The first post from my Motorola V300!

Hello world!

I logged into Blogger this morning to see a posting on Blogger Buzz regarding Blogger Mobile - a new Blogger feature that allows you to create and update a blog with photos and text from your mobile device. And later found a post on the same topic by LazyGeek too. I decided to try the system and part of this post resulted.

That pic and the "Hello World!" text was posted from my cell phone a couple of mins ago! The pic is actually of me and my friends from my school days, taken a few days (if I remember right, our last group arattai session) before I came here to the US for the first time in 2001. During a nostalgic phase a couple of months ago, I decided to keep the pic as my cell phone wall paper. And today, posted it as my first mobile post!

I am officially a "Blogger on the Go"! And you, to become one, send to "go@blogger.com", whatever you want to post and follow the instructions that are given here! Thangamaaaannni Ennjjaaaaay!

(P.S The quality of the posted pic is rather poor given the poor maintenance that my V300 endures because of the "not too mobile savvy" me! And I am there in the pic! If you need any help, I am the guy sitting on the far left.)

Thennavan, ya. Very observant, you are. I did have more hair on my head then . Not for long though, because, only two days later, I did my usual "sadhura vatta sathukudi from thoothukudi" haircut!

Nice! Why are you looking away and slouching like a kid-who-din't-get-his-candy?

anantha said...

Gabby: Mebbe I did not get any candy! I love my candy and if I do not get any, I 'd be slouching for sure. Or mebbe that's my camera face ;)

anantha said...

Gabby: Btw, Don't I remind you of someone? I mean the you "who did not get a heavy breakfast on time"! lol...

thennavan has told that to make u happy anti...or some other ulterior motive ;)...plz check ur tulip foto...yaarukaavadhu therinja plz kaatunga :P

alpha said...

Anti, I think tulips bring out your personality. Stop taking pictures with other humans.

anantha said...

Alpha: Hrmmphhh! No comment for your posts from now on!

alpha said...

..thus spake Anti for the 10th time.

anantha said...

Alpha: Ya and I actually emulated Javed Akhtar decently enough, just a couple of mins ago :p

Hi first time here....

It would be good in future to hv this feature in a improved manner in all the mobiles..

Instant Blog message from the field, will make this blogworld more interesting & really competitive to other media.

anantha said...

True Ram, it is a good feature. But point is, I pay 5 cents for every text msg i send and I am not sure whether i'll keep doing this. Blog posts can wait, if I need to pay money to post!

GratisGab said...

Anti, time for new post da...post a pic if you're feeling lazy :)

anantha said...

I am indeed feeling lazy! But why do u want me to post pics? I have had enough of the pink tulip jokes! *Grrrr*

anantha said...

To think I almost fell for that request :P

GratisGab said...

again, you ARE cute :)

anantha said...

Gabby, pls do pass that opinion of yours to a couple of your single gal pals. Once they start frequenting this blog, me start heeding to every request of yours :p
