Default Blackberry + Blogging?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking in to setting up some blogs for a few businesses and one thing I was looking into was the possibility of users being able to log in and post blogs from their blackberrys.

Does anyone currently blog from their blackberry? I tried testing out wordpress by setting up an account at wordpress.com and logging in from my 7250, but once I get past the log in page, the wordpress dashboard doesnt actually load. Instead a blank page just comes up. So I'm guessing this means it wont work with wordpress at all. Does anyone know of any blogging software that is blackberry friendly?

Oh I also tried using blogger.com and once you log in it tells you to enable cookies and javascript, so it doesnt work either.

I'm able to log into the WordPress dashboard using my T-Mobile 7290. The small screen makes it hard to navigate, but it does work.

WordPress also supports e-mail postings (in dashboard, go to Options/Writing to set it up). So even if you can't access the dashboard with your 7250, you could add new posts to your blog.

Wirelessly posted (7250/4.0.0.204: BlackBerry7250/4.0.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1)

Blogger also supports email posting. It is the simplest method that I have found to post from my BlackBerry.

I post to blogger via the HTML page using my 7100i with no problem. I know that it is possible to post via email for both Blogger and WordPress. Formatting is easy via email for both as well.

Posting to deadjournal.com (not a true blog, but close) is possible using the BB Browser on 7520 w/Nextel. WebViewer allows it, too, but imposes a 10,000 character limit. BB Browser does not.
