Stop, that is my suggestion. Go back to the PC!

Try a laptop.

Ok, so that link (which doesn't give an auto URL, I see) goes to a bunch of images for Hewlett Packard laptops. Yes I know Hurd might be a dick and yes I know other brands are cooler these days and yes I know HP were going to pull the plug on their whole line of laptops. But my HP laptop is a nice, quick, reliable machine. Lots of memory, easy read screen and most importantly, a decent, well laid out keyboard with responsive keys that stand the passage of time very well (the main thing you need if you write a lot). As for transport, buy a Porta backpack and there's never a problem.

I'm not a sales rep and in fact bought the HP machine nearly at random, but i haven't found another one that's more comfortable to write on. Except my PC. The end.

Get some sort of Swype-like input software, if you don't already have it. I believe Swype was bought up and taken off the market, but there should be something similar available.

Generally, though, I recommend using an actual keyboard whenever possible.

When I need to write longer text on the IPad I'm using wireless keyboard.

Sadly, no. If the iPhone app for Blogger is made for the iPad, then maybe it'll be easier. But even that is clunky.

I have a docking keyboard for my Asus Android tablet which works well when you want to do typing intensive work. The strange thing is that when I move back to using my laptop, I keep swiping at the screen.

BE Write HD is a good app for blogging from the iPad. We certainly hope you haven’t used it yet (since you aren’t happy with blogging from your iPad). If you have used it, we would love to hear what you don’t like about it. If you haven’t used it, there’s no time like the present!

We’ve got video tutorials at: http://bewriteapp.com/videos.html
