This is somewhat of a test post, in fact my very first post from an iPhone. I do prefer my laptop, but I’m trying to figure out if I can effectively continue blogging while I walk the Camino de Santiago without having to cart it with me. Here I am experimenting with blogging via the WordPress app!
My first observation with this is that I am somewhat of a perfectionist, so the first thing I usually do when I’m blogging is make sure my posts are justified to both margins. Con: Typing on this iPhone right now, I can’t see a way to do that, and it is slightly bothering me. (Yes, slightly OCD…) Hopefully I can figure justifiable margins out.
Pro: It is relatively comfortable typing on this screen, it isn’t as slow as I thought it would be compared with typing on a keyboard, and there is autocorrect. The iPhone also makes it easy to scroll and jump back to a sentence anywhere so I can quickly edit it. I can also exit this application and do something else like check Facebook or emails without having to save, and I don’t need to worry about losing my work. Just tried that out – thank goodness it worked!
Another thing I would like to be able to do while I’m on the Camino is share photos here, so in an attempt to discover how to add photos on this, enjoy a photo of my roommates Bearded Dragon: [10 minutes later, I figured it out…]
Well there you have it! My very first post via the WordPress app on the iPhone. I still have four months to decide whether I want to carry a little extra weight and take my laptop or just stick it through with this. Now, does anyone know how to make these margins justified?
