I follow quite a few Twitters who blog, many of them are mummy blogs, I suppose this is to be expected when you are of my age, you tend to follow people your own age and most people I know are busy raising families, unlike me, I'd rather be living my own life than raising someone else. Anyhow...

I know what you are thinking, he's got his willy out again! Nope. well, not this time anyway.
I have decided to post my blog entries over four different services, namely Wordpress, Blogger, Vox and Tumblr. All the posts will be identical, so there is no need to go hunting down these blogs, I just wanted to spread my wings a little.
Having already lost much of my writing due to uncertainties at other blogging platforms, i.e. Modblog & EFX2, and having heard some disquieting roumors about Vox, I thought I'd hedge my bets with more than just one service.
Luckily Wordpress allows you to import all of your old posts and comments from Vox, so I now have a duplicate blog over there, Blogger and Tumblr are just another couple of back-ups for my future posts, but since I now have a few friends that blog at those services it will make it easier for us to follow each other.
So, in order to make this transition easier I hunted around for a blogging client that had the ability to multicast onto different blog services simultaneously, this was much harder to achieve than you think as all the programs I trialled don't offer this feature! Rather odd when you think about it, I know quite a few people who have blogs with different services and such a client would be a godsend, it would at least save a lot of bother with copy and paste.
So I have finally settled with MarsEdit, although I cant multicast I can at least click a couple of buttons and it more or less does the same thing. So it saves me from having to visit four different sites and having to manually paste in a post :D
Here's a picture, because I wanted to test out the media uploader :D
Don't worry, I won't be leaving Vox any time soon though, I much prefer the community aspect of blogging over here, plus I'm used to things being the way they are and I hate too much change in one go. Plus I love the amount of dictatorial control I have over here.
For those of you who are complete OCD about links, here are the links to all my blogs. But regardless of where I am, I will always have my domain http://www.kingofankh.co.uk/ that will always point you towards my main blog.
So, here goes, my first post from MarsEdit to various platforms, I hope it goes well.
