While looking for an alternative to the default WordPress WYSIWYG editor, I found that it’s possible to post entries directly from Word 2007. This works over XML-RPC protocol and provides a much nicer editing interface. We’ll play around and discover the capabilities as we need them.

I also played around a bit with BlogDesk… and inserted this of my eldest son checking out the fog on the Pacific Ocean somewhere between Monterey and Big Sur. This was a surrealistic scene overlooking a 40 or 50 foot sheer cliff.

BlogDesk is a bare bones editor with a somewhat clunky interface – especially if you tend to update posts.  Word, on the other hand, presents a familiar interface, but seems a little quirky – especially when inserting and positioning images.
