testing MarsEdit 4 for macOS

Here’s another option for writing posts while offline.

So far MarsEdit 4 looks inferior to the WordPress.com app for Mac.

I can’t seem to edit in HTML view. There are far fewer formatting options.

But if you want to check it out, look for MarsEdit 4 in the App store.

testing the WordPress.com APP

Instead of editing and posting online, the official desktop app let’s you work offline.

I’ve tried it in the past … and ended up going back to the traditional online interface.


linking Blog photos from Flickr and Google

The first version of the grapefruit is linked from my Flickr account.

This version of the same is linked from Google Photos.

Flickr does not store the photo on my site so it could be less reliable. Google sends a copy of the original so it’s less likely to fail.

Thanks Warren.

WHY I switched from Bluehost to WordPress.com

Finally. All my sites are on WordPress.com. Happy. Happy. 🙂

WordPress.com is a blog web hosting service provider owned by Automattic and powered by the open source WordPress software.

This website provides free blog hosting for registered users and is financially supported via paid upgrades, “VIP” services and advertising. …

Registration is not required to read or comment …

Some notable clients include CNN, CBS, BBCReuters, Sony, Fortune.com and Volkswagen. It is estimated that more than 40% of internet bloggers use WordPress as their publishing platform. ..

I’ve been sending money to Bluehost every month for years. It is still rated one of the best hosts though I’ve been dissatisfied from the start.

Bluehost sites frequently go down.

When you inquire why, they blame the customer. 😦

Seems Bluehost is unable to keep servers shared by many people secure. WordPress.com has almost never been hacked.

One guy at Bluehost is super. Matt Greenwood <mattgreenwood@bluehost.com> If you MUST host on a for profit server, I’d recommend you contact him.

WordPress.com is by far the best of the free web hosting services. I do pay for some add-on services with WordPress.com. Happy to support that excellent company

I'm recommending WordPress.com, not WordPress.org
