Consumption and Not Creation


I was gifted an iPad recently and after a few days getting it set up to my liking I thought i would try creating a blog post or two on it.

Spoiler: I can’t.

It’s too hard for me to navigate between all the different apps and windows to get a simple post like this published.

I tried, I really did.

Now, I use jekyll to write this blog so it’s a bit more complicated than using Wordpress where I could install a dedicated app and be done with it where I could just enter a title and write the post.

But with my jekyll site like this I find it’s easier to just use a real computer. Heck even my Chromebook works for this better than the iPad.

I googled and searched and read some other blogs and sites that say that they did it so it must be possible, but I am just not feeling it.

I know that Apple wants us to believe the iPad is the second coming and it’s a personal computer but for my use case it’s just not for me and I prefer a more traditonal computer using Ubuntu as my OS of choice where I can write in the terminal or use any text editor of choice and know I can get a quick post actually published

This doesn’t mean I won’t get a lot of use out of my iPad, but just not for content creation. I will leave that for others.
