One year plus a few weeks using MarsEdit for blogging #TBT

Posted By on February 8, 2024

This probably should be a Tech Friday post, but since a year has passed since starting to use MarsEdit 5 instead of Open Live Writer on MyDesultoryBlog, but MarEdit Post from January 2023I’m making this a ThrowBack Thursday #TBT post. 

After initially tinkering with the trial in January of 2023, I purchased a license and started using in full time. After upgrading my notebook with a new MacBook Air M2, there has been no reason to turn back. So far I’ve added a few custom macros to smooth out the glitches in the way I personally use it (differences from the now retired Microsoft LiveWriter) and find myself useing Copy’em more than ever for links and formating macros; I’m pretty happy with the software.

Red Sweater LogoDaniel Jalkut, the creator of MarsEdit has also been responsive and helpful with my questions and I’ve been increasingly tempted to add another app from  Red Sweater called FastScripts. Stay tuned.
