Official Android Blogger App

Google has released an official Blogger app for Android devices.  You can save an idea as a draft (I have a dozen or so posts in draft form at any given time), post photos from your phone's camera, or browse your blogs' existing content.  (A blog is, after all, a content management system.)

More fonts for Blogger!

Blogger has just announced that they're making more fonts - a total of 77 - available to Blogger blogs.  The source is Google Fonts.  There are some really odd ones ... it'd be fun to type in Old English calligraphy, but I don't recommend it for long posts!

New feature on Blogger: control your partial RSS feeds

Some bloggers send the whole content of every post to their RSS feeds, but many choose to send only the beginning of each post, so that readers will click through. Blogger now allows you to choose, on a post-by-post basis, how much of the beginning of your post to put into the RSS feed. The new feature is called a "Jump Break".…

I can't imagine what you mean by that. We take ourselves very seriously here. We're going to define the one true unifying theory of physics through blogging. We'll develop biodegradable polymers that keep your soda fizzy until it's empty. We'll develop methods to defy gravity..via our perky prose.

And Susie says we can get Moose rings so we can be as cool and hip as the Masons.

Indeed. I suspect doing so will require us to create some sort of secret handshake.

Handy tool: Page2RSS

I've just discovered a handy tool: page2rss.com will create an RSS feed you can subscribe to in Google Reader, even if the web site that publishes the page doesn't offer a feed of its own.Here's an example. The Cleveland Wine School, now the American Wine School, is run by Marianne Frantz, a terrific wine educator. In addition to her educational efforts, she runs the Cellar Door, a wine tasting room that serves prix…See More

Improved comment handling in Blogger

There's more good news from the Blogger team at Google: the comments system has been completely overhauled.My biggest complaint with using Blogger as a blogging platform has always been comment moderation. My choices were to allow any anonymous schmuck to comment (spam magnet!), approve comments one by one until people register, or basically not allow comments at all. What I really wanted was to let anybody…See More

Alternate Venues: portable hotspot?

One of the things we'd like to talk about at next Monday's Moose meeting is alternate venues. We love the Spider, but it'd be nice to have some variety. It would open up a lot of options to us if we could bring our own wifi.Does anyone have a tetherable smartphone (e.g. my wife's Droid) and a laptop? Here's a link describing how to use your laptop's wifi to broadcast, rather than receive, and create your own wifi hotspot.…See More
