    The task of maintaining blog and promoting it involves a consistent and even increasing workload. Plugins, automation tools can reduce the burden to a great extent. This is one such tool that can help bloggers to make the article publishing task lot more easier. Thanks for sharing. There are so many editors to choose from. It would have been much better had the author rated each of these tools based in the flexibility, ease of use, and usability factors. Perhaps, I will start with open source one. Thanks.

  4. That’s a great list you put together. I’ve tried a number of these and plan to download and try a few I haven’t. But I always go back to Windows Live Writer. I’m still getting used to the 2011 version but it’s the best I’ve found for new and experienced bloggers.

  5. Great list of editors thanks for helping us see some of the many choices out there. I really had no idea there were so many. I guess I’ve got my work cut out for me as I’ve not really settled on one yet. But I know after reading the information in your article that’s something that will soon change.
