So I have contemplated trying this app for some time now, and once I found out there is a trial I tried it out. There are some neat things in that program, but users should keep in mind that MarsEdit does not support Featured Images, which is essential for common WordPress sites. Users have been asking for this since 2011, and it is still not there. I might purchase just for some things it does, but the no featured image thing is kind of a deal breaker for me.

I just listened to this and it's great. I am going to see about downloading a free trial of this app, or possibly entering to win a copy although with my busy schedule I don't know if that'll work out. But I have a blog on Dreamwidth (they term them journals), and I'm wondering if this will work with their platform. It is similar to WordPress and Live Journal, but unlike LJ the online version of Dreamwidth is totally accessible at least with VoiceOver and Chromevox. I will also check with the awesome Dw folks about this. Thanks again for a great walkthrough!
