Here I present 5 best free blogging clients. These free blogging tools make blogging an extremely pleasurable experience.
A blogging client is a tool that mostly runs on your desktop which lets you create a blog article and post it onto your blog through certain interfacing. In other words it allows you to write your posts even when you are off-line and you can post it anytime when you go online next.
Here are the best free blogging clients.
Windows Live Writer is one of the best blogging client software freely available. You can add and share your thoughts, photos and videos on any web log service such as Blogger, TypePad, WordPress etc. The package includes an IM feature too.
Some of the features of Windows Writer include multiple platform supporting, API Customization, spell checking, adding tags, support for PicasaWeb & Flickr and many more. Just download and install Windows Live Writer and within 2 minutes you can avail all these features to write a great blog post.
If you are customizing your blog with Writer, then you can view your article in your blog’s background theme and can have the exact look-and-feel. Through the older version of the software looked pretty slow in uploading videos, the latest version have managed to avoid that.
Only grudge that I have with Windows Live Writer is that it does not works on Linux, even when using Wine.
