Blogging while traveling

I have a new found respect and appreciation for people that blog while travelling, and especially if the blog using an ipad. Blgging via ipad2 is not easy, in fact it is quite frustrating.

First is the issue of finding the time. One nice thing is I can write on the ipad notepad without being connected to the web. A lot of my posts are written there and then posted when possible. Typograpgical correcetions are one of the biggest pains, I am using the on screen touch keyboard and it requires a very specific touch and constant monitoring. To light a touch, to close to an adjoining key, and you have an indeciferable mess, then to correct, you must touch till the curser appears then drag the curser to where you need the correction then place the curser to the right of the correction as there is only backspace for correcting.

Oh and lots not even get started on photos. I purchased an app, Blogsy, it works, which is HUGE, but it is tedious. Add to that that I have not aken, made the time to figure out exactly how it works.

So most of my posts about the trip will be updated, augmented, and photos attached, later!

  1. Hi,

    Recently I came across some great articles on your site. The other day, I was discussing ( with my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written! Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

    Let me know what you think

    I have exactly the same problem trying to type extensively on the iPad. If I were wanting to Blog, I think I'd buy one of the very portable keyboards…some even double as a case, and recently they released a flexible plastic one that can actually be rolled up and stuffed in a bag. Keep up the good work!

    I can feel your pain. I have never blogged with an iPad, but I have dealt with the vicissitudes of odd connections. Blogging on the road is frustrating, but we truly appreciate getting to hear about your adventures as they are happening.

    But I really do appreciate my feather-light Sony Z series for the road.

    So this is kind of a pat on your back -and well deserved!

    Thank you

    I found the same thing. IPads are great for consuming content, not as good for creating content. So much easier to travel with, though, so unless the next MacBook Air is featherweight, I'm keeping the iPad as my travel companion.
