Mobile Blogging 2007
In the year or so since I did the end to end ride, it's become considerably easier to add blog entries that contain pictures. Last year, blogger.com couldn't accept pictures in entries sent to it by e-mail. As a result, it was necessary to e-mail blog entries first to Flickr, and then arrange for them to be sent on to blogger. Flickr held the pictures and inserted the appropriate HTML into the entries sent to blogger. This year, pictures in e-mails are accepted by blogger, so using Flickr is unnecessary. Unfortunately, GMail, which I'm using as my e-mail service, doesn't interpret HTML inline in e-mails correctly. So, it's not possible to add links to mail this year. Oh well, at least the process is simpler.
