A few days ago, I was on a long flight and when it landed and the “okay” for cell phones was given, a lovely woman in the aisle across from me, cell phone at the ready, started thumb keying her phone with two hands, blurring fingers, typing out long text. It was just a phone, not a keyboard PDA, and her thumbs were working overtime.
We bumped into each other in the line to get off the plane and I commented on her thumb-cell ability. “Oh, I had to publish a post on my blog.” Due to the pressure of the crowds, I lost her in the airport, though I would have loved to chat with her more.
What I want to know is how you blog on the run? Do you blog on the run? Do you use your cell phone to blog? Or PDA?
I’m not talking about twittering. I want to know if you blog a “real blog post” (longer than 200 words) from your cell phone or PDA while riding the bus, commuting, flying, or eating lunch.
I blog on the road, which I think is different from blogging on the run. I use my laptop, hooked up to any WIFI connection I can find. I will write blog posts on my portable keyboard connected by infrared to my PDA on the airplane, then transfer them via Bluetooth to my laptop for posting, but I don’t blog from my phone. Do you?
How? Any tips and tricks?
