…should probably be a Tumblr blog, really.

Squarespace is good for a lot of things, but quick posts isn't one of them. This is the process on the desktop;

  1. Open website dashboard
  2. Select "Pages"
  3. Scroll down and select the "scribbles" blog
  4. Click "+" to start a new post
  5. Double click into the actual post to open a text editor window.

By my count, thats about 4 more steps than I would really like...

Or, there is the bookmarklet, which is pretty good for linked posts (even if I do have to remember to either tick a box to actually make it a linked post, or delete the link if I don't want the original web page I clicked from to be in the CMS doing… well, whatever it is that it does if a non-linked post has a source URL attached to it…)

But its the iPhone app that is really bugging me. For some reason, the text is constantly scrolling up to the top of the page, then back down to wherever I am – so I'm not actually reading what I'm typing about 80% of the time.

I can't really remember why I went off Tumblr - if it was something to do with Tumblr itself (I know it had the Google problem of not dealing well with multiple accounts, but I don't think that was a major irritation the way that Gmail/YouTube can be) or just because I stopped posting in general. But I think its time to dip my toe back into that particular pool…
