Mobile Blog?

Posted on January 12, 2009. Filed under: Blogging, Mobile Blogging, moblog, Sidekick, WordPress, WordPress.com |

I recently purchased a T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 as my new cell phone. The sidekick(SK) works quite well to use twitter, check my gmail and use Google Reader.

One drawback to the SK is that there is no flash support, so no Youtube videos, last.fm, or any other site with flash.

With the full keyboard and Camera on the SK, I wanted to do a 100 percent mobile blog via my SK. So with the lack of flash and other limitations of the SK, the regular version of WordPress.com was unusable.

I used Google to search for a hosted blogging platform that doesn’t use flash, or was a true mobile blogging (moblog) platform. After 2 or 3 hours of searching, I remembered about m.wordpress.com and I am using it now.

So we will see how this works out. The only problem I can see with this is that WordPress.com strips out html code. So this post will also double as a test post.

The thing that gets me is with all the smart phones out there and the move towards a more mobile web, there are very few platforms for a 100% mobile blog. Maybe Matt and the WordPress crew can make some additions to the mobile side of WP.com.

If any of you out there have any other suggestions post them here.
