I found a couple of nice ways of posting to my blog out here. I am now using the post-by-email option. Which effectively means that I assign an email firstname.lastname@example.org to send my posts to. And any emails to that address will reflect as posts on my blog. Nifty feature, eh!
Also I found a nice client - BloGTK. It supports a few other services as well, but Blogger being free, I am sticking to this along with my Live Journal Blog.BloGTK can be found here. Looks like I am gonna have some fun here!
