Just the basics.

iPad Blogging

So this post is more of a survey and HELP me post. I am definitely not the most technologically advanced person in the world. Yes, I work in the Emergency Room and yes we use computers, but if it’s something more than simply entering orders on a patient, documenting, or writing discharge instructions, my skillz are non-existent. Just ask my sister Alexis…I have to ask her how to use Excel and certain tasks in Word. I guess those computer classes in middle school, high school, and college (which I am now paying back) were super helpful, right?

So since I have this nifty new iPad, which I am currently blogging from, I am wondering if any of you technologically savvy people use it often as well for blogging. I like that I can take it everywhere with me, but the WordPress app I am currently using is leaving a large amount to be desired.

There are limited functions as far as customizing and adding pictures goes as you can see from this picture…


I have the option of bold, italic, inserting a link, scoring, and doing HTML code which again, I have no idea where I would even start with that.

I feel like with soooo many blogs out there and so many people who use iPads all the time, that there has to be a better app out there than this one. The real goal would for the app to be easy for formatting and adding pictures, which I love to include on my blogs.

Blogging from the WordPress app isn’t terrible, but to blog comfortably I would like something a little more advanced. So that’s why I am asking all of you techy blog people out there if you’ve ever encountered anything like what I am describing. If you could fill me in, that would be great!

On a different note, I worked until 4 am, spent 5 hours sleeping in a Holiday Inn last night and just spent 2.5 hours at a bridal shower. I love bridal showers because they make me more excited for mine!!! But needless to say I am exhausted and finally found my spot on our couch. 🙂

Also, for the techy’s out there, I am searching for a mobile hot spot that will not cost me more than $50 a month. That is Verizon’s going rate and I feel like there has to be a cheaper service out there!! Again…help!!!!

And I will leave you with this little gem…

You’re welcome. 🙂

  1. Oh gosh – I hate the wordpress app. It always crashes on me anyway. I only blog from my laptop… Which somehow I end up carrying around with me more often than I do this ipad. Haha wish I could be of more help but my own solution to the problem is to avoid it!
