I ran across my friend Tris Hussey at Blog Business Summit and it reminded me of a company for which Tris works, Qumana. They produce a desktop blog editor that enables you to write and edit posts from your desktop. It can handle multiple blogs and you can even use it when you are offline, which is a nice plus. You simply save your blog posts to your hard drive and upload them whenever you go online.
The interface is very user-friendly, with easy formatting options, Technorati tagging, and image uploading. There is even an ad module called Q Ads that allows you to insert ads of your choice. It’s a pay-per-click model. You insert the ad, people click on it, and you make money. Pretty sweet really.
I’m trying out the blog editor on one of my blogs and will let you know how I like it. Oh, lest I forget to mention it, the blog editor is free to download.
