about.me/richardadleta

TedC sent me over to about.me. I opened my own page. It’s fancy with the UI widgets. If you add several services it’ll let you link to other social content generators (e.g. twitter, blogspot, linkedin, etc.) No much else there, yet.

It' seems like the biggest use is putting your name on a page then getting the best picture of yourself and making it the background.

One more web site with my profile information. Sigh.

Now to find a pretty background… :)

Finding a Blog Editor

I'm trying to find a good blog editor. I started by trolling google for a blog editor and ran across several. Usage is premium. It has to be simple, easy and quick.

I just downloaded the Chrome Plug-in called ScribeFire. (It's what I'm using to write this post.) I noticed it supports other browsers. So far, it's not bad, but then as I’m linking to the download page… BAM! It doesn’t let me highlight text and link it. I have to insert link, fill out form and submit. Boo! Uninstall.

While I was wasting my time with ScribeFire, I had the Windows Live Writer downloading in the background. I installed it and I have to say I’m actually impressed. It’s nice. It does what I want and the interface is pretty. I’ll stick with this one for a bit and see how it goes.

UPDATE: I found some nice Plugins for Windows Live Writer.
