    Thanks for sharing this Ade,

    About 50% of my blogging task are usually done on my HTC sensation z710e Android mobile. I write my post on it, save as draft upload to main site for adding images, proof reading and finally, hitting the publish button.
    Moderating comments, social media marketing etc are done on mobile.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Adesanmi, I would love to blog from my mobile and didn’t realize about the email option. I once did from my mobile and hit publish by mistake instead of draft. Oops! That was the last time I tried it:) The buttons can be much smaller to read on mobile. I really like the options you have provided us, thank you! I may try it again!

    i totally agree with the writer that social media can get active from anywhere in the world and post can be shared globally even by sitting in the bathroom, lol.
    blogs act as the most important agent for interaction.

    I think it always depends on the blogger and how the blogger creates the content. I think the biggest issue with mobile blogging I have is the size of the screen. I like big screens and therefore prefer to do my blogging from my laptop.

    Hello Ade,

    Blogging on the go these days is so crucial that no blogger should underestimate it’s unique power. For most bloggers who live in countries where power is still a challenge, mobile devices, apart from being convenient and handy, also tend to hold power longer.

    I use a special App called Blogsy on my iPad. With blogsy, you can virtually achieve anything: from regular blogging, to uploading photos to scheduling your posts.

    And guess what? My iPad returns 12 solid hours of battery life!

    Always,
    Terungwa
