Monika Mundell of EasyWordPress.com has published an excellent article ( A Snapshot of several blog editors ) that briefly highlights the cream of the crop in terms of free blog editors. External blog editors are perfect to use if you are a mobile blogger or are having serious issues with TinyMCE. What ever the case may be, Monika has provided the information you’ll need to know to choose a blog editor that suits your tastes. Also, if you feel like paying some coin, the article also highlights a few different PAID FOR solutions.
So far, I’ve really enjoyed using the Scribefire Firefox Extension. This is one of the blog editors that Monika talks about in her post and it’s been a real time saver for me, especially when it’s tied directly into my WordPress powered blog through the awesome XML-RPC feature.
Do you use a third party blog editor? If so, which one is it and why do you prefer to use that program over the built in publisher?
