Bloggers can develop value-added premium SMS services while still keeping their blogs open and free. For example a system could be developed that would allow readers to receive SMS alerts each time a new comment has been added to a particularly compelling blog post. They would text a post’s ID to the blogger’s SMS short code as a way to subscribe to comments via SMS. The SMS message could provide the title, author, some of the text, and a link to view the entire post on a WAP page. The blogger could charge $1.99 for this service per post or $4.99 per month for access to comments alerts on all of their posts as well as WAP page versions of the posts themselves.
