Wind back ten years and doing mobile blogging was something a few people did, a largely experimental activity trying out different services. Twitter, lots of free wi-fi, 3G and 4G, Instagram etc & etc have created a world of on the move messaging.

In 2003 i wrote a short article called "Blogging on a Bus Ticket" - an account of a day trip to the city centre and blogging using wap, sms, audioblog, and internet access points.
It was a "Blogspedition". That's what i called it. The term never caught on. I revisited the project in 2005 noting how things had moved on. Posting video was always the most difficult.

So a decade later I'm going out again. Mobile phone charged, cash in pocket and eye for opportunity and experiments. Is anything new possible when everyone can post from wherever they find themselves?
