Windows Desktop Blogging Software

Posted by: of Online Marketing Blog on 05/17/07

Sometimes, writing blog entries via a web form just doesn’t work. That’s why I’m looking forward to Mariner Software’s new blogging client called WinJournal. The WinJournal name might be familiar since Mariner Software also created MacJournal.

Currently in beta testing mode, WinJournal offers journaling, blogging and podcasting in one application. The blogging capabilities work with all popular Windows blogging software including: MovableType, TypePad, WordPress, Live Journal, Blogger and Windows Spaces. WinJournal also allows you to publish blog entries to a web server via FTP so it can be used as a web site editor as well. WinJournal can also be used to write entries stored locally.

Other options include: wiki style links, spell check, auto save, security/encryption, WYSIWYG text editor, calendar, multiple journals, labels, full screen mode and tabs. There is also a skins manager to change the look an feel of the WinJournal software. This is a good thing since the default skin under XP isn’t so good.

Other popular desktop blogging software includes: Qumana, , , , , Rocket Post 2 and Zoundry. Thomas has a short review on desktop and web based browsers at OMB.

  3. Thanks for introducing this tool to me… definitely planning to try it out.. in this day and age blogging getting a windows tool that does something along the same lines would be a great way for organizations to open up blogging channels in-house.

  6. Having been a part of Qumana, I think I used all of the editors out there. I recommend Live Writer, BlogDesk or Qumana as good choices.

  8. I like the idea of being able to write and edit on the desktop or laptop as apposed to on the web. I am working on turning my computer into a server to write and make database backups on the fly. Way to much work. This sounds a lot easier.

  9. Blog software is the last thing that matters. The success of blog writing is hiding in your useful content.
