Help me blog with my iPad

What is the best solution for blogging with an iPad? Is anyone actually doing this? I'd like to be able to travel with just an ipad and a bluetooth keyboard instead of my laptop. What I need: CC photo search and image resizing, the ability to easily add links, and upload to a wordpress blog to which I'm a contributor. Blogsy looks pretty good. What say you Metafilterers? Doable? Pipe dream? Be honest.

Remember an early 2000s blog called Greybox or Greysquare?

Helping help a friend find an old blog. Here are the details she remembers: A guy. Blogging around 2000 - 2001. Posts were often confessional, inimate accounts of his torturous relationship with his girlfriend, who had some sort of eating disorder. He lived in San Francisco much of this time, but eventually moved to (possibly) NYC. The blog may have been called the Grey Square or the Grey Box. Not much to go on, but maybe it will ring a bell with someone?

Audio Blogs; do they exist?

Hello Mefi, I've recently discovered SoundCloud (!!!1) and its mobile application. Since, I'm trying to figure out a way to make use of it for a blogging platform. Say, random street-reports, or such. Do you know any Audio Blogs that don't deal with music, but with verbal audio bits? Reporting of some sort? Thanks!

Click on this, HuffPo

I remember reading company guidelines that detailed exactly how bloggers (aggregators, really) at HuffPo or Yahoo must choose subjects and style. It was put very aggressively, along the lines of: if a story doesn't promise at least 7000 individual clicks, don't even bother. I can't find this document anymore. Help me, please? [more inside]
