After seeing AktoMan's mobile blogging from his West Highland Way walk, I though I like to do this when on my walks.
For some reason I could not get the email-to-blogger set-up, the SMS messages would be sent but never arrive at the blog. In the end I gave up as I seemed to be getting nowhere.
In the past week, I`ve started looking again but this time through SMS gateways but after quite a few attempts with different gateways which didn't work or left a lot of advertising on the message, I was finally about to give up completely until I found Mobile Blogger.
Mobile Blogger is a small Java program that is downloaded to your mobile phone and allows you to send messages to your blog (Yay!!!)
I`ve sent a couple of test messages which have appeared, and I also sent the first part of the 'handyseal' post this way.
I`ll contiune to post messages this way and also see how big a message I can post, plus how much it's costing.
It looks like a stapler and needs 2xAA batteries to run it, the black cover is folded down and the bag is placed in the gap then pressure is applied and the sealer is dragged along the bag to make the seal.
The company`s website is http://www.jmldirect.com/product.php?cid=5&pid=123 and has a video showing how it works.
It can be bought in Woolworths for £4.99
