I’ve really enjoyed writing and blogging, it’s something I have always wanted to do but never got around to doing. I’m glad this year I gave myself the push and just jumped in and did it.
To do my writing I use two apps, iA writer and WordPress, I use them both in different ways.
My blog site is hosted in WordPress so I use that app most often to write my posts. I also used the iOS version to create and maintain my site. The editor is great, it’s quick and easy to create posts, add pictures, links etc. It’s my daily driver for sure.
I also use iA writer, now I haven’t gotten used to all the formatting and markdown you can do with that app, but if I wanna just sit down and write something, and put out thoughts and feelings in a more long form way I haven’t found a better app.
I listened to a podcast with Greg Morris and Gabriel Santiago earlier this week and something was mentioned about having a bunch of items in iA writer and looking at them, cleaning them up and posting them.
That spoke to me, I have been using iA writer to write a lot more personal emotional things, posts and ideas, who knows if I will ever release them, but they are all there stored and in an iCloud backup file for me to access.
I love both these apps and I use them on a daily basis for my workflow.
