I usually write my posts offline. When I first start blogging, I would write my posts on Word, then copy and paste the text to Blogger. When I switch to WordPress, I would copy and paste the text to the WordPress Editor.
That method worked fine, except that sometimes the style of my text on a few of my posts do not end up looking like the way they should. The reason is that Word often insert its own styling to the text. And when I am in a hurry, I do not remember to check for it in the html view. So I have a few posts on my blog that are styled a little differently than the rest. But with over 150 posts up on my site, I find it a little too daunting to check each of them to correct the styling.
I started using Windows Live Writer last year. I like it, but like most Microsoft products, it takes a little too long to open the program on my old laptop. There is a little bit too much under the engine for someone who deals mostly with text like me. There are plugins for Adsense, Amazon links, etc. And so I often find myself wondering if there is something simpler out there.
Since last month, I stated using BlogDesk to write my posts. This program is just a simple editor. I like how easy it is to use the program. But I do not like the fact that it does not check your spelling for you as you write (you can forget about grammar check). I actually have move my mouse and click on the little spell check button on the menu bar. And being a little on the lazy side, well, that is a problem for me.
So here I am jumping between Windows Live Writer and BlogDesk depending on my mood each time I write. Sometimes I even start a post in one program and copy and paste the text to the other program before I hit the publish button. What a waste of time!
Do any other blogger have this problem? Or is just me?
