On-site blogging

Well, I took the plunge and bought an iPad to write (and publish) on-location wherever I went this summer. In fact, I am keying in this entry via my iPad. It is both easy and incredibly convenient to use. I know that many critics have said that it can’t replace the laptop, and. I don’t disagree with them. However, for my purposes in writing in various locations, I would say that the iPad replaces about 90% of my computer needs. It’s been nearly 10 years since I bought a new computer, and this was a very economical choice.
The only drawback that I can see right now is that this version of the iPad does not have a built-in camera (none of them do at this time). As I frequently include pictures in my entries, it will be an extra step to take a picture with my phone, email it to myself, download it on to the iPad, and then incorporate it into the entry.
When you really think about it though, it’s only one extra step. No big deal at all, really.
I look forward to posting more regularly now, especially since school is winding up. It’s nice to make the time to write and know nothing will suffer as a result!
