Since moving to MacOSX and Ubuntu, I’m missing the very useful BlogDesk offline blogging program.
BlogDesk development seems to have slowed or stopped but it has enough features to satisfy. I especially loved the ability to insert and resize the image directly in the program. The image is then automatically uploaded together with the post. Simple and effective. For those that are (still) on Windows (which I know many of you are), do yourself a favor and try it.
ScribeFire has been around for sometime and I had tried it in various stages with disappointment. Unfortunately it seems to be the only offline blogging tool available that is availabe for both Mac and Ubuntu.
Mac has a few paid tools with Ubuntu seems to have a total lack of offline blogging client that is still being actively developed. Let me know if you know of any recommendation, preferrable opensource or free, works on Mac and Ubuntu.
In the meantime, I’m going to give ScribeFire a go to see if it has gotten any better.
Here’s using ScribeFire in Ubuntu.
