Exploring Ubuntu Blogging Solutions

Since I don’t have a valid Windows 7 license for my Asus 1000HE, I’ve decided to use Ubuntu Netbook Remix on this netbook, and I’m starting to really enjoy it. Of course, there are a few applications that I’m sorely missing, especially Windows Live Writer, but overall it’s been an enjoyable little experiment.

As such, I’m checking out different Ubuntu blogging clients for offline blogging. Of course I could just use my browser, but I find that offline clients are often a much better approach, specifically for a netbook. I previously gave Bilbo a shot, but unfortunately, it doesn’t completely fill the gap. For starters, Bilbo has formatting issues that cause lists and other special spacing to get all messed up when you transfer from it to WordPress, and that’s not going to work for me.

Today I’m trying out a new one – Lekhonee for Gnome. Thus far, it seems decent, though I have already noticed that I can only be logged into a single blog at a time. I normally manage 3 different WordPress blogs, so that will take a bit of getting-used-to. Aside from that, this seems to be a nice client, with category and tag support, as well as images and other niceties.

What other blogging clients do you recommend for Ubuntu systems?
