OS X equivalent to Windows Live Writer

I’ve decided to give OS X a more prominent role in my life – I’ve moved my Windows 8.1 Boot Camp partition into a VMWare Fusion VM and run it from within OS X now. There’s a few things I miss from Windows that I don’t want to boot up the VM for and one of those is Windows LiveWriter.

This post is a test from a OS X app named PixelPumper. It connected to my self-hosted WordPress site flawlessly and looks like it will support composition of blog posts before publishing them. I prefer software like this to editing in the browser if I can – it feels cleaner, can be done offline (usually) and can be less distracting.

PixelPlumper is free and is in the Mac store. It looks pretty handy and is worth checking out if you blog on a WordPress site.
