how to blog from a Blackberry?

As 2008 gets under way, I find myself on the road more, and I’m trying to wean myself off of using my laptop and wifi, and more on my Blackberry. It’s much quicker on the draw, and I can get online from almost anywhere.

But, I can’t figure out how to blog into my wordpress.org powered blog nor the L2 blog powered by wordpress.com – even tho’ they have a mobile service at m.wordpress.com — but on this trip, it didn’t work. That service said my browser needs to have iframe support

Help! What can I do?

    This probably isn’t what you’re looking for (I can’t get mobile or email blogging to wp.org either) but a few ways to get content there…

    Setup twitter to post to your blog
    Setup flickr moblog to post to your blog
    Use tumblr to post?

    I know there’s a plugin for twitter called Twitter Tools that’ll post all tweets to wp.org. And twitter is easy to update via sms, email, or heck, get jott involved!

    I have the tag ‘moblog’ added to any photo I upload to flickr and have that tag RSS going to twitter which could also post via Twitter Tools — though probably won’t post the photo, just text link. Look into twitterfeed.com and twittermail.com or maybe the flickrRSS wordpress plugin.

    You can upload pics, text, and vids to tumblr.com via email. So it’s what you’re talking about, just not with wp.org or wp.com. I know there are ways to post to wp.org via RSS, but I’ve never tried. But if that worked, you could use tumblr’s RSS to post. And if so, you could have tumblr take all of your flickrs and twitters and aggregate them all!

    Opera mini. I have that installed on my bberry, and I can view almost any webpage from it. great secondary browser if there are pages that the default bberry browser doesn’t display well.

    Thanks for quick responses! I’ve installed Opera Mini and it works great! (I don’t care for the extra clicks to fill out form fields, but it does work better overall than the built-in browser)

    Actually, the bb built-in browser does work ok w/ wordpress.org powered websites like this one, but opera mini does work better!

    How do you set Opera Mini as the default browser on the BB. When I get a comment alert via email from WP I click on the approval link but the BB browser comes up.

    Okay – I have a strange request. It’s pretty complex on the code side, but in theory (and in my head), makes perfect sense.

    Photo from Blackberry>Upload to Flickr using the BBApp>Have WP grab the photo from my Flickr account automatically, and post as an entry. Possible?

  7. Opera mini is definitely the solution. Once you have this installed you will be able to get at just about anything.
