Where do I find the time? On the go of course
I plan to start posting regularly on the go from my various Nokia devices since my time to dedicate to blogging is limited. I found a couple of tools that look like they will get the job done during my 45 minutes morning and evening train commutes and at other times when I have a few minutes to spare. For S60 there is the Wordmobi tool and for the Internet Tablet there is WordPy .
I have a day job and then a night job with coaching, cheering, and spending time with my wife and 3 daughters. I have tried and joked about not sleeping, but I am not a vampire and really do need to get a couple hours of sleep. So to keep up with some fresh content I needed to find a way to blog on the go and think these couple tools should work fine.
There are a couple odd UI things where you have to select the right soft key in Wordmobi that shows up as Exit even when Done or OK is what is meant. I have tried various iterations and it gets better all the time and it is free so you can’t really complain.
I wrote and posted this entry on my E71 (seemed to stick in Draft mode though) using Wordmobi. Remember you will need to install Python first to use this free utility too. I actually composed the post in the included Notes program because I didn’t want to chance losing what I wrote. With copy and paste supported on S60 this is not an issue. I also took the photo of my train with the Nokia 5800 and emailed it to my E71.
I need to figure out why they are getting stuck in Draft form and also work on editing the photos to a smaller size before my next On The Go post.
Do you post from your device? If so, what tools work for you?

I just purchased a license for Telewaving Wavelog because it successfully published my posts and seems more feature packed. I like the HTML capability and ability to save posts on the device as you write them.
