Trying out Blogsy

With a new iPad and a big trip on the horizon, I thought it might be time to figure how to post from Blogsy, the app that is supposedly a reasonable way to replace LiveWriter when not using a compatible device. Gates and Jobs really hate talking the same language. So far I am not impressed, but neither am I all that impressed with my typing speed on this glass screen!

Ah well. Life does throw curves now and then. For my birthday on Saturday I had a great day, unaware that the twisted knee that I started with would morph into a torn meniscus making it nearly impossible for me to walk without crutches by the following Monday.

A much better surprise was the huge flock of young pelicans I saw on my way to town for a birthday breakfast. Or the gorgeous diamond hoop earrings my daughter brought to me on Sunday. Or the special pieces added to my heirloom dishes found by my other daughter on eBay and shipped my way.

Still, this way to post leaves a lot to be desired so for now this will have to suffice. Just practicing.

  1. I tried Blogsy … and a whole slew of others … when I switched from PCs to Apple products … was not impressed with them at all. They do a good enough job, I suppose, but don't have the flexibility to format things the way I want them formatted.

    You be careful with that knee.

  2. Happy Birthday, Sue. A torn Meniscus – that sounds painful, sure hope it won't require surgery.

    Typing on a glass screen requires a lot of practice and patience – neither of which I like much. Apple has a neat little remote keyboard that's supposed to work great and it's not very expensive either.

  3. Boy my life is really mixed up. Somehow I totally missed this post and that you have hurt your knee and are on crutches. I'm SO sorry. This sounds terrible and right around your birthday too. Bummer. I hate typing on those screens. I hope I'm totally old and senile or long gone by the time I can't have a regular keyboard to type on. But as one who uses all ten fingers and really learned to type, I've become a relic.

    Wishing you a fast and easy recovery. The diamond earrings and heirloom dishes (which I LOVE) sound wonderful. But the knee not so much.
