Blogo is a blog editor mac app that helps professional bloggers to post 2x more and reduce the average time to create a post from 60 to 20 minutes. There are now more than 25 million professionals bloggers in the world. They devote between 30-50 hours/week to blogging and manage 3 to 5 sites at the same time. Although the most important part of their job is writing, too much time is wasted on side activities such as moderate comments, photoshop, image/video/form embedding and html stuffs. The result is the loss of focus, quality and productivity. Blogo is the easiest and fastest way to write, publish and manage multiple blogs. We simplify the production workflow by taking off everything that is irrelevant, freeing the path between idea and publication, regardless of blogging platform. Bloggers can easily edit images, manage all the comments on a single dashboard, preview posts as it will be seen online, embed video/form/image directly from the browser and even work offline. Read more
