If you’re blogging from your default online blog editor, then it might be time to consider changing to a desktop blogging client. A desktop blogging tool has numerous advantages over an online blogging tool. In this article, I will attempt to enumerate the different advantages of using a desktop blogging tool over an online blogging editor.
Manage Multiple Blogs From Multiple Platforms
Using a blogging client like Windows Live Writer allows you to blog to multiple platforms like Wordpress, Blogger, TypePad simultaneously. You can easily works on each blog, from the same interface without needing to log into each account, navigate through each dashboard and load each online editor.
WYSIWYG EditorsOK, I agree that most blogging software worth their salt have a WYSIWYG editor included these days. However, desktop blogging clients have the ability to do Rich Text Formatting and some other goodies that online editors are not yet capable to perform. This means that including graphs, videos, tables, etc is easy and painless. Some desktop blogging clients even provide image editing capabilities right through the editing interface and more.
Save Backups Locally (and Drafts Too!)
Blogging platforms like Wordpress and Blogger now provides the auto save feature in their editor. Howver, it usually takes some time to save the post, especialyy if ithe post is long and your internet connection is a bit slow. This usually breaks your though flow and creates writer's block.
