So iOS just saw an exciting new update for it’s WordPress app. Normally, this isn’t exactly blog worthy news, except I’m actually using it to write this post for you fine people. 🙂 Here’s the thing. While the WordPress app was often convenient for comment moderating, drive by posts, and the occasional last minute flash fiction free read post over on Hollow Tree, it wasn’t practical for actual use. Like daily blogging, impossible to do on the app, because it was really just so clunky and frustrating. I didn’t even know where to go to upload a picture.
Now, with the update? It’s a whole new ball game. It’s clean, easy to manage, user friendly and, quite simply, awesome. I am so excited about this! I’ve made no secret of this summer’s all consuming effect on my household. I feel like I haven’t even had a moment to catch my breath. Obviously, my blog has suffered for it. Glancing at the span of time between posts is embarrassing. This blog and I were constant companions once upon a time. But, that said, I’ve very much enjoyed spending the summer sunshine on adventures with my son and husband. So, I guess, what I’m saying is, sometimes it’s about finding that balance. And I think this app will really help with that. I can blog at night before bed. Or early morning before my workout. I can still be connected without letting it interfere/take over my life.
Now to pull out the digital camera and get busy narrating the rest of my summer. 🙂 Stay tuned.
