Have I mentioned lately how much I love my Mac? Well, it is true. I do. And I love learning new ways to use it. Which brings me to this test of ecto blogging software. Since I became a blogger almost five years ago, I have composed my blogs within the control panel of my blogging service. It works fine most of the time, but there have been other times when Typepad has locked up/gone down/whatever and I’ve lost my entire post. Not a good feeling.
So yesterday I began researching different blogging software available for the Mac, and I settled on ecto for my first trial run. Supposedly when I’m finished writing this entry, I should be able to simply upload it to my blog with the click of a button. ecto is available for both the Mac and Windows, and it is reasonably priced at under $18. I’m using the 21 day free trial until I decide this is what I want. I’ll be sure and let you know my final verdict. I’m always looking for things that will streamline my life, not make it more complicated.
