I am looking for the name of a good Blog Authoring Tool

All,

Can anyone point me towards a good (would like it to be free) blog Authoring tool?  I am tired of creating the posts in notepad then having to paste them into the editor for this site.

Looking for help.

Thanks,

Have you looked at Windows Live Writer [1] or Qumana[2]? Both pretty good and feature rich blog editors.

+1 for Windows Live Writer -- extensible platform as well for plugins - http://www.flickr4writer.com is an example :-)

I just started using WLW last week and I like it a lot (though I have experienced a problem with uploading images to an ftp server.)

I use Windows Live Writer for my blog and really like it.  My favorite feature is spell checking (something I need a lot <g>).

Hope this helps,

Scott

Looks like Windows Live Writer is winning by a landslide.  I will be downloading it tonight.  

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Windows live writer is pretty good. And people are developing some nice plugins. Like CS gallery plugin:

Although it's not free, I prefer BlogJet over WLW.  I have been using BlogJet for almost 2 years now.

I, too, prefer BlogJet, and the price isn't so bad b/c it's a great product.  I've personally spoken with the author and he is a nice guy.

I've also used w.bloggar, which doesn't have as good of an interface as BlogJet (IMHO) but it is free.

Performancing (now Spitfire) at www.performancing.com does it for me...especially when I have many things to pull off the web as part of my blog entry...
