Have you ever thought that you’ll be able to do blogging from the Google Glass? Don’t get surprised by the question, Few months back Google launched the Google Glass – a SmartGlass which is able to capture what you see and do many other smart tasks.
Well, the PR agency Weber Shandwick makes Blogging possible by developing a plugin named wpForGlass which enables the person to publish images and videos immediately to their self-hosted WordPress blogs as soon as they are captured.
How to use the wpForGlass plugin in Google Glass?
 
Well before using the plugin on the Google Glass you’ll first have to install the plugin on your Blog. Installing the plugin would have been difficult if the tutorial would not have been written at the official blog.
The tutorial has all the steps which should be followed by you to install the plugin so that you can use the plugin with your Google Glass.
How will the photo/video you upload by Google Glass go to your self-hosted WordPress blog?
 
 
First you will capture a photo/video from the Glass then share the media with the contact card which the wpForGlass plugin sets up for your blog, then if you wish you can add a caption for the media file you are uploading else leave it, the media will get uploaded to the Google Servers and from there they’ll be shifted to your Blog.

Everything have some or the other limitation, same is with the plugin. Using the plugin you will be able to upload the media to your self-hosted WordPress blog but there are some limitations of this plugin also they are :-
◆ To write a Blog post for the media uploaded, which is not liked by many of the Bloggers.
◆ To add title to the media uploaded,  media will be uploaded to the blog directly in the form of a blog post and a blog post without a title is not preferable.
Changes to be expected in the next updates
 
The limitations of wpForGlass plugin were discussed above, and one of the commentors made a comment on the installation page of the plugin
