Update 2: And the winner is, brace yourself, Microsoft! Yep, their Windows Live Writer is an awesome tool with lots of functionality and a nifty Firefox plugin. I know it’s hard to think of Microsoft as being cutting-edge in the world of blogging, but hat’s off to them! If I break it, I’ll update here.
Ok, so switching to WordPress is both exciting and a huge learning experience. Going from Blogger to WordPress is not that different from switching from a PC to a Mac. The experience has been made much more enjoyable with the help of Perfomancing’s great Firefox extension.
Of course, I’ve been aware of the tools Performancing has been putting together over the past couple of years, but never really gave them much attention. Having installed the Firefox extension for WordPress, and enjoying the fruits of their labor, I wanted to give them my thanks. The full featured blog editor is easy to use, packed with features, and makes it very easy to upload new posts, without ever leaving the page you are discussing. If you’ve not had a chance to check out Performancing, I recommend you take a look. They also offer a blog statistics package and an ad network.
