How to Create a Free Mobile Photoblog on WordPress.com

With the recent Instagram terms of service changes, I’ve had several people ask me how to create a mobile photoblog here on WordPress.com, since I use it for my own mobile photoblog.

It’s pretty easy. Here’s what you do, with appropriate links. You’ll be reading this to publishing on your mobile photoblog in the next five minutes!

  1. Create a blog on WordPress.com (free!)
  2. Choose one of the 220+ themes available on WordPress.com (Dashboard > Appearance > Themes). Many were designed with photography in mind, and the overwhelming majority are free!
  3. Install one of the free 6 mobile apps for WordPress and connect your WordPress.com blog to your phone.
  4. From your mobile, snap a picture, and Publish! Done!

To keep going…

  1. Activate Publicize to automatically share each post with social networks like Twitter or Facebook right when you publish (free!)  – (Dashboard > Settings > Sharing).
  2. Add Sharing Buttons (free!) so people can share your post with their favorite sharing tool or social network (Dashboard > Settings > Sharing).
  3. Add a Custom Domain if you want to have something like yourgroovydomain.com on top of your site (Dashboard > Store > Domains).

You can do a lot more with your WordPress.com site, but now you’ve set it up, you’ve connected it, and you’ve given your readers a way to share! You’re good to go. 🙂

And you can visit my mobile photoblog, too – sararosso.wordpress.com. If you’re following me on Twitter, you’re sure to see those pictures, too.

California in November...or...don’t throw crackers at a peacock to get it to go away. 😂 Run, don’t walk: @traderjoes now has “Stelle di Notte” aka Pan di Stelle aka delicious iconic cookies from Italy (and made there too, from the label). #pandistelle #Italy Solo coffee trip means the diaper bag can stay at home and my used-to-be-everyday Furla purse can come out. 😂 #thatmomlifetho #espresso #cortado A look inside The Artful Baker by @cafefernando on my IG Story today! One of the most gorgeous cookbooks I’ve ever seen, and I even get a shout out inside! Can’t wait to start baking from it. #notsponsored #talentedfriends Testing chocolate… Only because I have to! “Have to“ because my beloved Fireworks chocolate is out of season right now. Although I can always get one from Chuao, Trader Joe’s makes a comparable bar for less than half the price. So far the dark chocolate caramel bar and the cold brew bars are tasty! #notanAd #IWish :) Meal planning is the only reason I don’t eat out every night of the week right now with a newborn. Here are my tips and tricks for How I Meal Plan. Link in profile and http://www.msadventuresinitaly.com/blog/2017/10/02/how-i-meal-plan-tips-and-advice/
