Blogging Software for Mac

Now that typing problem is mostly resolved, I've moved my attention to finding a good offline blogging software.

So far I've identified MarsEdit and etco.

MarsEdit:
PROs:
  • Built-in Flickr support
  • Clean interface
  • LJ support without any fuss
  • Lots of users and easy to find help/forum

CONs:
  • No WYSIWSG
  • Expensive @ almost $30
  • Tagging seems to be not working


Ecto:

PROS:
  • Less expensive (~$17)
  • WYSIWYG
  • Tagging works out of the box
CONs:
  • LJ support broken out of the box, requires some tweaking but it'd work
  • Problem editing published posts on LJ
  • Interface is a bit more cluttered than MarsEdit
  • Support forum a bit messier since it was recently acquired by another company
  • WYSIWYG produces unexpected outputs at times (for example.. crazy spacing between bulleted items)


I can't quite make the call just yet, but any of these two beats using the blog site online editor
