July 2nd, 2009

WordPress provides users with various ways to post content to their blogs, the best part is that it does not limit users to write their views.

However we all use different methods to post content to our blog and it would be interesting to know which is the most used way to post content to a WordPress blog.

Here is a short poll, please choose the method you use frequently to post content to your blog, you can select more than one options, also don’t forget to tell us why you use a certain method to post content to your blog.

    Vote for desktop app. I only use Windows Live Writer for all blogs I wrote.

  2. MrCorey (4 comments.) says:

    I’ve not written frequently enough to consider more than the built in editor (and sometimes quickpress). Maybe one of these days…

  3. Kyle Maxwell (1 comments.) says:

    So far, I haven’t seen a particular reason to use something outside of the administrative interface. Why should I use something else?

  4. Andrew (1 comments.) says:

    I mainly start a post with QuickPress, usually because thats the first page of the admin panel I get to after logging in, however, I will do the first save in QuickPress, and then continue editting within the Post Editor window.

    I’m really surprised that the wordpress dashboard is in the lead. I use MS Live writer. I like being able to compose offline and then upload it when its ready. Just my 2 cents.
    The final results will be interesting.

  6. Alexander Moya says:

    I use Windows Live Writer, by far the best desktop app I’ve used for posting.

    I use windows live writer,it’s very nice!

  8. Mitchell Allen (1 comments.) says:

    I voted Desktop, because I prepare all my posts in Microsoft Word.
    I should have added WordPress Dashboard Write, since I paste the finished post there.

    I need to explore some alternatives, as this method is time-consuming and inefficient. I recently downloaded BlogDesk, but haven’t installed it, yet.

    I run 3 blogs, two in Spanish and one in English. All of them are written under Windows Live Writer, since I blooged on Live Spaces. The English version of WLW is pretty good, images and tables are very well translated into WP.

    Also the tag and categories managing is very powerful. In the other side, is lack of plugins but I have Wp for the last edit before publishing.

    I don´t like WP editor, it´s still poor.

    I feel more comfortable using the dashboard write, I like all the features. I have not tried to write a post using any of the other applications, maybe I should try :)

  11. Larry Olin Horn (1 comments.) says:

    I use the dashboard write panel to only set tags, etc., and post; I don’t use it to write content. I compose everything in a separate editor and just paste the final content into the write panel.

    It is somewhat ironic that I discovered Windows Live Writer at almost the same time as WordPress 2.8 was released. WP 2.8 addresses some of the slow processing times experienced in the admin area, but having used Windows Live Writer for a few of weeks now, there is no turning back for me.

    There are a few little quirks with Windows Live Writer (like adding categories to WordPress) that give me the odd problem, but overall it is a great little app.

    WordPress dashboard gives you the maximum options for posts, to formulate your views.

  14. Ipstenu says:

    I never use quickpress since you can’t easily set categories, and I use those to managed featured news. I sometimes use my iPhone for ‘breaking’ news.

  15. Fernando Tellado (1 comments.) says:

    WordPress Write Panel, Quickpress for asides and iPhone app when I’m away of my Mac ;)

  16. Alfonso M. Corral (1 comments.) says:

    I used the desktop application for writing while I look for links, images and other opinions with the browser.

  17. Tadd Mencer (9 comments.) says:

    I’m a Live Writer guy. I also have clients use it since it’s easier for nubs to figure out and use. Heck, when you can edit posts and pages in a desk top app who needs to log in other than maintaining the site/updates?

    From dashboard WP-admin, I post every day updating my blog, thank for the information.

  19. vbb (1 comments.) says:

    can’t live without Windows Live writer.. Being a newbie it feels somehow difficult to use WP dashboard write panel due to alignment and image formatting.WLW makes it quite easy for me.

  20. T-Law (1 comments.) says:

    WP Write Panel for me this is simple.

  21. John (2 comments.) says:

    I use Ecto to write posts and pages offline. Why? 1) It allows me to write and post to all my sites, regardless of whether they run on WordPress or Drupal, from within a single application with a consistent user interface. 2) Using a client-side application allows me to use a script to grab content from my current browser tab and reformat it according to my preferred style before inserting it in the editor window. (For example, if I got to the page I’m posting an entry about by clicking on a link, my main ‘post to weblog’ script picks up the referrer URL for the page and inserts the URL in a ‘Via’ link at the foot of my draft post crediting the source of the link. It’s easy enough to do manually, but it’s nicer to have my computer do it for me.) 3) Ecto makes it very easy to set up keyboard shortcuts to insert commonly-used snippets of HTML.

    I use quick press and wordpress dashboard write. :) Sometimes, I post via Mobile.

  23. Rich (1 comments.) says:

    I have a fear of being hacked so I tend to do things the old fashioned way. The WP dashboard suits me just fine.

    Windows Live Writer for one, Blogjet – only out of habit – for my other one. I plan on eventually using WLW for both, for it’s ease of use and image handling. I love it. I’ve never felt entirely comfortable using the WordPress panel even though I know it’s much improved from the time I was using it and lost an entire post. I am more comfortable blogging offline and uploading when I’m ready. WLW just does it well and simply.
