Well, I love wordpress. I like my blog’s admin interface and included WYSIWYG editor (TinyMCE), But am not a big fan of it. So I started looking for a perfect desktop blogging client. Well, let us see how my search turned out.
Criteria for a perfect blogging client were as follows.
- Be Simple, reliable and stable.
- User oriented.
- Support for Multiple blog types and protocols.
- Offline blogging. i.e. Save posts, edit them later. Also we should be able to edit the previous posts/pages.
- Produce valid semantic markup. (HTML/XHTML)
- Support WYSIWYG (rich text editing) as well as HTML source edit mode.
- Upload/Insert images easily.
- Streamlined interface with a smooth learning curve.
- Categories, Trackbacks, pinging support.
- Full encoding support.
- Spell checker.
- Support for multiple languages
- Preserve/remove formatting when content is pasted from word.
- At least minimal image editing/thumbnail creation.
- Not dependent on any browser for its full functionality.

My search for the ultimate blogging client was based on the above criteria.
- My blog is powered by WordPress 3.0.1. For the purpose of testing, I created a blog using wordpress 3.0.1. Just to be safe.
- I usually blog on my Windows 7 machine (Intel Core 2 Quad/2GB RAM/250GB 7200RPM hard disk/Dual screen(1920×1080/1440×900). I also blog on my Lenovo S10-3T netbook tablet and iMac(24” 2007 iMac).
- I chose to try only the stand-alone blog clients. Reason is simple. I would rather use my wordpress admin than to use Browser based client.
- I am looking for a stable, trouble-free blogging client. It need to work flawlessly for both quick posting and writing more detailed posts. What we primarily need is convenience, but definitely not at the expense of basic features. Convenient user experience brings out more creativity.
- My testing blog can be found here http://kav.in/test/wp301 . Posts are done by individual programs and include some minimal rich text editing. Just for viewing, people.
