Typically when I start writing a blog post I’ll open up Word Press to get things started. I’ll just use their editing window pushing my ideas out. I thought that was how most people published until I talked recently to another writer who mentioned that she uses text edit. She also mentioned that there’s other blogging tools like MarsEdit. Apparently it plugs into WordPress though I couldn’t get it to work with my old version of version. In any case I’ve been using OmmWriter for a couple projects which has an elegant canvas to write with. So as I continue evolving how Design Notes is used, I’ll try to pull away from just using the WP UI and observe how my writing changes (hopefully for the better).
For those that publish online, what sort of process do you go through? Is it simply opening up the blog and writing, or do you use a different format and copy + paste the text in afterwards?
