MarsEdit

My next post will be the first one not written using Blogger's web-based tools. I recently bought MarsEdit from Red Sweater software, and I couldn't be happier about it. I now feel rather foolish for struggling along with the web-based posting tools for so long, realizing that every time I lost a post or spent hours tweaking the layout of code samples was all unnecessarily wasted time.

MarsEdit is a really great program that makes blogging much, much more pleasant and fun. It supports most of the major blogging platforms, is constantly being updated and made better, and it's just very Mac-like and easy to use. Plus, it's developed by an independent Mac developer, which means that by buying it, I'm supporting a peer, not some faceless corporate entity.

Daniel Jalkut (the independent developer behind MarsEdit) also maintains a great blog which has nearly 100 posts dedicated to different aspects of Cocoa programming which you should check out.

MarsEdit is pretty good, but it doesn't handle images very well. I used MarsEdit for about 6 months until I took a look at Ecto. I switched over not long after checking it out and haven't looked back since. :)

You should take a peek at Ecto. It handles images very well, allowing you to position them any which way you want in a post. I use Ecto myself exclusively and have not really found any reason to complain.

Of course, I would love a truly WYSIWYG editor for posting blog posts, but Ecto is about as close as they come.

I must agree about MarsEdit. Pictures are not very well handled. Also, at some point, the editor reminds me of a basic HTML editor called HotDog, long long time ago... Not very user friendly... prefer iWeb but we loose control... will look into ecto as soon as possible.

What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say.
