To participate in 23 Mobile Things, each participant needs a blog. In the blog you will write posts about each Thing you do, what you learned, and how you could use the concepts or apps in your work or for yourself.
If you already have a blog you can register it, but when you write posts for this program please include “23 Mobile Things” and the number of the Thing you’re doing somewhere in the title of the post. This is just so it’s easier for us to find each post.
If you do not have a blog, there are several free blogging platforms and you can choose whichever you’d like. Here are a couple suggestions and getting started tips for two different platforms.
Tumblr is a free, short-form blogging platform. It is fast-growing and popular with teens and college-aged users. It is owned by Yahoo. Tumblr is media heavy in that they make it easy for users to post multimedia content to their posts. You don’t have to include media, but if you look at other Tumblr accounts you’ll see a lot of gifs, images, and videos.
Blogger is Google’s free blogging platform, so if you already have a Google account you can sign into Blogger with that same account. Blogger has been around since the early days of the web, so it was one of the most recognizable names in free blogging platforms.
