No internet, no cable, it should be heaven. Right?
It would be cool if you could write on a notepad, then take photos of the writing and post those. No keyboard needed! 💜📝
I would be lost. . .it just emphasizes how much we rely on our devices.
A big step back in time…
Is this an age thing? 'Cos I wouldn't have a clue how to write newsletters etc on my phone. I thought it might be my age. I mean, I look at Instagram on my laptop because the pictures are bigger, clearer and I can see the text!
And that's another thing - I don't text if I can help it as it involves trying to find my reading glasses. So I just go 'Oh whatever!' and wait till later when I've found said specs! Much later.
Life's too short for technology. I'd rather enjoy myself! Cheers!
I concur. I hate trying to compose a coherent message on a phone's tiny keyboard. Between the typos and the auto-completions that are not what I intended, it sounds like I'm playing golf... badly. I have used a wireless keyboard (larger than the phone's keypad but still portable) with some success but, for those times when I just can't stand another session with my phone or laptop, I have tiny digital voice recorder that works beautifully. Sometimes, I just send the MP3 files to friends and family as attachments to email. Let them listen to me instead of reading my words. For more serious writing, I use Dragon to transcribe the MP3 files. But, the important thing is that I am mobile - away from my desk and from the phone's tiny screen - and able to focus on what I am saying rather than trying to get past the physical limits of equipment that doesn't quite cut it.
I hate composing on my phone and the substack editor has actually gotten worse because the toolbar which will allow you to add a picture is all the way at the top. (It used to scroll with you and stay at the top of your screen. I did want to share, though, that if your speech is clear enough, voice to text can be a lifesaver!
