The easiest way to blog on an iPad, which I have used to date, is to:
– Type notes in Notes (free, comes on the iPad)
– Email your notes to email@example.com
That’s it! It is possible to configure your Posterous website to cross-post to other websites and locations, but that is not required. I used this method to blog our last session here in Manchester, NH on a “This I Believe” style project for communities. When you want to share links, simply paste the full URL and Posterous will make them hyperlinked in your post.
My 2nd favorite iPad blogging tool is Blogpress. It’s more complicated, however, but does support more options. WordPress for iOS is good for moderating comments on the go (and quickly wherever you have connectivity) but it just supports WordPress blogs. These can be self-hosted or free blogs on WordPress.com. Blogpress works with more blogging platforms, including Blogger.

I would agree with Posterous as being a great resource for posting. Through your sharing, I have set up PicPosterous sites with students who are now able to easily post what they are creating on their iPods!
Have you tried Tumblr? I tried to get into posterous, but it never really “caught me”. Tumblr, on the other hand, has. 🙂
