Blogsy, iCab Mobile & In the Garden Today, Terrific Thursday 7-19-12




Cellspin, my former blogging app, is great for uploading individual photos, but not so good with a whole blog post containing photos & text. Yesterday, I worked all afternoon to learn blogsy, turns out I just needed to change my thinking. I still have a few things to work out, but I'm enjoying working with Blogsy. The switch in thinking came, when I decided to go with what I knew right then about creating a post with Blogsy. Cellspin allowed me to upload photos directly from my iPad, so far, I haven't figured how to do that with Blogsy. I did learn a round about way of creating a full blog post with text & photos/videos. 1st thing, in blogsy, I upload my photos to flickr & videos to youtube, then I can drag them into blogsy for a complete post. Yay;D! Blogsy does have the capability of direct upload, I just don't know how yet.

The 2nd thing I need to learn is how to multiple post to instagram, Facebook, etc., I'll work on that next week. I'll save direct posting for a later time, it may take me a long while, but I'm sure I will figure it out. I just keep asking the questions, I need answers to.

Another exciting discovery, I made on this creative hiatus, is a new browser called iCab Mobile. I may be as excited with this browser as I was getting Blogsy to work. Why you ask, well, I can access the design section of my blog with my iPad. My iPad is my only computer, it's so easy to use, especially with my sensitive wrists. My poor blog has been stagnant visually until now, because I couldn't save a design change with my iPad. Now, I haven't tested it fully, but I was able to add an email subscription widget. I need to test the email widget, then it's on to header change, etc., etc., we're cooking with gas as my Dad would say.

Hope you all have a Terrific Thursday;D! Sues
