If you want to make the short list for the Shorty Award for social media's best blogger, you almost have to be mobile. Blogging's not just nerds holed up with a laptop or clunky desktop anymore. Blogging in 2014 is done anywhere, anytime. You must stay connected to your audience like Shorty Award finalist blogger Sophia Abrahao does. She is always on Twitter and in constant contact with her fans and followers. This means, that bloggers need to take advantage of mobile blogging tools. Here are just a few suggestions:
For Capturing IdeasBloggers must create content by capturing ideas, trending news and whatever is going to be the next big thing. This requires taking a lot of notes. But, nobody's walking around with a pencil and notebook nowadays. They're more likely carrying the latest smartphone so they can take photos and use apps to capture their ideas and information to use in the next blog post.
For Publishing on the FlyBusy bloggers aren't in the office creating posts—they're out on the road, at the airport or train station or at the scene of the next big conference or event. They're not sitting at a desk with a computer. They are speaking ideas into their smartphones, rolling out folding keyboards and using their smartphones to publish posts in real time.
WordPress bloggers will want to use the official WordPress mobile app to publish their posts, check stats and monitor page views. This app lets users upload photos right into their posts, moderate comments, draft post ideas and manage multiple sites.
Once they have published their post, bloggers should update their social networks. Buffer, a social sharing scheduler, makes it easy for bloggers to update their social media accounts, especially if they have multiple accounts on the same platform. Buffer enables published posts to be auto-shared or advertised on a set schedule. Additionally, the MailChimp app allows bloggers to access their email lists.
For Using AudioWith audio apps you can publish podcasts, interviews and audio recordings.
