Blogging with a Mac Part 2 – Blogo


So, last night, I started out looking for a great blog editor for use on my Mac. My first attempt was a bust but the second attempt was not bad. I wasn’t doing back flips for having to pay for an editor I’m not crazy about but the editor got the job done with minimal fuss. Tonight, I am giving my next candidate, Blogo from DrinkBrainJuice.com

Download and setup was pretty straightforward. The initial startup of the app helps you get your blog configured or will help you create a new one. You can also setup your YouTube, Flikr, and other accounts for easy import to your blog.

Basic blog entry is easy enough. The editor is a WYSIWYG with a button to toggle back and forth between html markup and rich text. Pre-configured categories can be easily added as well as adding new ones ad-hoc. Media can be easily added by dragging it to a drop box. A nice feature is that you can do simple editing on pictures that you add. Nice touch. Finally, all the buttons have tool tips making using the application incredibly intuitive.

This is really an easy application to use and I am very happy with it. With a 21 day evaluation period, you have plenty of time to kick the tires before plunking down $25 for the unnagged version.

Give them a try. Go to http://www.DrinkBrainJuice.com/blogo and check out all the features (most not mentioned here)l.

This blog was written using Blogo.

UPDATE: After posting, I had a little trouble aligning the picture at the top of the this blog. The picture edit feature didn’t really help me much. Instead of trying to fix it, I left it the way the app put it up. meh.

  1. Thanks, Ben. I wasn’t able to get the graphic to sit as nicely as I wanted but in fairness, I grabbed the graphic and threw it on there quick and dirty. I will say that with all the editors that I am reviewing, I keep coming back to blogo.
