I recently stumbled upon a program I thought would be useful to me. I found BlogDesk and downloaded it to my system. I like to think I'm above average with technology knowledge and installing programs so I worked to set up the information for my blog account.
I found the interface basic yet extremely easy to work with. I was really excited about working with it because I like to jump on my desktop and write immediate things. It looked like I could set up drafts, too. I could imagine opening up the window, shooting a few posts to my blog as drafts, and having a few easy days of blogging.
Not so. I couldn't get the program to work with my WordPress blog. I have mine set up on personal hosting and I put all relevant information into the fields. I then tried to get items from my blog (categories) but it did not work. I also tried working around the interface and setting up an account incomplete only to edit the areas I was worried were working wrong. It still did not work.
I'm going to continue to research the reasons behind my issue...but I would like to know if the program worked for others. It seems like a wonderful idea and I would love to put it to use!
