w.bloggar 3.0 released!

If you haven’t visited wbloggar.com recently, I suggest you drop what you’re blogging and surf on over for the newest release of w.bloggar v3.00. As you might suspect, I’ve already been there and have installed Marcello’s latest and greatest creation. In fact, I’m blogging with it right now! In fact, I’m so impressed, I think I might paypal him a buck or twenty for the excellent effort.

While it does mean you’re using a client-based application to perform a task you could just as easily execute with your browser, there are some advantages to w.bloggar that could, in fact will make blogging by yourself … and church staff a bit easier. For example, by working with a client-side application, there are some features, such as spell checking, or the ability to define multiple blogs, support for proxies and https that can save some bandwidth, provide some security and generally save your sanity when dealing with buggy browsers.
