Blogging Tools

January 10, 2012

I’m trying out various blogging tools. I started with BlogJet (http://www.codingrobots.com/blogjet/). Not bad, but I couldn’t quickly see how to do basic things, like edit previous posts.

Next I tried Zoundry (http://www.zoundryraven.com/). My wife has used this for a long time. Unfortunately it did not run well for me, crashing or failing to function. It is an old app — maybe it didn’t sit well with Win7 64 bit.

This post I’m making with BlogDesk (http://www.blogdesk.org/en/download.htm). So far so good. The image management features are good, for example, here’s Morgan & Alex:

I was able to easily shrink the orig 2.5 MB file down to 8K.

So far, BlogDesk is winning.

    Hmmm. I’m also Win7 64bit. Raven’s been o.k., but not great. Will investigate BlogJet.

    First of all – pretty darned excited to see this whole blog development. Look forward to seeing more of your writings.

    As far as blogging tools, fwiw, I’ve used Blogjet for years and was really happy with it, until recently when it started having problems connecting to my three Typepad blogs… I wrote to the guy at Coding Robots, but never heard back from him.

    I switched to Windows Live Writer. WLW is quite a bit heavier solution than little ol’ Blogjet.. but I’ve enjoyed using it as well. NB – if you go this route and you are on W764, save early and often because WLW likes to crash while posting.
