Mobile WordPress.com

Behold, m.wordpress.com.

We’ve created a version of WordPress.com that is super-light — no images, CSS, or any other styling. So far we’ve found this to be very useful for blogging from mobile devices with a browser like a Treo or Blackberry, and it’s also pretty snappy when you’re on a slow connection like dial-up.

So type m.wordpress.com into your phone, PDA, or 486 PC and get your stats, blog, and link.

We’re aiming to keep this mobile version of WP.com pretty simple, but if you have any ideas for it please let us know in the comments.

    I especially like the bookmarking feature, because it is so easy to add to my blogroll!

    This is excellent.

    What else is great, is the ability to jot something down, and save it as a draft, to edit later in the regular editor. I get many ideas all the time, but I don’t always blog about all of them, because it takes me too long to open the editor, then save the draft, etc. I like this a lot.

    Thanks guys! 8)

    Nifty! Can it also count or most recent or to-be-moderated comments?

    Trying the “sandwich technique” here…

    Cool. I like the new mobile version. Same thing that I picked up earlier to use via Live.com.

    I’m wondering if there is any thoughts about how to make our blogs look good via mobile devices. About the only advantage that MSN’s Spaces has is that it has a decent look when viewed from a Smartphone or PDA, etc. The full blog isn’t there, but the posts and pictures are very easy to view. Something like that would be great to have our regular blogs just show up ok on small devices.

    Keep innovating. I’m loving the progress and new things as they come out. That’s why I switched over my main blog from LiveJournal and didn’t go with MSN Spaces either. You guys are doing it right! Nice work.

    I have been using for a few days … noticed it was there after you offerred the Live widget. It is slick, and very handy.
    I don’t know if its possible, but it would be handy to be able to edit posts from this screen in my blackberry.

    I guess you should check out the blog tools of Flock browser. It is somewhat complete and easy to use: categories, tags and even a ping to your favorite technorati and what have you.

    Why simply don’t use http://namewordpress.com/wp-admin/sidebar.php ? This is the way to add categories also.

    I really wish this was available for self hosted wordpress blogs. Hopefully they may implement it in version 2.1 failing that maybe someone can create a plugin for it.
