    Are you able to Update via SMS or Email? thank you

    The blog I need help with is danheinz.wordpress.com.



    by ‘update’, do you mean ‘post’ to your blog?



    And we’d need a link to your blog, starting with http, in order to answer appropriately.



    I’d like to know this too. I want to start a blog for my Japanese university students and would love to have a simple email address for them to send posts to the blog from their cell phones. I was planning to use tumblr, but it’s not that stable…..



    Please post the url for your free hosted wordpress.COM blog starting with http:// so we can begin to try to help you. If you have downloaded free software from wordpress.ORG and are self hosting then you are in the wrong forum. The correct one in that case is http://wordpress.ORG/support
    This sticky post at the head of our wordpress.COM forum explains the differences between the two https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-read-me-first-before-posting?replies=1



    http://danheinz.wordpress.com. yes i mean post to my blog via sms or email. for example i create an email and the subject is the blog subject and the body is the actual blog



    edit: i have mobile www access but I prefer the ease of use of just creating an email on my phone and sending it. or from any email client for that matter. great way to kill the time at work ;)


    can I be helped as well…I want to able to “post” new blogs by sending an email with the post content..

    my blog address is: http://iwgsowhat.wordpress.com

    thank you

    OK everyone

    go to http://posterous.com/

    at the top right choose “Login”…when the screen loads..setup a new account (you can choose a random username since no one will ever see the Posterous blog that you are creating)

    Once you confirmed ur email account..choose “manage” at the top right…when the page loads..scroll down and on the right side a little while down the page you will see a link that reads “Auto Post to Everywhere”

    At this page choose “Add a Service”..choose “More Blogs”…choose the wordpress blog…fill out all the information..and youre up and running!!

    To continue posting, just email (email redacted) (the email subject will be your blog title..and the content will be the content..lol)

    Hope this helps!

    Glad to hear it works!


    …and it works perfectly guys!

    I am currently using this technique and if you add pictures to your email attachments, the pictures are then posted in your blog posts!



    anyone have any other methods? is there a wordpress method? not a third party website?
