Easy posting to multiple blogs with Ecto

A few readers have asked me around the traps to recommend some good software to make posting to blogs a bit easier and faster.

I use a lovely bit of shareware called Ecto. It is cross platform and plugs into almost any known blogging platform and offers a swag of useful features especially if you are like me and post to several blogs regularly.

Although WordPress has a manageable backend, where Ecto really comes in handy is in drafting multiple posts. On one of my blogs (not Fresh + New), I may start writing a post and then leave it as a draft for several days whilst writing another two drafts. Ecto keeps them all securely on my laptop ready to go. Also, it has the rather essential as-you-go spell checking.

Thanks Seb, looks good. I’ll definitely use it at home on my Mac. We’ll look into it at work too. We’ve a couple of new blogs now in development for other exhibitions. One will launch soon (‘Focus’). The whole editing thing has been a learning experience for us in WordPress and Ecto looks to have quite a few features that we’d find really useful for future blogging. It is all really new to us and a very rich learning experience as I’m sure you’d agree.
