While it’s been long since I’ve posted to The Digital Tavern, today someone suggested I explore using MacJournal. So this is my first test blog. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Here I insert an image…. but I wonder how I can tell MacJournal where to put the file when uploading?

After my test, I find that I can insert an image and it uploads correctly, but I don’t know where that file is uploaded to. Also, it appears that MacJournal doesn’t allow me to use a thumbnail and an active link to a full size or large image of the file.
On first view, there is no intuitive interface. Just making a word link in the copy is not standard. The command-K keyboard pair handles this. Nor is there an intuitive way to center that photograph above. Or what about putting the photo inline?
So while in five minutes I’m able to write this text and insert a photo, I’m still lost. Is there a way to access or download a list of all my previous entries?
I notice there isn’t a quick “publish” button anywhere and must use the “share” menu to publish a blog entry.
Okay. I’ve figured out how to download all the entries from my blog. Though when doing so the program freezes this entry screen.

    Hey, LTNB(log)!
    No picture visible here or in Google Reader. What is your aim? Offline blogging, or via web? ecto (or whatever it’s called now – Linear?) is good for offline, and Scibefire is pretty good with Firefox. Both can handle multiple blogs of different types.
    Lately I do most blogging (short entries anyway) via the iPhone. And I can now quote text and blog via WP.
    In any case it’s good to see you in writing again!
