Talk about serendipity! I can count on one or two paws the number of times I've clicked on a Google AdSense ad. But in reading my inbox in Gmail, someone wriote about blog writing, and there was a link to Free Web Word Processor for your Blog.
Â I bit and look what I got!Â
Â it's a web blog editor (not just a weblog editor, it's a web weblog editor) with a "this is what MS word would look like if they really had a premonition of the web or took a ride on the clue train" — yes, like other web document editors, you get the rich text tools offered by TinyMCE under the hood.Â
I just grabbed a screenshot uploaded to flickr, and can post from my flickr right into the editing screen. Same for YouTube videos. Â
Â I'm not in grand need of a better editor (i still use ecto and often just pound them out quickly in WordPress). The one thing most editors lack is the ability to assign cateogries (this has "tags", ecto does categories), and none I have seen allow you to set the slug (shorter URL) or edit custom fields. But those are alpha geek needs. Or beta, I forget.
oops, WriteToMyBlog allows the category assignment at the publish stage.Â
Â An interesting feature is that WriteToMyBlog works with a number of blog platforms, and you can write a post, and publish to different blogs or platforms. Hey, that's just XML doing its queit magic under the hood, eh?
