If you have blogs that are important for you, you need to stay on top of them. You need to manage them so that they won’t fall into a state of neglect or disrepair. Do your blogs make money for you? If so, then you should treat your blogs like a business, which is what they are. Even if your blogs don’t make any money, but if that is your ultimate goal, the only way to accomplish what you are aiming for is to treat your blogs in a way that keeps them up to date and operating properly.
Everybody needs a vacation from time to time. Sometimes we have to go out of town on a business trip. Other times we have obligations that require us to be away from our computers. No doubt, life is complicated and busy. We are always on the run. So, how to you take care of your blog when you are always on the run?
WordPress for your Mobile Phone
That’s right, WordPress has apps for nearly any SmartPhone out there!
- WordPress for iOS (For iPhone, iPad, etc)
- WordPress for Android (for Android phones and tablets)
- WordPress for Windows Phone (for SmartPhones using the Windows Phone OS)
- WordPress for Blackberry
Yes, now you can keep your blog running even if you are on the road! In fact, no matter where you are, as long as you have an Internet Connection on your SmartPhone, you can access your blog and take care of the tasks needed to keep your WordPress blog operating smoothly.
I have not tried out the iOS or Windows Phone versions of WordPress, but I use WordPress for Android daily, whenever I am away from my PC. Mostly, I use WP Android for approving comments and for replying to comments on my blogs, since social interaction is a big part of the blogging that I do. I find WP Android version to be excellent for this task.
Yes, there are tasks that I would not really try to accomplish with the mobile version of WordPress. For example, although you can do it, I would not write posts using the mobile version, or other “big tasks.” I would not set up a site using the mobile version. But, for general day to day maintenance of your site, I find WP mobile versions to be excellent to get the job done.
So, if you are going on the road, you no longer have any excuse to leave your blog hanging! 😉
Happy mobiling, everybody!
