Help! This time is moblogging

Stephen Baker

My next assignment is a story telling readers how to be mobloggers. Any suggestions you can send along are welcome. I haven't given it much study yet, but as of now, have no idea where to start.

Also, just an email from Hoder, the Iranian blogger we mentioned (all too briefly) in the BW cover story. He's going back to Iran and is looking for blogger support.

I would only ask that the focus be on the aspects of so-called moblogging that relate to delivering value to businesses, either enhancing revenue, reducing or managing costs, acquiring new customers, or delivering higher quality to customers.

Anybody who simply wants to know what so-called moblogging is can simple visit the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moblog, and its links to further detail or examples.

And if you don't like what you read in the wiki for moblog, guess what... you or *anybody* is free to edit the content of the wiki yourself.

Incidentally, that should be the generic answer to *any* question of the form "where to start", regardless of the topic. Wikipedia first, then google (where "google" is the *generic* term for using any search engine, whether it be the Google brand or not.)

Thanks for the links, Jack. I'll have a look. As far as the article goes, bad news: It'll have virtually nothing to do with moblogging for business. More of a how-to.

Howard Rheingold wrote about moblogging in 2002 in his book, Smart Mobs. It has a blog at http://www.smartmobs.com/

He is fascinating.

rheingold is brilliant when it comes to mobile lifestyle and mobility, and therefore can give you oodles of info on blogging from mobiles.

you could also contact christian lindholm (www.christianlindholm.com) or me - we were part of the lifeblog team at nokia and are quite deep into the whole consumer mobile blogging thang.

tchau,

charlie

Check out Anina (www.anina.net). She's a moblogger to boot and would probably be able to provide some pretty interesting insight.
