Using Blogsy

Type in Blogsy

This is a test of the application called Blogsy which I’m going to do a review of and the quick run through of what the application is capable of. It is quite handy to have an application on your iPad that will let you do blog postings to platforms. I like to use WordPress but other people might like to use Posterous, Tumblr, Blogger or Joomla. You can even make a blog post to Squarespace.

It is easy to add text to your documents and you can also add photos and videos. The application does take a little bit of getting used to, in terms of how to get your pictures into the document. After you have done it once or twice you will find it very very easy. As the actress said to the Bishop….

You have the possibility of making the text bold, italics or underlined and you can set the formatting to be left justified or one of the other justifications of the text. you can set a paragraph to be header one, header two or header three, or whatever you want and you can even include a block quote. There doesn’t seem to be a way to have the text flow around an image, unless you go in and edit the HTML in the code side of the post.

To get started you need to set up the access to the blog and you can if you do that by adding a blog to the Blogsy application.

  1. Thank you for writing about Blogsy.

    1) It looks like you typed to the right of your image and this is why you have the “You” all by itself to the right of the image. If you tap and type at the grey triangle below the image then you won’t have this problem.

    2) If you want text to flow around your image double tap on the image in your post to open the Image Settings menu. In this menu you can choose alignment which will make the text flow around your image.

    3) We have a whole set of how-to videos in the Settings menu. Users have let us know they really helped them get the hang of, and most out of, Blogsy. There are many hint and features which we show in the how-to videos which my not be readily apparent to uses.

    Again, thanks for writing about Blogsy.

    Happy Blogging,
    The Blogsy Guys
