If you haven’t already tried our post by email feature then it makes blog publishing as simple as sending an email. Configure your blog, write an email, and we’ll do the rest. You can add photos and videos in your email and they’ll all be included, regardless of whether you send them from your home computer, your office, or a cellphone.
Last month we introduced a great geotagging feature that allows you to identify where you’re located when writing a post. This has now been linked in with post by email so you can send a photo, via email, from any GPS-enabled device and we’ll use that information to automatically set the location of your blog post. If you have an iPhone, for example, then take a photo, email it, and you’re all set.
As we roll out more geotagging features you’ll be able to use this information to show friends where you’ve eaten, to show places you’ve visited on vacation, or if you’re forgetful, to remind yourself where you’ve been.
Naturally you may not want your location to be public and the geo information will only be used if your personal profile allows it. Additionally, you can include the
[geotag on] and
[geotag off] shortcodes in your email to override your profile defaults.
Full details of all post by email shortcodes can be found on the support page. This includes how to include category and tags.

That is pretty neat. I cannot wait for people to actually be knocking on my door. jk
Dec 21st at 8:18 pm
great for “travelling bloggers” I think…
Dec 21st at 8:53 pm
This is great like all other unique features on WP!
I have moved to self-hosting but I feel more at home here! I also feel .com blogs are more pampered! I am happy that I have about 12 active blogs on wordpress.com

thanks a lot for such useful improvements!!

This is a potential privacy bomb….!! Do we really need these features?? As a programmer its awesome to develop such utilities like geo tagging and etc, but it does give a chance for some big brother to watch over..! We have got stalkers running amok on web, it would have been more better if ye guys would have had included a delete comment feature..!!
Dec 22nd at 11:18 am
Very cool, while I may never have any use for this, I could see it being used by a organization to organize an event.
Dec 22nd at 5:16 pm
Great idea! Adds some fun to blogging.
Dec 23rd at 9:12 am
neat, liked the idea !

Struggling to find my way around wordpress as it is. Now something new! wow. I must not be from Planet Earth either.xxx
Dec 23rd at 11:41 am
It’s really great…
Dec 23rd at 2:37 pm
I love that you have included the short tag option to turn on and turn off this feature. My readers are constantly trying to find where I am around the world. It is like a where’s waldo of the blogging world. Based on this it would be fun to be able to alert people where I have been but have the option of maintaining my privacy! Well done WordPress!
Dec 23rd at 4:10 pm
I am going to give this a try when I am out on one of my “missions”.
Dec 23rd at 6:05 pm
Blogging from my cell phone – I like it.
Now I’ll be able to post play-by-plays in between red-lights on the way to and from my kids’ pre-school!
Dec 23rd at 8:48 pm
Thank’s – great stuff – if only I could figure everything out – there is so much to learn on how to use all the
“Buttons & Bows” on this site – I’ll struggle through it !
Dec 24th at 1:16 am
Ryan, thank you – I’ll do that, a little bit at a time.
Wishing you a “very white Christmas”

I love WordPress and all that all of you do and create at WordPress. Unfortunately, I have to echo the comment made by Harshad Joshi. It is a “privacy bomb.” One can easily say, “You are in full control over what information is published…” – but what people may not realize is how/why that info is being used, and the capability it offers for rigorous control. The ability to literally target people, who may protest against issues which have been blacked out in the MSM, will amount to censorship, and possibly worse.
Geolocation has been implemented across the web. We are facing an extinction as sure as that of the Dodo, and just as clueless. Many people ignore privacy issues, and just say “cool.” Must the naive, irresponsible “I have nothing to hide” – attitude assure that privacy and constitutional rights be obliterated?
WordPress.com must face the issue of new tech services and user rights carefully. The issue will not go away. I (currently) have faith in WordPress, that the people of WordPress are much smarter than that. I hope WordPress finds solutions, a path for protecting privacy and related rights, for all its devoted users.

I really like this feature and would gladly use it when writing blog entries while being on vacation somewhere. What I dislike though is the fact that when I tried entering my home town, which I wanted to be displayed, it displayed a radius showing my almost precise address, which I find somewhat creepy..
Unfortunately there are not only nice people on the internet..
I will play around with it some more and see if i somehow can change it from showing my direct address to showing my town only.
