How to Live Blog via SMS

Last Updated: Dec 05, 2013 04:02PM PST
In addition to using the Wordpress interface to make a live blog post, you can post to a live blog post via SMS from your phone.  Keep in mind that any messaging fees from your phone provider will apply to this method.  Before you can live post via SMS, however, you need to properly set up your Wordpress user account.  Once you have done that, you are ready to live blog via SMS.
