I’ve been a fan of desktop blogging clients for a long time. For some reason, anything less than millisecond publishing via browser just drives me batty. I think eventually I’ll be enraged I can’t just glare at the screen and have it instantly type my mood and publish it.
It grabbed my category listing – and organized it into my structure of cats and sub-cats – Ecto grabs it all and sorts by alpha with no hierarchy.
Live Writer also gives me a compose a post screen that looks EXACTLY like my blog’s template. This really kinda blew my mind. It is nice to be startled by technology that suddenly makes you think: ‘Yeah, I guess it should work like that and from now on everyone else will need to make this part of their tools.’
Super kudo to the Live Writer team!!
