Blogging with ecto

I ain’t afraid of no ghost!

Ever since I started blogging, I’ve been trying to come up with a good way to get html into my posts so that can write tutorials. It’s something I’ve struggled with and as an upshot – I have two or three articles that are waiting to be published that I can’t get my code examples into. I’ve tried various wordpress plugins, I also tried using flock, but that didn’t work.

Another problem I found was that it seems impossible to post video to the blog using the online wordpress editor

Yesterday I was reading a blog post (I thought it was by Paul Boag but I can’t find it now) that mentioned Ecto.

Ecto is a feature-rich desktop blogging client for MacOSX and Windows, supporting a wide range of weblog systems, such as Blogger, Blojsom, Drupal, MovableType, Nucleus, TypePad, WordPress, and more.

I’ve already successfully posted video with Ecto, so now I just need to test to see if I can include html examples (ignore the code below)

<h1>test</h1> <p>blah</p>

Today I found this post which has links to a number of desktop blogging tools, so I’ll probably try a couple of others before I pay out for one
