I recently moved to WordPress as a blogging engine. So far I’ve liked it very much, and the WYSIWYG editor in the web browser is pretty good. Much better, in my opinion than the web based Movable Type editor.
That being said, I reall do like being able to blog quickly and efficiently from my desktop. Screen captures, text, copy and paste URLs, all make blogging feel much more like a treat; a thing you get into the rhythym of instead of taking time out of the day to get things "ready to go."
Now, if I ever decide to go Linux flat out I’ll have to do this all over again I suppose. Until then, I think I rather like it.
One thing I think is missing from nearly all of these desktop blogging products is the ability to do real copy and paste. Everything has to already be in a file. For quick screen captures to blog I’d LOVE for a tool to just accept clipboard data and make it into a file. Anyone know of any product that does that?
