Blog Faster, Blog Better

Oversee your digital-publishing empire with MarsEdit.

MarsEdit 4 - Blog Editor

Publish to WordPress and more


With MarsEdit, you can update multiple blogs across different hosting platforms using a single, easy-to-use editor. No need to remember the quirks of the WordPress interface and how it differs from Tumblr’s. And no need to wait for laggy web-based editors to catch up to you. Because MarsEdit runs locally on your Mac, you can compose complex entries—even those with images and rich-text formatting—as quickly as they come to mind.

Speed freaks will especially appreciate MarsEdit’s robust support for shortcut keys. Sure, you’ve got standard ones, like bolding and italicizing (Command-B and Command-C). But MarsEdit goes a step further, letting you insert images (Shift-Command-I) or preview your post (Shift-Command-P). You can also create custom shortcuts for a wide range of commands, from inserting an ordered list to a Heading 1.

Build your page with simple tools and see a real-time preview.

The latest version of MarsEdit adds a handy Safari extension that turns an article you're reading into the basis of a blog post. Simply select text on any web page and click the rocket-ship icon in Safari’s toolbar; MarsEdit will create a new entry with a page title, link, and your selection as a block quote. Add your own insightful commentary, choose which of your blogs to post to, and click Send to Blog.

MarsEdit is compatible with all the major hosting services—WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, Movable Type, and more. And because you can compose while offline, you’ll be able to craft your invariably astute posts for the internet without actually being connected to it.
