Blogs have become a highly influential way to gather and disseminate news, information, and opinion, and WordPress is the platform of choice. Of course, discriminating writers prefer to use the Mac, so how can a Mac blogger write for a WordPress site? Yes, there’s an app for that.
The Easy Way, Or The Better Way
The easiest way to add content to a blog is simply by logging into a WordPress site, select Add New post from the menu, add a title, set the publish date, select a category, and begin writing.
While easy enough, that method requires a live connection to the internet and there’s always a chance that what you write might get mangled in the process.
Now, you could easily write your blog’s articles in a word processor, but most of those are filled with useless features, complex, and not made for blogging.
Or, you could add Metropolis to your Mac and write a complete article complete with links and photos and upload the finished product to your site when you get connected online.
Metropolis looks like a simple word processor but it’s built for WordPress sites.
Doesn’t that look inviting?
The app makes it easy to create and edit both posts and pages in any WordPress site, but do so offline if needed.
Metropolis comes with a usable WYSIWYG editor so you don’t have to worry about learning HTML or CSS code.
Yet, there’s an HTML editor, too, just like WordPress. Even though you can work offline, Metropolis also lets you add photos to an article which can be uploaded later.
Twitter is integrated and so are comments. In fact, you won’t even have to login to your site to manage comments. Metropolis can do it.
Metropolis works in fullscreen mode on new Macs, comes with an option to protect your writing with a password, and displays a perfect preview of your article before it gets published. It’s a good way to create and upload content on a WordPress site right from your Mac.
