Adding Blog Posts More Easily

A free program I found has made it easier for Vicki and I to write and publish new posts on Vicki’s Voice, and might be something you could use if you have a blog and want to simply add new posts. You still go to your blog to add comments, etc.

The program is BlogDesk, and we’ve been using it with our Windows computers for the past couple of months, and it’s working well for us on both Windows 7 and Windows XP. The only thing I haven’t been able to do so far is add a caption to a photo itself like I can if I add a photo through the blog site itself. (I’ll keep exploring the program.)

Once you’ve downloaded and installed the program, you set it to connect to your blog. The BlogDesk website has instructions for doing that.

Here’s a screenshot of this post as I was writing it with BlogDesk:

Let me know if you try it out, or if you have any questions. I’ll try to answer them.

    Colette, the program I wrote about helps with posting the main items on a blog. I’m almost ready to open a Forums area here on Vicki’s Voice which can help people share experiences and information with one another. Thank you for introducing yourself on the Guestbook page.
