Mobile Blogging

I don't know about you but I do must of my blogging on the go using my phone or tablet. It's really easy and surprisingly fast especially when you have your keyboard setup where you can drag your finger from letter to letter.

I really like the fact that if I see something interesting I can snap a picture of it and write a quick post about it using a Blogger, WordPress, or whatever your favorite blogging app is.

Now you can even share your post on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or just about any social network for that matter with ease right from your mobile device.

There are a few things that I don't like about mobile blogging on some devices like my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and 4 when using the Blogger app and trying to insert a link, I get the problem that's in the picture below.

Now after making over a dozen posts from my phone I finely noticed the link tool moves after you select text, before I was reediting my posts online because of my thumb placement when typing I did not notice the link icon moved to the top of the keyboard or bottom of the screen if no keyboard is up.

Its very annoying but workable now that I am aware of it and the feeling of dumbass is passing. Well damn now after testing it with this post it does not work.

It worked in another post I just did, I guess my phone is really enjoying messing with me, smart phone, more like smart-ass phone.

Anyway mobile blogging is great, especially for quick posts that don't require very many pictures or affiliate links. I have found that it is easy to edit them in on my laptop or desktop or if I have the time I will add all my links and such to a notepad app then copy and paste them all into the blogging app that I happen to be using.

Well that is all I have for now until I get around to editing this post on my laptop or desktop it's just going to have to work.
