Unlimited Mobile Plans, A Blogging Essential
The popularity of mobile devices has exploded. Â Like lava out of a volcano, this hot stuff ain’t going back inside the mountain. Â Since we are all demanding more from our phones, mobile plans that offer unlimited data are a necessity. Â Especially for bloggers…
First, thereâ€™s the need for data. Â Several blogging apps I can’t live without.
EVERNOTE. Now you never have an excuse to forget an idea again! Â This easy-to-use app lets you type or use audio (voice recording/speech to text) to log your ever thought, to-do list or blog post idea. Â You can even upload photos. For me, this is the most useful blogging app because you can’t but a price on an idea. Evernote ensures I always have an idea repository to dip into when the going gets tough.
TUMBLR. Even if Tumblr is not your blogging platform of choice, I think it makes for a great secondary platform. Â I use the app exclusively to update my “fun” blogs and personal life events. Â Â If your posts are comprised of short text updates and heavy on the photos, Tumblr makes it a cinch to update your blog from most smartphones.
MOBILE GA. Stat junkies rejoice! Â If you’re on the go but dying to know if today’s blog post moved the traffic needle, you need Mobile GA – a simple app that works together with Google Analytics. Â Check out page totals, bounces and referring links from the palm on your hand.
There are so many apps out there, all of varying sizes, so as a blogger, it’s in your best interest to purchase mobile plans that give you unlimited data.
And don’t forget about voice…
Bloggers might be a relatively quiet bunch, but the cream of the crop never shy away from a phone conversation that can bolster their blog. Â Running a blog can be like living an entirely new life. Â You have your “real” job and “real” friends — but then you also have your blog job and blog friends. Â Before you blink an eye, you’ll run up that cell phone bill if you’re not careful â€“ especially when living â€œtwoâ€ lives.
Now if only someone would create a small battery that can withstand all of this multi-tasking!
