Google SMS Channel
This is another product from Google Labs. You can create your own channel(s) to receive regular alerts over SMS on specific topics that interest you. You can also invite others to subscribe to your channel(s). You can use your channel(s) as a discussion group as well, allowing other people to post messages.
The main advantage is that you can use this channel to alert your readers when a new post is published in your blog. You need not take any effort for this. Google automatically do this. Only thing is that at the time of creation you need to provide your blog's address. You can also use this to provide alert from your google groups, Google news or from a RSS feed as shown in the figure. Also you(channel owner) can post messages manually. You can click here to start your own SMS channel.
