For the past couple of years, there has been a huge amount of emphasis being placed on the mobile UX (User Experience) – and rightly so. The world has gone mobile with more people now accessing the Internet from mobile devices than on desktop PCs. Here is one thing many bloggers out there might not have thought of yet, but after this, you will surely be searching for those tools that enable you to be out and about while you blog to your heart’s content.

Do You Really Need the Statistics?

As a blogger who probably spends at least eight hours a day researching and writing, you know just how many people are actually using those mobile phones to do everything from order tonight’s dinner to shopping for grandma’s 80th birthday present, and everything in between. At any moment you are likely to see someone walking with their phone stretched out ahead of them as they seek the next Pokémon filling station or chatting happily away on Facebook. Do you really need the statistics? If so, you can get a fairly close estimate of just how many people are accessing the Internet from a mobile device on this site.

Marketing on the Fly

So you’ve been hired as a blogger to write content for a marketing agency that understands mobile media. They make it their goal to provide content that reads just as well on a cell phone as it does on a large plasma monitor and the message they ask you to focus on caters to a mobile market. Why don’t you personally look into some mobile apps that allow you to blog from a mobile device? Whether you are using a Windows phone, an Android or an iOS (Apple), you can easily open an app strictly for bloggers and type (or talk with speech recognition) to your heart’s content. Now that’s the ultimate in mobile marketing and marketing you can actually enjoy as a blogger!

The Best Apps for Bloggers

Some marketing firms employ full-time, in-house writers. One marketing agency, Single Grain, wants their staff to give 150% of their attention to the customer at hand. That is understandable and a really great way to do business. Bloggers, on the other hand, may be freelance and have the liberty to write what they want, when they want, and from where they want. If that’s you, check out these apps:

  1. Tumblr
  2. Blogger
  3. WordPress
  4. LiveJournal

All can be accessed from a desktop as well as from a mobile device. And if you have a Cloud based subscription to Office 360, you can write and store all your documents in the Cloud so that you can open them and edit at any time. This just adds a bit of fun for bloggers who often see things they’d like to remember to blog about later, but by the time they’re back at their computers, there’s nothing left of that idea but a faint whisper somewhere in the back of their head that drives them completely nuts. If you are a consummate blogger, why not go mobile? As the saying goes, you can have your cake and eat it too.
