Well, in the course of poking around for new things at blogger.com, I found the audioblogger. Kind of interesting. I think this would work well for someone going on a trip to Slovakia or something, to send updates to the world from a telephone. You just dial a number, punch in your code, and say your post. Then it shows up on your blog. Neat, eh?

What I really wanted to get working was the posting photos directly from my phone to my blog. This would be an easy way for people who only use public computers to post photos too, but blogger thought that my pix message was spam for a number (6.7) of reasons. See:

Content analysis details: (6.7 points, 5.0 required)

pts rule name description
---- ---------------------- --------------------------------------------------
0.2 NO_REAL_NAME From: does not include a real name
0.5 FROM_ENDS_IN_NUMS From: ends in numbers
1.5 FROM_STARTS_WITH_NUMS From: starts with nums
0.2 EXTRA_MPART_TYPE Header has extraneous Content-type:...type= entry
1.5 RCVD_NUMERIC_HELO Received: contains an IP address used for HELO
1.2 PRIORITY_NO_NAME Message has priority, but no X-Mailer/User-Agent
1.6 MISSING_SUBJECT Missing Subject: header

Well, I sent them an email about it. I wonder if they'll get it working for us Verizon users.

Wow, that's neat!! I totally think that Jess should do that on her trip and Katie too when she moves. I think someone needs to make a singing blog. I wish I were more brave.

Yeah, I think we should buy her a phone card to call and leave messages. And that wouldn't be me who should start a singing blog.

Count me in for that--if we can make her promise to post, that is! And I think you are our best hope for a singing blog, unless Shannon will do it! Maybe Katie will--or Kenny P.O.T. That would be the coolest!
