different user than my phone so it wouldn't let me in. Hmmmmm....need to figure this out. :)
