Mobile Blogging with the Live Blog Reporter App


In the modern media landscape audiences
expect news when it happens and live blogs are among the best ways to deliver
information quickly with our mobile blogging tool updating readers has never been easier I’m Greg from Sourcefabric and in this video I’m going to
demonstrate how to set up and use the Live Blog Reporter App which gives your blog writers the ability to file from anywhere We recently tested the app at a
pro-democracy demonstration in Prague to show you how convenient mobile live
blogging can be The first step is to install the reporter app on the mobile device you want to work from Search for Live Blog Reporter in the iOS or Google Play app stores Once you got the app on your device make sure you’re a
registered user and team member for the live blog you want to work on and if you need a Live Blog instance visit liveblog.pro to try a Live Blog for free once your account is up and
running the next step is to log into the App Next locate the blog you want to work on
from your organisation’s blog list you can only work on blogs that are bolded If a name is grayed out it means you don’t have access For this tutorial I’ll
walk you through how to post images and videos shot from your device to your
live blog timeline We’re using images and videos that Sourcefabric took in a
protest in Prague’s Letna Park in November 2019 when you
log into your live blog you’ll be directed to the editor pane by default if you want to post only text click the text icon and start typing we’re going to post an image along with
our text to do that click the image icon on the apps menu bar then select an
image from your device’s photo gallery now add a description and author
information finally save your work by clicking the check mark in the upper
right hand corner of the editor window if you want to add additional elements
to the post whether it’s text more images or videos click the plus sign
below the image you just uploaded once you’re happy with your post you can
either save it as a draft a helpful option if you are in an area with weak
internet connectivity submit it for editorial approval based on your
organisation’s workflow or publish it directly to your live blog finally you can also delete, unpublish or edit a post simply by clicking on it from the
Timeline view within the app and there you have it live blogging on-the-go is
