Offline Writers

I currently write my fiction posts in Word before posting them through the Blogger browser interface, I am aware however of Blogging Clients and / or Offline Clients.

I woud like to start using one, it would make adding pictures, links and the links easier, plus there's less chance of losing a post.

I'd still compose fiction in word, but would post through a Client.

I've found:

Macjournal
Marsedit
Qumana
and Ecto

What do people use, I'm on a Mac, but what's out there for both?

I also type my stories in Word then just copy and paste. I've tried Qumana, but I find it much easier to just post it directly through Blogger. And I do have Beta now, so I'm not sure if Qumana will even work anymore.

I've been using Ecto for almost a year now and find it very useful. I don't use it to post everything, but I find it very useful in formatting and adding tags, the tag library feature is awesome. Sometimes I'll write a post in something else, then copy it into Ecto to add the tags and then post it. The only thing I don't like is that it won't post pictures to Blogger, it will to other platforms like Word Press, but not blogger. But it runs on my Mac, so that's good enough for me.

It also serves as one of my archives, the other being email archive (each post is emailed to me) and then an off-line text archive I've created.

I still use Word, but I don't save everything that I post. I kind of divide stuff I'll keep, like fiction, on disk. I don't use email to have everything sent to me, currently as it stands with 677 posts, it would frazzle me email wise.

I haven't had time to look into the various programs that are, maybe those (and how they're added/downloaded) can be added to the tut section?

man i'm so not into any of that. i just write it online and occasionally i lose a bit and get irritated and think 'damm there must be a better way' and then i continue.

and i use unix... so there's probably something i can install but i have no idea waht.

I'm experimenting with "Performancing for Firefox" (http://performancing.com) though it hasn't yet beaten writing in a text editor for me. It's promising, though.

Yep, on a mac too.
I've tried both Ecto and Macjournal. Macjournal is really more oriented to being a diary on your computer.
I liked Ecto, but didn't use it to purely post for the same reasons artful dodger gave.
I use now, I like the grammer check especially. I did like the idea of the tagging in other programs, but I got a widget that I put in my dashboard that works great:TTG (Technorati Tag Generator)
