We conducted a small poll recently, where we asked WordPress users the method they use to post content to their blogs. The poll is now closed and here are the results of the poll.
And the winner and best way to post content to your blog is the WordPress Dashboard Write Panel, coming in a distant 2nd is desktop applications like Windows Live Writer.
So why do people prefer using the write panel? There could be several reasons for this, the most important one I can think of is that, when writing posts using the write panel users have access to the features plugins provide them with.
Another reason I think is not many users may be aware of the availability of desktop applications for blogging. Also many people may really feel comfortable blogging using the write panel too.
On the other hand desktop applications like WLW do provide users with a familiar interface and the flexibility to blog from their desktops.
What are your views on this poll results? Do let me know.
