Hi All,

After a couple of very hectic years, I am back to sewing and want to blog my efforts. I have a much neglected blogger blog, Pink Collar Criminal, an d I can write posts but can't seem to add photos.

Anyone have any words of wisdom?

Thanks in advance.

I tried a few posts from an ipad 2 and downloaded an application called BlogPress to do it, that was for a Blogger blog. I'm pretty sure it is free. It allows you to add photos from your ipad or HTML links fairly easily - there are buttons on the right hand corner in the post writing page. The application links you to your blog and allows you to write a post pretty much like normal, although I noticed it added spaces I couldn't get out and the photos didn't look very clear in the final post.

I'll be very interested in the tips you get too, I'm hoping there are better ways than the BlogPress app.

I started using the Blogger+ app a couple of posts ago and find that it works much better than BlogPress. I gave up on BlogPress when Ios5 came out and BlogPress would crash everytime I opened it.

Blogger+ is not free, but not terribly expensive at $2.99. It is interesting in that you build a post in sections. You can have text sections, sections for photographs, etc. Links can be embedded.

For me, the key point was being able to use a non-Google site for pictures. I use Picturetrail.com for my pictures and have for 10 years. I didn't want to have to switch to a new picture hosting site again. I wanted an app that could take pictures from my iPad or Picturetrail without too much complication. I do have several steps to go through to get it to work, but with Blogger+ and SplashTop (which I use to access my laptop from the iPad), I can blog from the iPad without dragging the laptop around.
