Is Mobile Blogging Here To Stay?

Do you blog? I’m not talking about tweeting or facebooking, I’m talking about writing articles that include rich media as well as plenty of text. If you use WordPress and typically post blog articles by using a desktop or laptop… you’re apparently not hip.

That’s because WordPress has just announced that more than one million people are currently using their mobile app to blog. (This includes iPhone, Android, Nokia and other WordPress apps.)

The first WordPress mobile app was built for iPhone in 2008. Since then, the company has launched BlackBerry and Android apps for WordPress blogging on the go. It’s even allowed for posting via SMS and phone-in, voice-to-text blog posting.

But reaching 1 million users is just the beginning; the makers of WordPress plan to continue expanding the platform’s mobile site. That expansion continues today with Nokia. The WordPress app first appeared in the Nokia Ovi store a few days ago, but WordPress is announcing its official launch today.

WordPress mobile staffer Isaac Keyet wrote on the WordPress blog today:

“We’ve made sure the Nokia app has everything you love about WordPress on any other mobile device… You can, of course, write and edit posts and pages, manage your comments queue and keep an eye on your blog’s statistics while on the move.

“If a seagull just snatched your hot dog and is making a run for it, you can snap a picture of the commotion or even record a video describing how it felt and how much you’re suing for. All from within the app.”
