Offline blogging tools

I was looking for offline blogging tools this weekend, just to make sure I have a nice writing pad during those long PDC sessions šŸ™‚

After a bit of mostly unlucky research, I installed w.bloggar (v3.02). While the functionality of the tool is impressive, it lacks in a couple of areas that I hoped were covered. First of all, there’s no WYSIWYG editing. That surprised me a bit, as I was under the impression that it would be a must have feature. Then trying to drag and drop images into the writing area would create an object (in the OLE sense) instead of just an <img> link. Given the settings panel where you set up the FTP info for upload, I hoped I could just drop an image and then the software would take care of removing the local drive path, replace it with the one in the FTP settings and finally upload the image to the FTP server.

Maybe I’m not using it correctly, but it doesn’t seem to work.

Anyone has another suggestion for a blog WYSIWYG editor with drag and drop capabilities? Basically same as w.bloggar, only with these two features added šŸ™‚

Or is this an opportunity to write such a tool?
