Rapid Poster

If you're a blogger like me you put off posting pictures on your blog because you have to upload them 5 at a time and who has that kind of time? Well email is my new blogging friend.

If I am out and think of something I'd like to blog, I send an email via my phone to the blog and it posts a draft. I can attach a picture and it uploads the picture, too! I have the blog address saved in my address book and this makes quick work out of it.

If you use Blogger, follow these steps to get started:

Open your blog and click on the "Customize" link (top left-hand corner)
Click on the "Settings" tab
Click on the "Email and Mobile" link
In the "Email Posting Address" you can edit the email address so it is unique and nobody else could figure it out
Choose your setting. I like "Save emails as draft posts" but you can do whatever floats your boat.
Click on the "Save Settings" button and you're ready to post!

Please Note: If you have a large number of photos to post, email sometimes returns undeliverable because of the size of the email. Instead, download and install Picasa (free download). Once inside, select all the pictures you'd like to post and then click on the email icon at the bottom of the page. This seems to handle emailing pictures seamlessly.
