Easy Blog Posting by ECTO: Why You Should Check It Out!

What is ECTO?


Ecto is a desktop blogging client for MAC and Windows that is compatible with most major blogging platforms including Blogger, WordPress and Typepad, amongst many others.

Why I Started Using ECTO.

I switched from Blogger to WordPress for two reasons. One was for more flexibility with my template and the other was for a better tool for writing my blog posts. Well I’m sorry to say that even WordPress, while much better than Blogger still has some kludginess in it’s text editor. I need the WYSIWYG feature. I found my holy grail of text editors: ECTO from a recommendation by ProBlogger, Darren Rowse.

Why You Should Try ECTO:
