Thanks to Gnome Lad – fighter for Truth, Justice, and the American Way – I am making this post using a new toy. w.bloggar is a free application from Marcelo Cabral that tries to make writing blog posts as easy (or as hard) as using Microsoft Word.
The application sits between you and your blog publishing software. It provides a Word-like interface with all the little toolbar buttons for formating text and even has a spellchecker. w.bloggar is compatible with Blogger, b2, Nucleus, BigBlogTool, Blogworks XML, Blogalia, Drupal, and, of course, Movable Type.
Now you can make your posts look all purty without having to memorize all that pesky HTML stuff.
