    Mobile Blog

    One of my friends is cycling the circumference of France in a months time and wants to set up a blog so he can update it to let people know where he is and that he is safe!! What online blog site is good?? Ive never used one so am completely clueless!!

    Ive found tumblr and hes found posterous which he can update via txt which is quite a good idea. He has a BB Bold and BB Playbook and all McDonalds have free wifi in france so will use these where possible (not to eat in though!).

    Any feedback on these two would be great as would other suggestions.

    Cheers.

    But is there a WordPress app for BB? Or does the Playbook finally support Android apps?

    For wordpress you need to install and create a website etc. he just wants an online one that he can use.

    Not quite true. WordPress.com — Get a Free Blog Here will host your blog. Wordpress is definetley the best blogging software, but perhaps in this case, posterous might be better due to those texts?

    I'm surprised he's not just using facebook though to be honest.

    Fair enough, I've only been on facebook a year, not a fan really. My girlfriend won't let me leave, but I hardly ever update it now.

    The other option is Twitter Most people tweet when they haven't got enough to blog about (all mine are heavenly little chunks of grammatically perfect text though obviously)! You'll probably find he updates it more regularly.
