BlogThing is a simple blogging application for the non-technical person (Grandma). It contains just enough features to allow the person with a single blog to make posts containing different fonts, coloured text and images. If you can write an email you can now have a blog. It's that simple. For an example of what can be done using Blog Thing check out http://blog.danielparnell.com/

Blog Thing has only been tested against WordPress but it may work with other blog systems that support XML-RPC posting.

For the developer to release this as a 1.0.1 app is giving themselves to much credit for creating a real app.

The developers claim this as an aid for grandma, so you would think that the app would be both supper simple AND well though out. It is not.

This is the first app I have ever seen that did not have a Save item in the file menu. Close your working window, and you lose everything. No dialogs or warnings. Closing that window also quits the app, which is good, because it means you can drag it straight to the trash where it belongs at this point in its development.

I would rather use TextEdit to auto generate my HTML by using the Save As HTML functionality that is built in, then copy and paste that into my blog. The HTML is clean, and it has this incredible ability to behave as you would expect a Mac app to behave.
