This is Where My Post Would Appear …

… had I not used Qumana:-(     Two posts, to be exact.  

A blogger’s worst nightmare scenario:  finish editing a fairly long post, hit “save” only to see all the work gone due to a momentary server outage.   Bummer.   But  wait, Offline Blog Editors to the rescue! 

Qumana is a new, free contender in this field, comparable to BlogJet, Ecto, w.Bloggar ..etc.  I’ve been experimenting with it for a while, and my only major complaint was about the tag-soup it produces.   However, for the last two days it let me down bigtime. 

Yesterday I had to stop editing an almost finished post, so I saved the contents to a file – this morning, trying to open it I discovered Qumana created an blank html file of 1k size … all my work is gone:-(   This afternoon I wrote a somewhat longer piece, with several references to other sites, that simply took a while to pull together … finally, I’m done, click “post”, and voila! – Qumana exits, no post to my blog, and no saved copy either:-(

I’ve had it with Qumana – I’m considering writing all my posts in Onenote or Evernote, and just paste it in the online editor.

Update:  BlogJet, here I come!  (In fact I am writing this update using BlogJet)

    Zoli, I’m sorry you had problems with Qumana. I also had that happen to me — twice in fact — with Qumana and haven’t been able to reproduce it. I’d really like to know more about what you were doing, etc so we can figure this out.

    I’m sure we’ll win you over from BlogJet ;-).

    Hi Tris,

    I certainly appreciate the response.. I knew you would come, you are really good in responding to people:-) That said, I don’t know the circumstances, all I know is alreday in my post. I was looking for some Qumana log file, thinking that might help, but I did not find any.

    I lost hours, and trying to switch is simply not worth the effort, for me the reasonable option is to switch to a “safe” solution .. will wait it out, and see how you guys will do in the long run.

    Best regards,

    Zoli
