Nearly three months ago I made the jump from PC to Mac. At first it was awkward…I’m so used to a large keyboard and using a mouse that transitioning to a Macbook was difficult. The keys are very low profile; there’s no numeric keypad; and I don’t have a Macmouse (I think I just made up a new word here!) so I use the touchpad.
I left my PC laptop up and running right next to my Macbook for two reasons. One: There are a lot of applications that I use on the PC that aren’t available on the Mac, or that I don’t want to pay for all over again in another version. Two: It gives Hubby a place to check the weather, our portfolio, etc. without pushing me off my laptop. Doesn’t stop him from grumbling about how slow the PC is, but that’s another blog post in itself.
One of those applications is Windows Live Writer, without which I can’t imagine creating a blog post. And for some strange reason (jealousy, perhaps?) Microsoft hasn’t come out with a Mac version of Live Writer.
So when I decide it’s time to update my blog, I slide my chair over and wake up the PC. And wait. Grrrrr…. And when Live Writer is finally up and running, I’m so awkward now on the PC keyboard that it feels like I’ve gone back to using a manual typewriter. I’ve really become a Mac lover, folks.
I haven’t found another application for the Mac to replace Live Writer yet, so I thought I would throw it out there to my Internet peeps who are also Mac converts.
What software do you Mac people use for for writing your blog posts?
I know I can just use Blogger itself, but I got so spoiled with Live Writer, that I just don’t WANNA!
And here ends Excuse #1 for why I haven’t been blogging.
P.S. I’ve missed you!
