Blogging On The Go #DigiLit
So we’re all leading busier and busier lives, and I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it harder and harder to arrange for moments of inspiration, and times sat at the computer to happen at the same time.
So here are our quick top tips for blogging on the go (sorry for people who don’t have iPhones):
The Blogger app:
If you have a blog hosted by google, then is a must have app. Easy to use, quick to set up. You can work on your blog as and when you get the chance.
If you have a WordPress website, then give this a go. There’s a little setting up needed if you have a self hosted WordPress site, and the UI isn’t great, but can be good for writing drafts at least.
By this, I mean an actual notepad. Great for scribbling drawings, and ideas down. Or you could get a smart phone and just write ideas on its note pad app… (One day I’ll get into the habit of using Evernote, to synch my notes online.)
Write email. Send. Done.
Need I say more.
Have something to say, but they’re getting confused between your head and your hands?
Or maybe you just want to rant? Have you considered recording yourself? If you have a smart phone / computer with a webcam you’ll probably find its easier then you think to upload a video onto YouTube.
Alternatively, if you don’t like sharing your face with the world, but like your voice, try checking out audioboo.
Don’t write a lot.
The blogging platform Tumblr, and a number of WordPress themes have some great ways of presenting a little bit of text. Don’t think because you don’t have a lot to say, it’s not worth sharing.
Sometimes it’s good to get to help you focus. This post was mostly written on the iphone notepad app, whilst enjoying the sunshine in the local graveyard. (Closet nicest patch green space to me, see the picture for my view.) Granted I’ll tidy this up at home, but the grand majority of the work is done.
Sometimes getting away from distractions can get the mind focused… Now where’s my Bible app…
