There’s nothing stopping you from using your smartphone to provide a base for some of your visual content, but you have to be careful about it.

One of the ways that you can ensure that the content is going to be shared is to use a healthy dose of humor. Other than that, just make sure that what you are putting on your blog is unique and that the content contains value added content.
