New editor

This is going to be a test of a new editor, BlogPress ($4.99), for the iPad. Using the free editor from BlogSpot was just not cutting it. All of the photos ended up at the bottom of the page which is not what I like.
This image is supposed to be on the left side with word wrapping on. In edit mode it is still in the middle and no wrap (ain't she cute!!!!!)

This text was under the photo in edit but now is to the right where it should be.

And this one (our BayCoast road engine #400) should be to the right side. But it ended up at the bottom in edit. With a few returns and deletes it finally got to this position.

I can see this is going to be a challenge for the next road trip since I will be attempting to blog just from my iPad. BUT if all else fails Beatrice will have her new Mac Book Air with her and if I beg her really nice she may let me use it.

What, you didn't know about this road trip????? Well it really isn't just a road trip. There will be a wedding, train rides, amusement parks, seeing some great model train layouts, and a big double family get together.

For now that's all the details I'm going to give, so you'll just have to stop back to learn more. I will give one hint, this event will take place in Lancaster Pa. So if you are in that area starting this Wednesday till next Monday let us know. We know a nice Panera Bread for coffee (just ask Doris who we met there).

OK OK OK ..... All looks good in the preview mode, next is to publish.

Note after publishing: all seems to have transfered nicely. I may be happy with this. G

It seemed to work just fine and dandy. I hope you have a bluetooth keyboard to help you with all of this typing ion the iPad.

Have a great trip.

Yes everything worked just fine :-) It's always a bit complicated when trying new things, at least for us not growing up with this technology :-)

Have a great day and trip!

Hi AC. Yes i do have the bluetooth keyboard but use it for my Macbook when i'm at my desk. I find that typing on the iPad is not as bad as i thought it would be. Plus it corrects my miss peeling better than i do.
Hi Lois. Thanks for the compliment. It is always scry trying out a new editor. Next is Ecto for the MacBook.
