I place the blame firmly on the doorstep of Instagram.
I think that's when a lot of us amateur (as opposed to the "big" blogs that do it as a career) fell out of love with blogging.
Instagram was so, well, instant.
You could pop up a photo and interact with your online friends in a matter of moments.
You still had a record of what you'd been up to but it was all so much less effort than blogging.
When I started this blog five (yes FIVE!!) years ago I had a laptop. For the last three years or so I have had an iPad and Blogger is still tricky on a tablet - you'd think they'd have sorted it by now TBH.
I'm writing this post via on a new app I've downloaded (I was using Blogsy which was pretty good when it works, but it often plays up and your post that looks perfect in the app is all over the place once posted to your actual blog) so I'm hoping it'll be "the one" to make blogging via iPad as easy as it was on my elderly laptop....
But I thought I might try and blog at least weekly again - will you read if I do?
