Blogging has always belonged to the land of desktops and laptops, but blogging from your iPad is getting easier all the time thanks to some smart, stylish apps. Here are the five best iPad apps we’ve found for blogging.
Works with: WordPress, Blogger
Price: Used to be $9.99, but now it’s free!
Simply put, Posts is the best blogging client for iPad. It’s got the kind of slick interface that Apple itself could have made, its lovely design features thumbnails to make managing your blog more visual, it offers both WYSIWYG and HTML editing, and you can even use it to manage multiple blogs. You can moderate comments from right inside the app, and there’s a robust offline blogging mode, too. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more full-featured, easy-to-use, beautiful blogging app anywhere. I wouldn’t mind seeing support for more blogging software, but for what you get, at zero cost… Posts can’t be beat. Read More
With constant access to the internet—and consequently one’s friends and family—it becomes hard to pull away from it all and focus on one’s work. Everyone does it: “Let me check Facebook for a second,” or “I should check my email in case my [loved one] has an important message for me.” Yet without realizing it, seconds slip into minutes, and minutes become hours.

Failing to manage your time reflects poorly on you as an employee, and repeated time management snafus turn into detrimental work habits. In an ever-connected world, focusing on one task as a time seems impossible.

Find one that works for you, stick with it, and get more done. Read More
In general, I would say that most bloggers are technologically savvy. They usually love social media, love trying new plugins and designs for the blog, and of course love their smartphones. I know that I can see my emails and Facebook messages with the click of a button, I can let everyone know where I am through my Foursquare , and I get tweets in the form of a text message so I know exactly what someone is mentioning me through Twitter, and I can do all of this on my smartphone. Needless to say, it goes everywhere with me.
