Now that I have WordPress setup on a separate website, I am ready to attempt to use another program for writing the posts. Here is my first attempt at finding such a program.
Options from Ubuntu Software Center:
In order to use these, I did have to go to the settings on my blogs and enable the XML-RPC feature. In the admin tool, I went to Settings > Writing. Under Remote Publishing, there is a setting for it.
Blog Entry Poster worked pretty easily once I got the RPC enabled. Drivel was a little more difficult, but I found a post that helped. I just had to use MoveableType.
I think I like QTM the best out of the three. One feature I like is that it supports multiple accounts/blogs:
Another feature I like is that you can save/upload it as a draft. So, what I will probably do is write and complete most of the post from QTM. Then, I will go back and proof it online in WordPress.
QTM does seem to support adding images although, I don’t think I have tried it yet. It doesn’t seem to support WYSIWYG editing though. That isn’t that big of a deal for me with simple posts. It does have a preview button.
