Easier Blogging with WordPress on your Computer or Cellphone

Early this morning I discovered that WordPress has app’s for both my PC (Laptop) and my Cellphone that make it possible to more easily write posts from either.  Up to this point I have always been using a brower on  my computer to create and maintain posts.

As far as I can tell, it now looks like I can record a video (selfy or not) on my Cellphone and have it upload to my Blog.  I will be experimenting with that later but probably not today.

One of the questions I have for both the PC-based WordPress app and the Cellphone-based app is will they “work” (eg. record and save) posts, videos etc while I am not hooked up to a network and then upload them when I get connected to a WiFi (usually) network?  If the answer is yes, then I have the best of both worlds.  A couple of new, useful blogging tools and no need for always on digital network (cellphone modem basically) access.

My cellphone vendor is Republic Wireless who provides me with very low montlhly cost service by routing most of my calls through home, work or other Wifi access points. They do provide calling service and texting when I am not connected to Wifi.  When I am connected to Wifi I also have access to the Internet.  I get this service for $15/mo plus taxes.  For the way I use my cellphone, this is very nearly as convenient as a full service data plan at a much lower cost.  Republic Wireless also has full service data plans that you can change to on the fly.  You can change your plan twice a month, so you can tailor your plan to your current ussage.

When I was trying out driving for Uber, I changed to a 3 GB/mo full service data plan.  When I stopped driving for Uber, for the time being, I dropped back down to the Wifi only data plan.  Try them, you might like them 🙂

A baby-boomer with a long Technology-Geek history and a even longer career in non-Technology-Geek work (I took what I could get, when I could get it). Do you remember IBM punch cards? I do. I am working, semi-retired, moderately Senior Citizen with a need to not get bored. So I am considering the possible insanity of going to graduate school. If it happens, I expect to come out with an MA in Communications Study that will allow me to write better and speak about what I know better.
