Blog Editor Alternative

Ever since I switched to Windows Live Writer I’ve been wondering whether there is another Blog Editor which is as powerful and good as Windows Live Writer…..But I was not able to find any other software which was as good and efficient as the WLW itself.

First I got the Scribefire Addon which had all the decent features but there was no setting of the posting time and the proper pinging to famous search engines like Google Blog search and many others. ( Still it was usable for Quick Blogging) But the Ultimate disadvantage of Scribefire was that it could not load the categories created in the blogger blog. So I had to find some other software.I started testing various software recommended in this and this.

Even good blog editors like W.bloggar and Qumana which has many of the features could not load the categories from Blogger.( Might be the fact that Since I’m new to blogging I could not configure it properly for my blog). But anyways even if thats the case it makes it very difficult to configure…….. After checking all these I was about to conclude that there is no Blog Editor which is as good as Windows Live Writer.

But yesterday I downloaded a software called Zoundry Raven. It was the kind of a competitor that might give some competition in terms of features. The categories could be loaded for Blogger also and it had all the other features that the other blog editos have and most of the features that Microsoft Windows Live Writer has. Very easy to configur and very easy to use…. It can also import the settings from Windows Live Writer which was a very good feature and which other editors did not have.

I’m testing still testing it so could not say much about it…… But I’ll keep posting bout my experience with the software.

Update 1( July 10,2008): Zoundry Raven has a lot of bugs. One is that it does not keep updating the labels used in blogger and also cnnot use the save as draft feature. Publishing a post on multiple blogs is also a problem using that.

So switched back to Windows Live Writer which do not have any of these problems.

Also using a lot of Scribefire for quick Blogging directly from Firefox.
