Because a few a-listers have carried over the topic of mobile blogging to their blogs I decided to join the bandwagon because first off, this was the question addressed to me and Marc Macalua after our talk at iBlog 3.
Moblogging or mobile blogging is very similar to wearing a scuba outfit while walking in the mall. No one’s prepared for that kind of thing yet. No one sees the obviously inherent value to mobile blogging at this point in time. Remember my analogy
As for the topic on moblogging as a platform for pornography, well this is really expected! Porn is everywhere! It’s on video, audio and print. It’s practically the epitome of social media at its best, though not in a moral sense. Wherever there is a chance for social contact, there will always be porn.
Also, blogging from your cellphone, unless it is a photo blog, will mitigate your journalist appeal because it will be so much harder to type out a whole paragraph using a numerical keypad.
On the other side of the coin, there is actually a very powerful advertising opportunity for mobile blogging. Because the cellphone has such a small screen, it will be easier to
confuse entice readers to click on advertisements because you would have to scroll down per block of text rather than navigate via mouse. The chances for you to click on ads are greater.
