A typical week around here

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I've been playing around with some applications to work out how I can best blog when we go away. I won't have a computer, just an iPad. The blogger iPhone application is pretty awful for iPad, and the blogpress app has some errors and keeps crashing - hopefully they will sort that out soon.

These photos were all taken on my iPhone using Hipstamatic, and composed on the iPad.

It's a quick view of a typical week around here!

Have you ever successfully blogged (and added decent sized images) with a mobile device? Do you have any other hints and tips for photo manipulation with an IPad? Any favourite applications? I'd love to hear about them!

btw: Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY!

If you have stopped by, it would be lovely if you could leave a comment or just say hello so I know that you've been here. Thank you!


  1. Hi Kathryn, isn't hipstamatic cool! I like pixiromatic as well to add frames and shades. PS express(photoshop) have a handy little ap that you can fiddle with saturation, exposure etc. I think too that you can change the settings on your mobile so that your photos are stored as a larger file. So spoilt these days!

  2. Sounds like a great week.
    Now you've got me interested in that magazine article. Is it in Aust Country Style or a HB that I haven't read yet?

  3. i am a hipstamtic fan and i love your week shots. i spend my time on the desktop at home. i bought 2 iPads and can't get my hands on any of them!! they are the best devices ever!! my son's nan & pop have been holidaying in the US the past 4 weeks. they seemed to do ok with using there iPad & iPhones for uploading photos, though they were only doing this to Facebook and not blogging. i haven't tried it myself yet. sorry, but i am not much help on the posting bit. xo.

  4. i really dont like blogging from the ipad. its the one thing I dont do on it. I find it always make the pictures pixaleted and buggers up the code. let me know if you find a cure :)

    Your week looks perfect.

  5. Karla - that you, I'll have to look into those apps. A PS one would be great.

    Heather - It's the November Country Style!

    Veronica - ha! We've just actually ordered a second one for the trip as one ipad between 3 people on a plane for 14 hours is not enough!

    Danielle - I'm searching! I really want to take the macbook. I knew I should've bought the air not the pro!

  6. Can't help, but I love your photo's taken from the Hipstomatic APP, I have been playing around with mine hopefully I can take great shot like you. Mimi xx

  7. Oh, I love all the photos! I'm getting ready to purchase a new laptop...totally necessary, and it's a work purchase, but ARGH, I hate to spend the money! I'm anxious to get mobile with photography and blogging too. Of course my phone needs to be upgraded too...sigh

  8. We go away soon and are actually leaving the computers behind, only taking our phones which I can't blog from. I'm going to suffer withdrawals for sure.
    Good luck with sorting all the techno stuff out!
    Annie xx

  9. Your blog is great...your photos are too!!!
    So glad i discovered it via BYW.
    Best regards

  10. Thanks Kathryn. I knew I had picked it up for a reason and almost bought it but it was in a wrapper so I couldn't flick through it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, you just made me smile!
