WordPress Desktop App

I’m in love with the new WordPress desktop app for Windows. I just downloaded and installed it yesterday, and I can see myself using it for blogging quite a bit.

I was stoked when I saw that WordPress.com upgraded the functionality of their blogging tools for self-hosted WordPress sites like mine a few weeks ago. It was lacking a number of important options, such as Categories and Tags, which meant I could never fully publish an article straight from their content creation tool – Categories are essential to my blog’s layout!

Now, the most important thing to me is accessability to information about all of my self-hosted sites in one place. A month back, my place of employment has decided to put a pretty powerful web filter that blocks anything that remotely looks like a site dealing with games. This includes a number of blogs I follow… and my own blog.

In fact, most of my creative sites run as a subdirectory of Sygnus.org, which means I’m blocked from about 90% of my sites for most of the day. The only access I have to them, even writing a lunch-break post, has been through WordPress.com.

So, to have WordPress as an app in this situation is even better!
