You've probably gotten used to using your browser-based administration panel to write blog posts using Wordpress, Typepad, Blogger, and the rest of those blog publishing platforms. But, when you think about it, you're really just putting up with the quirks and other annoyances of these platforms because, up until now, you thought that you had no choice in the matter. Today, there's BlogJet!

BlogJet gives you the freedom to craft your blog entries in a way that's more intuitive and comfortable than ever before. Best of all, BlogJet supports all of the leading blog services, so you can start using BlogJet as an authoring tool without missing a beat.

What's better about BlogJet? I am so glad you asked! For one thing, the familiar WYSIWYG editor lets you format your posts just as you would in Word, without resorting to the awkward use of the occasional HTML tag. And, just like a word processor, you'll never look like an idiot thanks to the spellcheck function, and there's even Auto Replace that will replace often-used terms with substitute text, or even links!

Image management is seamless with BlogJet, allowing you to insert photos into posts, resize them, and create thumbnails. The same is true with Flickr photos and Youtube videos (both supported natively), and with file attachments - just attach documents and files to your posts, and they're shared instantly with your readership!

More than just another blog authoring application, BlogJet comes complete with the ability to search through your posts, a word counter, and blog statistics!

But perhaps best of all?

You can work up blog posts without an internet connection!

Tom Colvin I downloaded this program earlier in order to give it a full evaluablion before purchase. I'm glad I did, as I've encountered a problem.

BlogJet seems not to support sub-categories -- instead all categories and subcategories are listed together alphabetically. My blog rlies on a well-developed subcatgory listing -- so selecting the proper sub-category is very inconvenient in this program.

FYI, I had also to configure my WordPress installation to accept post from an external blog client. Easy enough to do if you know where to find that setting. Also BlogJet seems NOT to support FireFox 3.0 -- Firefox rejected the BlogJet plug-in as incompatible.

Looks to me like BlogJet is lagging way behind in its development. I'm sad to see that, as the functionality of BlogJet looks enticing.

Maybe the dev3eloper can provide some solutions to the matters mentioned above.

Dmitry Chestnykh Tom, thanks for your comment! APIs we use in BlogJet 2.x to connect to blogs don't allow receiving the tree structure of categories. WordPress has an extended API for this, which we'll add in the future versions. (I should point out that, of course, you can still use any categories, they are just represented as a list rather than a tree in BlogJet.)

Dmitry Chestnykh You can download extension for Firefox 3 here: http://www.codingrobots.c.../firefox3/

Currently we work on full Unicode support for BlogJet and once it's done, we'll push changes (including the updated Firefox extensions) directly into the installation.

Tom Colvin Dmitry, thanks for your very specific response to my comment. I will keep your program in my list of those to follow. Once the category tree is fully supported, I'll take another look. I must say that your product looks to be very good. I've used three different blog clients, and yours seems to be more powerful and easier to implement than the others. Except, of course, that the one I currently use DOES support category trees -- so I'll stick with it for the time being.

Glen Coulthard This is a nice product; and I even blogged about it last year. However, it's been a long time since an updated version has been released and I'm a bit concerned about the level of ongoing effort re: feature enhancements and support.

Dmitry Chestnykh Glen Coulthard: No worries, we have one more developing working on it right now, and soon there will be an update.

Dmitry Chestnykh Sorry, read it as "one more developer".

Stephen Kreyling Is this product still be updated or is 2.61 the last version. Will you be adding table support?
