ShoZu Destination of The Week: TypePad

As part of MIR’s ShoZu campaign, I’ve decided to pick out a few photo and video destinations that catch my attention in our inaugural ShoZu Destination of The Week feature.

This week? TypePad.

An excellent blogging platform, TypePad was the home to our very first mobile site — SMS Text News. For a good year or so, we relied on TypePad to bring you the news and opinions thick and fast.

Now and again I can remember using the ShoZu Typepad destination to send photos directly on to the site. In the early years, this sort of thing was priceless and, to be frank, a bit of magic. I used to sit in front of folk and — as my party trick — show them me taking a photo on my handset and then refreshing the blog displaying it. Oh the joy!

TypePad is used by a ton of companies — not least Nokia Conversations. And way back on the 4th of April 2006, it was the blog platform of choice for SMS Text News (we started the site on the 26th of January 2006).

Here’s a bit from the press release:

ShoZu, the market’s smartest one-click image sharing solution for camera phones, today announced new features making it the first service to offer photo and video uploading to multiple personal blog and citizen photo-journalism sites such as Blogger, Typepad, WordPress, CNN, the BBC and Scoopt.

Heh. 2.5 years ago! Get in! The release is here.
