After this morning's dissatisfaction with blogging tools on the iPad I downloaded both Blogpress (paid) and Wordpress (free). Blogpress supports multiple platforms so it's the first one I'll try with this Blogger platform.
So far I have connected it with Flickr to host the images, but I'm getting an error connecting to YouTube for hosting videos. When this post is saved/published we'll see if the image gets posted. I'm not sure what's going to happen with the image placement. There are options for aligning it but it doesn't appear to be wysiwyg.
So far it looks pretty good. Blogpress
Will try Wordpress another day.
