I just downloaded and installed Zoundry's Blog Writer over lunch, a free and ultra-feature-filled blog editor. This thing is slick! I am writing this post with the new editor.

I think I found my new blog editing app that I have been dreaming of for so long. At least it's going to get a real trial run. I have fought with Rocketpost so many times (it has never worked for me, and the authors don't seem to answer email anymore), and while I love BlogJet, the feature set in Zoundry is pretty incredible.

I'll write more about it tonight, after I get a chance to play around with it some more.

zoundry1.JPGUPDATE: I am having a hard time getting the app to play nicely with my web hosts's FTP. Seems to upload image files, but the "test" mechanism says it does not work correctly, which is kind of strange. I have filed a post on the support forums, we'll see how that goes. I can upload images, as witnessed at right...

UPDATE AGAIN: One super cool feature I noticed was that Zoundry totally used the newly-implemented blog autodiscovery calabilities that have recently been baked into dasBlog by Omar. None of the old manually setting up and remembering the URL for the blogger API or any of that stuff. Nice!!

Just trying it out now but I'm a fan of BlogJet. Sure, I can't drag'n'drop images into BlogJet but it also doesn't have any bloat like this one seems to. It looks like it's written in Python which is somewhat slow and a bit of a pig on resources but we'll see. However I'm not too happy right now, I setup my account to connect to my blog but now it's downloading all 500 or so entries. Oh well.

Bill: Yeah, I am a huge BlogJet user and fan. What it lacks in features is a tradeoff for the lightweight fast app.

And you're right I think - it's python that it was created in. But the featureset on Zoundry is pretty darned awesome!

500 entries? Wow, by blog only let it grab I think 45. :)

Once they download, you're good to go.

Nice! Not too bad, although either me or it screwed up the time stamp of the most recent posting I made on my site. Oh well, we'll see. So far, it's nice, although a tad bit slow.

Braden - interesting, I noticed the same thing, as did a colleague. Looks like you're running subtext. I wonder what other platforms are affected in the same way?
