With ElJay app you can post blog entries to your LiveJournal account. The app supports user pictures and GPS.

ElJay also supports any blogging service that uses the same URL structure or codebase as LiveJournal. So one can use this app for such service too. In order to do that, when you launch ElJay, click Menu, and then Settings, scroll to the bottom and you will find a server setting. Select that, and enter the domain name of your blogging service, like www.deadjournal.com. Hit OK, and log in with your username and password.

The app provides automatic save as draft functionality for unexpected quits, phone restarts, and task switching, so that if they will happen, you will be able to retrieve a recent version of your post.
