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?

  1. I love Ubuntu. I have had it installed on a Dell laptop since Oct 2005 (Breezy Badger) and have upgraded it all along (now at Jaunty Jackalope). When my neighbors, who are college students, didn't have money for a new computer, I told them to get an old laptop from a family member and I would rehab it for them. I rehabbed it by wiping Windows into Hades and installing Ubuntu. They love it. I have heard them tell their friends that Ubuntu is much better and cheaper than Windows.Ok, I will stop now. I promise.
