I’m annoyed as heck. I have a PDA that I absolutely love. I think it’s the best $165 I’ve ever spent. It has a camera, it plays MP3s, it has several games I love, I can keep track of my appointments, grocery lists, to do lists, contacts, surf the net, ICQ and tell time all over the world.
Why can’t I post to my WordPress blog? Because none of the popular moblogging applications out there natively support WordPress. Their offerings? MovableType of course, Live Journal in some cases (which is now owned by MT so that’s a no-brainer), and MetaWeblog API. So that’s the only option for moblogging to a WP blog. But try as I might, I can’t get it to work on any WP blog I have (and folks, I’ve got a few!).
Why is this? WordPress is no longer a lesser-known blogging application. It’s holding its own against and in fact may be overtaking MT in popularity. I don’t have any solid stats on that but would appreciate links to any you may know of. I’m basing this on the fact that most of my web design work is now for WP blogs, with the occasional MT and TextPattern client popping up now and again.
Here’s the rundown of the moblog applications I’ve tried, all without success:
- mo:Blog. Supports Blogger, Movable Type, Live Journal and MetaWeblog API.
- HBlogger. This one includes weird blog apps that I’ve NEVER heard of. Of course, WP isn’t supported other than through MetaWeblog API. Bah!
- PlogIt. This is the only Open Source moblogging software I’ve come across. Native WP? Not on your life.
I’m just tired of seeing Livejournal this and Livejournal that. I’d love to be able to fire up that PDA and bother the world with my pointless, trivial camera photos! Can you dig it? I knew that you could!
