Hi all,

We've been blogging to Blog Engine for 2 years using Windows Live Writer.

Now we have a new editor - she wants to do similar, but she works from a Mac running OS X (v10.4.11).  We tried a couple of utilities, e.g. Blogo, but no joy.

So I thought I'd ask everyone here. Any ideas what we can use to publish from a Mac?

Thanks all!

I'd suggest either Ecto or MarsEdit.  I have tried them both and they worked well.  (Neither are quite up to par with Live Writer with all those plug ins however.)  Also, I've heard TextMate can be used but I've never tried it.

We had the same question come up one day. We looked at MarsEdit, but found out that nothing compares to WLW. We decided to go with VMWare Fusion and virtualize a Windows machine with WLW in it on our mac.

Thanks very much for the suggestions guys! We are trying out MarsEdit – I’ll post back here when I find out how well we’re getting along with that.
