If you're into heavy-duty blogging, there's one piece of advice that may stand above all others (well, other than the
old tip to avoid blogging about your job if you want to stay employed): work offline. There's nothing more frustrating
than spilling your guts in an entry only to have it fall victim to a sudden Firefox hiccup. And, while there are quite
a few decent offline editors, ecto is, without a doubt, one of the best. It's cross-platform, works with most popular
blogging platforms including Blogger, Movable Type and WordPress, and it's now available for 20% off (from Friday
through Monday only). That's $14.36, instead of the usual (and eminently reasonable) $17.95. At that price, you can't
afford not to work offline.
