Movable Type users: If you’re not using a third-party blog client to post to your blog, you’re doing way too much typing!

Unless you prefer to input all of your HTML by hand, a blogging client will greatly simplify the process of posting to your blog. I assume that all of you fine readers are smart individuals who have already taken advantage of this technological innovation. But if you’re not hip to it yet (hell, I only just learned about it recently), here’s the gist.

There are three blog clients geared specifically towards MT. If you want something simple, try MTClient. It doesn’t have the most attractive interface, and it lacks a help file, but it works with a minimum of configuration.

My preferred client is SharpMT. It’s attractive, full-featured, updated frequently, and it supports plug-ins! (Don’t ask me where you can get ‘em though). You’ll need to install the Microsoft .NET framework (from Windows Update, 23MB) to run it.

I haven’t tried Zempt yet, but it looks like a fine program. It also supports plugins, and you can even call it through a browser bookmarklet.

In short, the above blogging clients have just about all of the posting functions of the MT web interface. You’ll wonder how you updated your blog without it!
