Most people use Blogger because it’s one of the most popular blogging platforms that doesn’t charge for anything. You can set up your blog in just a few minutes and start sharing your words with the world. It is very easy to write and post new posts on your Blogger site from your computer.
During the day, we don’t have a computer with us all the time, but we always have our phones. Then think about how cool it would be to write posts on a blog from your Android phone. It would save you a lot of time and let you write blogs wherever you are.
Blogger has its app for Android, but it doesn’t have a lot of things that other apps have. Later, we’ll talk about how to post blog posts on Blogger from your Android phone. First, let’s talk about different ways you can do this. Using these methods, you can also change the HTML of your posts and add meta descriptions and custom URLs.
1. Use the desktop version of Blogger.
If you want to write a new post on your Android phone, you can use the Blogger desktop website. You don’t need to download an app to do this. All you need to do is open any web browser and go to the Blogger site. We will tell you to use Google Chrome because it has a good user experience.
When you’re done, sign in to Blogger with your Google account to finish. The desktop version of the Blogger website will be the one you see when you first visit the site. Then go to the menu (click three dots at the top-right corner) and choose Desktop site.
To write a new post, choose the Blog in the top-right corner and click the New Post button. It takes you to the page where you can write and change your position on a computer or PC like you normally do.
Most people don’t like this method because their web page is messed up. After all, it will look very small to them. Why does this happen? Because the desktop version of the site doesn’t work with your phone’s screen size, you can zoom in on the page to see more clearly what is on the screen.
We can now talk about the good things about this method. It lets you make posts to create exactly how you want them. You can add images, videos, a permalink, meta descriptions, tags, and many other things to your Blog. In addition, you can switch to the HTML editor to change the HTML parts of your post, as well as the text.
2. Use the Blog it! App to post your blog posts on Blogger.
Blog it! A third-party app for Android lets you post to Blogger from your phone. You can use it to write new posts. In the Google Play Store, this app is free. The app will ask you to choose your Google account as soon as you open it.
After that, you have to give the app permission to look at your blogs on Blogger to work. Blog it! It gives you the best experience when writing blog posts on your phone. Everything can be changed to your liking. Let’s talk about what it can do.
Key parts of the app:
- It has a screen size that is compatible with your phone to write posts on it easily.
- There are many things you can do in the post editor, like adding bullet points, lines, blockquotes, links, bold text, and more.
- The images can be uploaded right away.
- It also has a way to make HTML posts. Open it by clicking the three dots at the top-right of the post editor. Then click Edit HTML.
- You can set a time for your posts to go live.
- You can save some of your posts as draughts.
- The app lets you look at your Blog’s comments and some basic stats, too.
The app has some limitations that it can’t do.
If this app has many features, there are a few things that it can’t do. Limitation: It doesn’t let you set up your link and meta description for your post. Soon, we hope that this app will do these things, too. The Blogger desktop website can now be used on your Android phone to change your posts’ permalink and meta description.
Blogger has a built-in app, but we don’t like it.
This is the official app for Blogger. Now let’s talk about that. If you’ve ever used it on your Android phone, you might agree that it’s a waste of space. Because it is the official app for Blogger, it should have all the features you need to use it well because the bad news is that it doesn’t even have basic features like an HTML editor, a post scheduler, an option to change the URL, or a meta description.
It looks like Blogger doesn’t want to keep the app up to date, but many people want to use Blogger on their phones. Many people would be very happy if Blogger added all the features that people need to its app. To avoid using a third-party app, you don’t need to Blog it! But we still think it’s worth having.
As far as I know, that’s all you need to know about this lesson! Please tell us if we can help you figure out how to post to your Blog on Blogger from an Android phone. Don’t forget to write them down in the comment box below if you have any questions! It’s good to write.
