In this post I lamented the demise (at least for me) of Zoundry Raven. Due to the evolutionary spaghetti of our WordPress-powered site, we have, essentially, two themes active at one time. One theme is the one for my blog and the other is for the rest of the site where we talk about our family and mission and post our newsletters. Zoundry could (with some gymnastics) handle both themes. I’ve not found anything else that really could. I even looked at Blog clients that one pays for and they are no more capable (often less) than the free options. (don’t waste your money!)
In the end, Windows Live Writer had most of what I needed for my blog and its theme (though the Windows Live plugin situation is pretty lamentable) and I was able to set up BlogDesk to support our newsletter posts with its theme. Neither is perfect but Zoundry had problems too. So I think I have a solution that works for our needs and I’m pleased that I can move forward without too much gnashing of teeth!
