Best blog platform on my phone?

I have used Blogger/Blogspot and WordPress on my computer. I've never been able to figure out how to post pictures directly on them from my phone (I email the pictures to myself, put them in a file on my desktop and then upload them from there). I have an Android and would love to blog and post pictures on the road.

You can upload directly from the camera on your phone, to your Wordpress blog, using your Android phone. There are different ways to do it, including selecting a photo in your Gallery, clicking the "share" icon, and selecting Wordpress. Another way is to start a new post, click on the +, and select a photo from your Gallery.

I realize my explanation is not very complete, but be assured that it is possible and you don't need to email the photos. If you put the Wordpress app on your phone and start playing around with it (and use Google and YouTube for help!) you will figure it out. It's a good idea to practice at home first.

Thanks, C Clearly. I am practicing with it now and figuring it out.

C Clearly, did you do a blog during your VDLP walk? I'd like to read it, if so.

I use blogger and you can request an email address you can send to post the blog for you. I have been doing that for all my caminos since blogged daily on the road. Easy and you don't need to install any app, just the email client.
1. To: field is the email to post to Blogger
2. Subject: field is the Blog post title.
3. Body: field is writing for the post
4. Attachment: field for the photo I'd taken from my phone camera will also go into the blog post

This seems to be the best way to blog for me since I can draft the email (blog post) offline and sent them when I can find wifi (or internet data from local SIM card).
I believe there should be a similar feature in Wordpress.
* Note for Blogger. I will limit to no more than 4 images in the email attachment as a couple of times 6 or more images didn't go through for me. It blog got posted but without the images. I suspect there is a limit to the size of the email for posting to blogger.

You can check out my blog from my profile. They are all posted via email.
