Ever since I started using WordPress, I was looking for a good blogging client. I started out using Blogdesk, and for a free blogging client, it was great. Even blogging straight from the admin page is pretty good, but I prefer a client on my local computers. I would prefer something free since I am on 3-4 different computers on a given day.
Recently, I tried Blogjet which proved to be quite nice. What I didn’t like about it was the price. Sorry, but $50 is just too much for a product that isn’t even being developed right now. The last update was made last year. Paying that much for a product that isn’t even being actively improved just doesn’t impress me.
A few days ago I uncovered Windows Live Writer. At first, I was hesitant to even try it. After all, its a Microsoft product and I just didn’t think would work with WordPress which is an open source project. Boy, was I wrong. Windows Live Writer interfaces with many major blogs like Blogger, Livejournal, and WordPress. It is much more feature rich than Blogdesk. Best of all, its free!
