Microblogging Or Miniblogging

Posted by foreualways on December 13, 2011

Microblogging (<—-click to go to Wikipedia site)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Microblogging is a broadcast medium in the form of blogging. A microblog differs from a traditional blog in that its content is typically smaller in both actual and aggregate file size. Microblogs “allow users to exchange small elements of content such as short sentences, individual images, or video links”.[1]

As with traditional blogging, microbloggers post about topics ranging from the simple, such as “what I’m doing right now,” to the thematic, such as “sports cars.”[citation needed] Commercial microblogs also exist, to promote websites, services and/or products, and to promote collaborationwithin an organization.

Some microblogging services offer features such as privacy settings, which allow users to control who can read their microblogs, or alternative ways of publishing entries besides the web-based interface. These may include text messaging, instant messaging, E-mail, or digital audio.

Some websites that are microblogging are Twitter(<—shameless plug to follow me), tumblr, sms messaging, and Google + and Facebook status are a form of microblogging.

Now while I knew this for the most part, I considered blogging from my cell phone microblogging (or miniblogging) as well. The screen on my android certainly is mini compared to my laptop! Rolling on the floor laughing

Now I use the WordPress mobile app and I have to say I love it! No it doesn’t replace my WordPress on my computer, but it let me do microblogging (status updates) on the fly. I mean do I always have to blog a full size story, and do I always have to tweet everything (well yeah I kind of do, I have twitter fever) but still I like posting small things, thoughts of the moment, a cute or funny picture or video of something I find amusing!

So I’ve added 2 new categories,  ‘Microblogging’ and ‘Status Updates’ and when I blog from my phone those are the categories I will use.


The screen on your left is the first when posting, and to the right is with the onscreen keyboard. Center below is sideways same screen. Of course with a slide out keyboard or a bigger screen you will have more real estate on the screen. I currently have a 3.2 inch screen.

To your left this is the second part of the first screen. Access to all your categories and tags. Password is optional as well.


To your left you can see what comes up when you decide to add media and it works very nicely, well at least it does for me. I haven’t tried the video part yet! Now to the right these are your choices when your ready to post!

While you can certainly download this app from here at WordPress, you can also download it from a number of other sites for the Android phones you can get it from the Android Market. You can read the reviews and seeing a few other WordPress android apps as well!
Well I use Android Only and that what the screen shot are from. They have all the apps for the different mobile platforms at the links I mentioned above!
OK Have a great day and a excellent holiday!
