How do you do blog?

Blogging tools.  There are a number of them out there.  I have received a few requests from people wanting to know what I use to write this blog.  For the most part, I use the editor built into WordPress.  It works well, auto saves drafts and obviously, makes publishing entries a breeze.

However, when I am working on something, like an episode of The Bleeding Rose, I use another wonderful tool.  It’s called Dark Room (http://they.misled.us/dark-room).  It’s a clone of the Whiteroom (http://hogbaysoftware.com/products/writeroom) application for the Mac.  It allows you to block out your entire screen so that the only thing you are looking at is the text you are working on.  It’s a great tool and I do use it when I encounter the writer’s block from time to time.

Another tool that I will use every now and again is the blogging feature in digg.  If you don’t already have a digg account, head over to http://www.digg.com and set one up.  It’s useful in keeping up to date on what’s hot on the web as well as giving peeps to your favorite blog.  When you submit a digg or digg an item, you can blog your dugg item right there.

There are a number of blogging tools out there that make blogging fun and productive.  What tools do you use?
