Somehow this feels appropriate. It’s a chilly, dreary Minnesota Spring Monday, and I’m trying out a new blogging software called “Raven“. So far it seems slick and not prone to many of the bugs that plague a lot of other blogging software. I wish it themed the input area like your blog (like Windows Live Writer does). As for why I’m not just using Windows Live Writer, it just “felt clunky” to me. No actually concrete reason. I haven’t tried the 2009 version yet, and maybe I should, but so far I like this Raven program. Oh yeah, and I really like Open Source, which Windows Live Writer is not, and Raven is.
I could also make an Application Shortcut to my Post in WordPress page, or use the “WordPress This” bookmarklet, but an actual client is nice because it provides a way to go to one spot where I can post on ALL the blogs I have (four, not counting Twitter).
I’ll keep you posted (No pun intended) on how I like it. I’ll also make a post soon with an update on “everything else”.
