The user interface isn’t as elegant as my current favorite, Ecto, but Bleezer is an otherwise excellent cross platform blogging tool that has the added benefit of being free. It’s java based so there’s an initial bit of sluggishness when it’s first launched but once it’s running it’s speedy. It also supports publishing to more blogging systems than any client I’ve seen to date, and it supports tagging for del.icio.us and Technorati. It’s also capable of downloading your current blog postings and keeping a local archive of them, which not all blogging tools can do. Setup was a breeze and it’s a tiny download. This is definitely worth checking out if you haven’t invested in a blogging tool yet or if you’re managing a lab or campus computer image and need a cross platform tool for consistency of user interface and ease of documentation.
