To Blog or Not to Blog

Purchasing my iPad 3 over a year ago, I will admit it comes in handy when vacation rolls around since it is smaller and lighter than my laptop.

However, although I use Blogsy occasionally, I have found that it's not all that's cracked up to be.  I don't know if it's the iPad or if it's Blogsy.

Blogsy's spacing seems off compared to what I'm used to in Blogger.  Things always seem so crowded and I like space.

Take last week, for instance.  I wanted to write a few posts.  Yet Blogsy wouldn't let me drag and drop in any pix.  It kept giving me error messages that I couldn't find listed under their error messages!!  Hello out there all you Blogsy techies????

Meanwhile I was running my weekly scan on my laptop so that was out of the question.  Feeling frustrated with the Blogger Application on the iPad, I gave up...just gave up.

I noticed accessing the Labels and Date for scheduling is so touchy.  Sometimes they work fine and other times they don't.  And speaking of that section when writing apost, can anyone tell me when/why "Permalinks" is used?

So what's the answer to any of this?

Hello JP.
Do carry on blogging. I would miss you.
I have an iphone. I could also blog from that and a tablet that i could blog from.
I do hope that you can get some answers.

Wishing you a happy end of the month.

Nothing is perfect for sure....well....some of us think we are lol. I don't have any electronic gadgets like smart phones or tablets I just use my clunky old desktop and some days that is problem enough....but hey....if it's worth saying it's worth persevering right?

not sure the answer to this one. Apparently you can't create posts on Blogger with an iPad ...??? You need to use an i version i.e. Blogsy? Hopefully someone else can help

I have no answers but I certainly hope you don't give up blogging. I've noticed that from my desktop to my laptop things don't necessarily work the same and it's rather annoying. Now I use the desktop for certain things and the laptop for others. I haven't even attempted bringing my kindle in to the mix. That would probably put me over the edge.

I've never blogged from my iPad or MacBook. I always use my laptop (Microsoft) because all my photos are either on it or our cloud storage.

Please don't give up blogging JP! I can't help you with your questions but there is a blog called "Sew Many Ways" and she had a sub-title with questions about blogging that she has done posts on. Check it out and she might be able to help you. I blog on my MacBook and nothing else after getting it. My pics are on it too. I've heard that it's hard to blog from an iPad. Good luck! Pam

I have found when blogsy is being buggy that if you close the app and then start again everything works fine.

What is wrong with Blogger? It works for me on my iPad 2. And has for almost 700 blog posts. And it is FREE. And I download my photos from my camera to my iPad or just snap photos with the iPad camera. My blog will never win awards, but so what! And I can blog from my iPhone and PC using Blogger. As for Blogsy, I had never even heard of it. So not a clue as to how to answer your questions. Success with blogging, but do not stop. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

You are not going to stop blogging, are you? That would be a very sad day, indeed. Please don't. I don't know anything about pads. Hope you can figure it out.

Don't know about Blogsy, but when traveling use my iPad to write and post on my blog. Have had problems exactly like you describe, and it is very frustrating. Have found no answer - except to use my computer, but the iPad is much more convenient, smaller, and lightweight when on the go. Good luck finding techies who can help you.

I have never heard of Blogsy, it is special for IPads? I find it so much easier to just post from my laptop. But I can easily comment from the iPad.

You must blog. Don't use Blogsy!

Frustrating isn't it? I just use the Blogger app on my iPad when I want to post from there but we'll see how that goes when I'm in Ireland because I'm only taking my iPad. It's not that great but for a quick post, I think I can do it.
Hope you get things sorted out JP - sometimes a break away from blogging renews the interest to post again.

I use the wordpress app as I use wordpress after I left blogger several years ago

Hi there - I never try to do much other the looking at web pages, checking (but rarely answering) mail on my iPad. As soon as I need to type, out comes a lap-top.

I have had no real issues with blogger - but I don't do much that is adventurous with it!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
