Thanks for all of your nice comments on yesterday's post.
A lot of you mentioned on how impressed you were that I was able to do this from my phone, so I thought I would tell you how I did it. Believe me I am not a technology wiz, so if I can do it, you can too. Having the right phone helps.

The phone is an iPhone that my husband gave me for Christmas. (Such a fun toy, BTW.)

After taking the photos, I went to my Flickr account and uploaded them. Flickr gives you a dedicated e-mail address to send them to for uploading from a cell phone.

Once the photos were uploaded, I chose the "Blog This" option above the photo. At an earlier time I had set this option on my Flickr account so that it has my blog URL. The "Blog This" option gives you a nice little text box to write in.

This post is done the same way, except I am in the comfort of my own home, using "Blog This" on my laptop.

The only issues I have with blogging this way is I can't figure out a way to post more than one photo. Also, there is no spell check (Something that I rely on heavily!)

The photo above was taken just before the train in yesterday's post rumbled into the station. I love the depth of the station in this one, and the fact that my sweet girl is giving me the exact same "enough already, mom" look.

Look for a second post today. I'm going to post the Beret recipe from the hat I made my daughter for Christmas.

when using a photo from flickr for your blog, don't use the blogging feature in flickr.

instead use "all sizes" feature. click on the size you want, then scroll down the page, and it'll give you the code for inserting the photo into a blog post. you can add as many photos this way as you want.

hope that helps

I really like the fist picture with the movement of the train in the background. It is a story waiting to be told. The one you posted today is good as well, but in a totally different way. The first one is the better picture, in my opinion.

note to self: ask hubby for i-phone for birthday gift.

My hubby got me an iPhone for Christmas too (I think he was tired of me swiping his!) I never thought to blog from it. I loves it!

You can add more photos by going to that photo (in another window or tab) in Flickr, then choosing "All Sizes" and then picking a reasonably small one for the blog, and below it gives the html code. Just put that in with the text. I usually leave a blank line before and after it and it's okay, especially if it's at the bottom. I don't know if typepad usually gives you better control over photo placement, but this works for me in Blogger (and Blogger doesn't have particularly good photo placement anyway). Photos added this way will not include the "Uploaded by username" caption.
