Blogging Via Your BlackBerry


A blog is a website in which journal entries or articles are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called “blogging”. This phenomenon has grown tremendously, with even major news sources citing blogs every now and then in their articles or having bloggers on one of their segments. The Blackberry has been a tremendous tool for bloggers because it allows them to write and publish articles from anywhere. For example, if you were at Steve Job’s keynote speech yesterday, you could have give an up to the minute update to your blog readers.


This article will show you how to get setup with your own blog through Blogger.com and to set it up to accept blog posts via your Blackberry. We chose the Blogger.com software because it’s easy to use and you do not need to buy a domain or pay for hosting. You can create your own Blogger.com account in three easy steps, create your account, choose your blog name, and then choose a template.

After you created your blog, you now need to configure the The Mail-to-Blogger feature which allows you to email an article which automatically will be published on your blog. To post to your blog via email, you need to configure your Mail-to-Blogger email address in Settings -> Email. The format of the email address is username.secretword@blogger.com. Note that this email address must be kept secret. Otherwise, anyone who gets it will be able to post as you.

Also be sure to specify whether or not you prefer your email posts to publish automatically. If this option is not checked, then your posts will be saved on your account but will not appear on your blog until you log in to Blogger.com and publish them yourself.

Once you have saved your Settings, you can send email to your blog. The subjects of your email letters will be the titles of your posts, and the body of the emails will be the posts themselves. It’s that simple.

    Also, if you put #end in the body of your email it won’t post anything below that tag.

    So if your blackberry automatically appends the “Send from my Blackberry” or your company automatically appends something you can use #end so that it won’t actually post to your blog. Good for posting from your yahoo, hotmail, etc. account too.

    Thought that might be useful. :-)
