Blogging Via Google Glass? Yep, New Plugin Makes It Possible

wordpress-google-glassDon’t be surprised if Marketing Land’s coverage of next year’s Google I/O conference, or perhaps coverage of our upcoming SMX West conference, involves some live blogging … from Google Glass.

Yep. There’s a new WordPress plugin that makes it possible to shoot photos and video on Google Glass and publish them almost immediately to a self-hosted WordPress blog. (Videos take a little longer to process and publish.)

It’s called wpForGlass, and it’s an open-source project from the PR agency Weber Shandwick.

Installing the plugin requires a little work, but once it’s setup, Glass users will have a new sharing card for their blog, and any photo or video taken with Glass can be “shared” to the blog that way.

There are some limitations, but that’s to be expected with such a new technology. There’s currently no way to speak a blog post via Glass and publish a text-based article — the publishing process begins with a photo or video, as you can see above. You can, however, speak a caption to go along with the photo or video and include that with the published media.

Since the plugin is built for publishing photos and/or videos, Weber Shandwick suggests that it’s best suited for media coverage and liveblogging events. But really, any photo- or video-blogger with Glass could find plenty of uses for a plugin like this.
