Using a good blog editor makes life a lot easier when you blog, in particular as you blog several blogs at the same time (say 5-6 blogs or so) on various different platforms.
Editor choices are plenty….there are no "best editors" although a poll by Lifehacker suggests that Performancing (also known as Scribefire) is the most popular one so far followed closely by WBloggar. What makes these editors so cool in some cases is the ability to add plugins inside your post without dealing with all this HTML messiness, this is particularly true for Wordpress. Some of them support picture editing, cropping and importing as well, spell checks and so on and so forth. Best of all, almost all of them will do the pinging for you when you post, so saves you time to go visit pingomatic or similar.
Here are some download links for good Blog Editors
Windows Live Writer, if you like editing Microsoft Word style, this one is for you. It has interesting plug-ins but I haven’t had the time to check it out. It’s also nice because it lets you custom edit tags….
Qumana, simple fast and easy. For major editing needs it may not be suitable, but it’s pretty decent nevertheless.
Scribefire, this one used to be called performancing and is a firefox plugin, very popular but in comparision relatively simple.
Zoundry, don’t know it, looks decent enough.
Ecto is shareware, and developed in Japan.
Open Source Semagic
and BlogJecosts money is available at http://www.codingrobots.com/blogjet/ and Rocket Post also costs 12 dollars available at http://www.anconia.com/rocketpost/ and although FLOCK offers blog editing as well, it’s really basic, so I don’t recommend it.
Just because it costs money, doesn’t make it the best however…so if you have time I suggest you start trying these tools for yourself. I currently use Qumana although it’s somewhat basic, but they all do the job. I’m going to update my findings here as time goes on…but feel free to let me know what you think! Oh yeah, all of the above should work fine with Sanriotown!
