Email Posting is Possible in Blogger



I know that I have been neglecting this blog for quite some time and there are many reasons why. Aside from the fact that I have been so busy with so many other things, another thing that kept me from updating my blog is the problem I encountered with blogger.

 

I was unable to post in blogger lately because whenever I click the create new post link, I would be directed to the posting page but gets an error message about a javascript void error. For some reason, I can’t type a thing in the body section. All I get is a loading image that keeps on rotating, it’s so frustrating.

 

I thought it was a javacscript error so I updated my java and made sure that the java options in my pc is turned on. I did all that but I still can’t post. By the way that error is only present in my desktop at the office. In any other pc, my blogger is fine.

 

I researched this problem in google so I know that I am not the only one that had experienced this. Well, nothing of the suggested solutions I tried work. So I gave up ad just look for other ways to post in my blog using that particular desktop.

 

It’s a good thing that blogger now allows blog posting through email or mobile. What I tried is the email posting. I can say that it is indeed convenient because I just setup a secret password for the email address I am going to use for blogging .


Then using that email address, I post the content in my compose section. The subject of my email is the post title. Upon pressing send- my post is immediately published on my blog. I find it very helpful but there are downsides too. For one there would be times when my blog posts would be all caps in the live post. I also cannot add labels on my post through email nor schedule a post. Anyway I am still grateful that they offer this option, I just hope it would improve in time. Here’s what blogger says about this helpful feature;

 

Blogger has many additional ways for you to post to your blog. You can post to your blog from your mobile phone or through a secret Mail-to-Blogger email address. Or use the Blogger Post Gadget to edit and publish posts directly from your custom iGoogle homepage. With these options, it's easy to post to your blog whenever you want, from wherever you may be.
