  1. Nice list of tools. I’ve used Windows Live Writer before but i don’t think that those tools can make us more productive or efficient. As new CMS like WordPress and Blogger already have most features. Though, those may be helpful for some other Bloggers.
    Thanks and Regards.

  2. I just built up a WP blog, and I’m surely going to try WB Editor 3 Tool as it looks great! Never knew about these desktop tools for blogging. Awesome information!
