Easier access is not exactly better.

I tried mobile blogging, (see below.) I don't think I've found it to my taste quite yet.

In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, Blogger has made Mobile blogging available. You can send a text message from your phone directly to your blog, and you don't need to log in on a computer somewhere to access your blog. So now, I can write a blog entry where ever I am. As long as I have cell service, which isn't always the case.

I tried it out this afternoon. It (obviously) didn't work too well for me. Maybe I just haven't found the right way to use it yet.

I am not good at texting. And anyway, my long post broke itself up into two text messages, which is very confusing.

I guess I'm not good at being concise. (See? I'm not being concise right now, am I?)

So, easier access. Could be good, could be bad. On the one hand, if I'm out somewhere, sitting around with nothing to do, I could use the time to post on my blog. But that's assuming I am every out somewhere with nothing to do. And I (personally) can't text when I'm sitting in traffic, or even when I'm standing in line at the grocery store.

And that's also assuming that I have something interesting to say. Which certainly isn't usually the case.

Well, we'll see.

lol. you're funny.
once you get used to texting, your fingers will dance across the keys of your cellphone like chickens finding seed.
maybe faster than your mind can keep up with.

Not better, but more. And more is... just more.

Seraphine... maybe, but I doubt I get enough practice for that to ever happen. I can feel old age making me resistant to new technology.

Teacher... Exactly, that's it :)
