Blogging, Blogging, Blogging. every Tom Dick and Jane seems to be blogging lately. If you are anything like me, you want to make the experience as trouble free and user friendly as possible. While most blogging software allows you to post your blogs online, you might need to be able to do that whilst your not connected to the internet. If you do not have an offline blog editor and publisher, then you're stuck.

To write or post a blog post when you are not connected to the Internet, offline blog editors are the official solution. With these tools you can easily write, edit, spell-check and manage the content of your blog even though you are not connected to the net.

This might be of particular interest if your internet connection is not reliable, or if you often find yourself in places where there is no internet connection, or if you find that you might want to save draft copies of your post to be completed at another time. Offline editors are the way to go.

Have you ever been typing away into your blogging software program when your internet connection went down or the power went out? Have you lost all of your work and had the agonizing feeling of having to do it all again? When you type your blog post in your browser, there is no way of saving your work.

Here are some great reasons to switch to offline blogging, or great features your offline editor needs to have.

  1. No internet reliance
  2. Easy to upload images and video
  3. Speed
  4. Easy to publish to multiple blogs
  5. Easy to copy ‘n paste without additional code.
  6. Visual-preview
  7. Text-alignment
  8. Adjustable font styles
  9. trackback pings
  10. Twitter notifications

 

Windows Live Writer

Proof that something good can come out of Microsoft. Windows Live Writer allows you to manage and also create a blog on the major blogging platforms: Windows Live, WordPress, Blogger, MovableType, Live Journal, TypePad, and more. Fully integrated with other services of the Live family, Live Writer supports spell checking, and the ability to embed any Type media content, word count, support for multiple languages, plug-ins. It supports the ability to have multiple blog accounts, but not the ability to post to multiple blogs simultaneously. Not supported: tags, pings, multi-blog posting, and Twitter notifications. Although there are a lot of plug-ins written for Live Writer that will give most of this functionality and more.
