I’m a little surprised - I’ve been banging out blogs at a rate of about one every couple of days or so, but after the blog I posted on January first, I needed to get some traction on the Firefox book, and I needed a bit of a breather. Blogging can get to be a little too intensive at times, eating into everything else that you do, and if you’re not very careful you can get to the point where your every waking moment is geared towards getting those numbers to edge up beyond the last spike … “Uurrggh, must have my reader fix!!”
M. David Peterson just turned me onto a very interesting blogging tool - w.blogger (at http://www.wblogger.com. It’s essentially a reasonably complete word processing tool that’s specifically designed for use with a whole host of blogs. I’m still getting a feel for it, but thus far I’m pretty impressed with the product - a standalone blog editor that doesn’t need to be online to work, that contains a full set of formatting tools, works with a fairly wide number of blogging servers and is open source to boot. We’ll see how well it works over the long term, but out of the gate I could see it being an invaluable addition to my set of tools.
