Answering Comments

I write all my posts in Ecto, a super-cool Mac-only blog writing tool, and get my comments via email to my gmail account.  In short I never go to my actual blog-site.  It's always good to get comments on posts and mostly, I like to reply.  There has to be an easier way than logging in to my own blog and leaving myself a comment.

There just does not seem to be an easy way - am I missing a trick here; help needed.

copydude responded to my Clapton post suggesting that Clapton's guitar solo was going to shake the murals off the wall of St. Basil's.



“ Andrei Batalov, head of the cathedral's restoration commission, believes that . . . Moscow's construction boom is not the only threat facing the cathedral. He said it is also being put under strain from rock concerts on Red Square. The music is frequently 100 times above the legal norm, he said, and St Basil's intricately restored wall murals and icons are at risk of peeling off the walls as a result.”

If that was the reason then a statement that there would be no more rock concerts on Red Square as a result then suggestions of impropriety could be withdrawn.

I reiterate my previous statement based on some inside information that Clapton's people got fed up with being mucked around.

Thanks for the tip about Ecto. I did not realise it was a Mac pack.

Since there isn't a lot of the blog world that's Mac friendly, I initially tried iBlog, only to discover that it has 'server issues'. In fact, I wasted about a month on iBlog.

Blogger doesn't support Safari and Firefox Mac isn't yet 100%, so I ended up using Wordpress for blogging.

I have tried Ecto for a couple of days now. It is certainly much easier and quicker to edit in the Ecto console than in a browser. Only two comments - it doesn't recognise your Wordpress pages, only the main blog. And you can't mix typesizes in a post. Maybe this will be addressed in later versions. But, the license is only 17 dollars, so who's complaining - even if you only use it for drafts.

Thanks again for the tip.

I share your Mac browser issues - I have dumped Firefox entirely after it started eating my CPU cycles, Safari I use when nothing else works - Camino is the browser for me - small footprint and does what it says on the box.
