What device is the most blogger-friendly ?
The device you use to write blog on is very very important.
Travel blogs require a laptop or a tablet.
Have you ever blogged using a smartphone?
I doubt it was the same as your tablet.
I have used various devices and I found that the Chromebook, Lenovo, Dell and all tablets are easy to carry around and
CHARGE! Tablets that can handle all my graphics are: iPad , Samsung galaxy note, Android tablet from various companies, in that order.
If you want to and need to blog from your smart phone, I suggest getting a keyboard that can be used with a phone.
The most ideal device is not one device but a device and some peripherals.

The rhetorical question: Is your blog mobile friendly?
For Heaven's Sake, make it MOBILE friendly!
If more than 33% is blogging seriously and 60% of those are below 35, from a population of 26 million,
How many tablets and tablet friendly keyboards can one expect to sell?

When you use a tablet and a keyboard, your life as a blogger gets easier.
It is a plus that the laptop may be used by your feline friends.
Writing/blogging is a small part of your blogging efforts. If you are serious then you have to read a lot. This can be accomplished on any device. Kindle fire seems to be popular.
