18 Your readers want your updates as quickly as possible, and we think we provide the easiest and the most flexible publishing environment to make that happen. Sometimes though, that’s just not enough.
19
20 When you’re covering a fast-paced event — the latest Apple unveiling, an F1 Grand Prix, or the Super Bowl — a full blog post for each individual update is a poor experience for your authors and your audience.

22 The [WordPress.com VIP Liveblog Add-On](http://vip.wordpress.com/liveblog-add-on/) was purpose-built to address these issues specifically.

24 Here’s what makes it special:
25
26 * Post updates right from the front-end of your site (no need to use the `/wp-admin` dashboard)
27 * Viewers of your Liveblog get new entries served to them instantly and automatically, without needing to refresh their browser.
28 * Your authors can drag-and-drop photos right into the Liveblog area, without needing to navigate to separate browser tabs or windows.
29 * There’s no need for a separate site dedicated to liveblogging: *every* post can be a liveblog, even existing ones.
