MarsEdit brings desktop blog editing to your Mac

I’ve been using MarsEdit for about 12 months now. It means I can draft and prepare articles for publishing later and don’t need a internet network connection. I also use Scrivener to write all my articles and then just copy / paste to MarsEdit to publish.

MarsEdit works with WordPress

MarsEdit works really well with WordPress, though you can use it with many other blogging platforms like Blogger for instance.

MarsEdit allows you to easily:

  • Create Drafts and save locally
  • Set a future publishing date
  • Set a status for your post such as Draft or Publish
  • Add custom fields for images
  • Drag n drop images
  • Edit already published posts
  • Set warnings to prevent you publishing without adding any category or tags
