Now there's no excuse for starting that blog. This software allows you to create entries on your Palm (Windows only it appears :-( )

Just for the record, I believe there's already an AvantGo Blogger client that works cross-platform. Haven't tried it though. I'd bet there are others; I remember having some luck with the one that Eamon Daly made a while back (which Josh mentions on his site) as well...

There was also a Palm VII client for Blogger that never got past beta, and there's a version of Blogger designed for any kind of wireless access.

There has also been some discussion on using AvantGo to post to a Greymatter weblog. Unfortunately, your password for your weblog is not encrypted, but it does work quite well.

Am I the only one amused by Taken's unintentional ellipsis? I've been running a weblog for almost two years, and I still don't have an excuse.

Dan, I caught it, too. Makes me feel better for not having an excuse for stopping my blog. And you...?

Who says it was unintentional? -g

When I went to "about" on the menu of the handx software it crashed my palm. Bad, bad alpha!

Kind of cool, but I'm thinking that the actual written text in blogs is going to really shrink if they all start getting written on PDAs.

LiveJournal has released a client for PalmOS that is supposed to be really good... haven't used it yet.

Current features include:

- Multi-user and multi-journal mode
- Custom moods for any entry
- MD5 hashed passwords for enhanced security
- Support for NetLib, INetLib, and HotSync

Perhaps more blogs would benifit by taking the novella approach. Short, sweet, to the point - and they could be viewed on other PDAs. Small content for small devices.
