If, for some reason, you don’t like the editor of your blogging tool (WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal, etc), you have a few options to consider.Â Those of you hosing your own blogs, can always try a plugin or two.Â WordPress, for example, has a number of plugins which either add pieces of functionality or completely replace the default editor.Â Alternatively, you can try an external editor.Â That is, you can use a piece of software which is not a part of your blogging platform, for writing posts.Â There are Firefox plugins (ScribeFire, Xinha Here!), standalone applications (w.bloggar, Windows Live Writer, and more, and more), and web services (Performancing.com) that do this.
Today I was reminded, that one can even use Google Docs for this purpose.Â Create a new document or spreadsheet, edit it all you want and then publish it straight into your blog.Â That’s how easy it is.Â (You’ll need to configure a few simple settings the first time you do so though).Â If it sounds interesting, check this post at Blogopreneur.com fordetailed instructions.Â If it sounds interesting, but you are not sure if your blogging platform is supported, check out this list of supported platforms.
Me? I am happy with WordPress built-in editor.
