Catching up on email

Some of you may have noticed that I liked or commented on one of your posts from a few weeks ago, or months ago.

I follow many blogs and find it impossible to comment on them all. There’s just not enough time in a day.

So, a few times a year I go through my entire inbox of the email account I use for WordPress.

It seems like I just did this over the holidays. And that was only 6 or 7 weeks ago?

I’m pretty good about reading email every day but it is too much to keep up with. And I don’t like to leave crappy comments, though I’m sure you’ve seen one or two from me.

If I leave a “like” it means I read your post and I’m just saying hello and letting you know I actually read your post. I don’t always have something insightful to say.

I also just downloaded the new Jetpack mobile app and am writing this post on my phone.

While blogging on your phone may be convenient, I don’t see how you can do much editing. You can’t see much text on the screen.

I’ll have to test the formatting tools next time and see how you add photos and such.

Thanks for reading,

    Andy, would you recommend downloading the Jetpack App? I can edit pretty well in my phone as is. Are there advantages I can’t imagine; they’re certainly pushing it. Advice welcome. Thx. And hope you’re taking care of your knees!

      Hi Jane,

      On 2/15 Automattic published “Switch to the New Jetpack Mobile App” on News.

      They are removing some features from the WordPress app and moving them to JetPack.

      The WordPress app will be more for writing posts and wont have all the backup, scanning and other features.

      There is a table in their post that compares the two and JetPack has all the features and WordPress has just the basics.

      When you first switch, it “automagically” transfers everything for you. And believe it or not, it really did.

      The only issue I have is that I used to log into the WordPress app w/ out having to remember my password.
      JetPack asks me each time and it doesn’t like my password.
      So I haven’t used it since the first day I downloaded the app, because it doesn’t like my password.

      Good ole WordPress!
