Blogging platforms often have elements that take quite some time to load up in the browser. This can be inconvenient if you want to make small edits to a blog post. For instance if you find that a comma was misplaced in a post, waiting a minute for the editing interface to load so you can make the correction is frustrating if you are short on time.
One thing, which I learned about Blogging is, ideas can come any time. For example, when you are reading this blog post, you might get an idea to write about blog editor tools for Chrome and so on. To blog from web page you are using, Scribefire is one of the most effective chrome addon for writers and Bloggers.
