Mobile Blogging On the G1
I’m currently writing this on my G1, while waiting at a Jiffy Lube for my headlight to be fixed. Since this blog runs on WordPress, I decided to test one of two WordPress apps available from the Android Market.

Other options, too, are sparse–there’s a place to add pictures, and a dropdown which loads categories from the blog.
