So you wanna blog on an iPad?

Hello guys!
So this post is going to be on blogging on an iPad or any mobile device for that matter. As most of you know, I got a iPad mini for my birthday and it's been where I've been blogging from the most recently. This is just what works for me, and you can tweak it for your needs and wants!

I like the blogger app. It's very basic, but it is good for getting words and pictures out in the order I want. Usually I email myself pictures and save them to my camera roll on my iPad, if I need pictures for the post I'm writing, because the app makes it super easy to insert them. 

The downside of the app is that you can only do very basic things. You can bold and italicize, but if you need to change the size, color or font, you need to go outside the app. Also, the app places pictures on "original size" and in its own row, so you may need to change that based on your preferences. Also, if you want to link text, you'll need to go out of the app.

So I go to my browser (I use safari, but you can use whatever you'd like) and go to blogger. I use this to change the font if I need to, link text, and fix the layout of pictures. You could do it all on the we page, but it's harder to add in pictures and it's less streamlined.

Now that you're done writing a post, how about Adsense or Analytics? Currently there are iPhone apps for both of these things, but not iPad apps so I would go to the webpage if you want to look at that. Also, the app doesn't show statistics, so once again, go to the webpage for that!

Honestly, blogging on the iPad is a lot more difficult that desktop blogging, but it can be more convenient if you're on the go and it is possible! Also, you can 100% use these things on a iPhone, but I wouldn't recommend it because the layout is just a lot smaller and it makes it a lot harder. 

If you blog using your iPad and you have tips that I haven't mentioned, leave it in the comments because I'm interested to see how others blog on iPads!

...and as usual my in to is my iPad mini! It's seriously my baby and I've been on it a lot more than I'd like to admit! And my over is coffee! I've been more into iced teas lately. Especially the peach green tea lemonade and the blackberry mojito tea lemonade from Starbucks! Or milk tea!
