Posting to Google blogspot.com with an android smartphone and a minor ramble

I have posted around 2,500 bog posts to this blog and it has had about a million and a quarter pageviews, so I guess it has taken quite a lot of my time.

Every so often I take stock of the logistics of blogging and today was one of those days, anyway I have finally cracked posting properly from my android phone.

If there are any apps that allow you to do this as well as you can with an ordinary computer I haven’t managed to find them, however the android phone Chrome browser has now improved to the point where you can use the blog administration pages well enough to post using it.

Frankly I don’t think there is anything you can’t do this way that you can do using an ordinary laptop or pc. The only limitations seem to be down to your manual dexterity using a small touch screen.  

Here is the link to the post I did today using this method, the only bit I didn’t post with my smartphone was the picture of the smartphone for obvious reasons http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/posting-to-blogspotcom-with-android.html


Here in Ramsgate a new sweetshop has opened in the High Street, no sign yet so I don’t know what it’s called.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
