Blogging with Writely

Some days ago, El Cerrajero told me to try Writely.com , so that’s what I am going to do now.

Writely is one of the new Web 2.0 resources, where you can write documents as if it were Word or OpenOffice.org. But it lets you also blog directly to your personal webpage.

The interface is really agreeable. It has the most important functions (including the justify text, that normally is not included in the most important part of the blog editors). There are several possibilities of formatting text, in fact more than I have seen for a long time. You can save your documents -it saves it automatically everything you write-, and there is a spell checker.

There are some inconveniences. As writely is owned by Google, and Google also owns Blogger , there are several features that are missing, such as trackbacks -in Blogger you have to add haloscan– or technorati tags, which are both very useful . Especially, the trackbacks to connect posts which are writing of related issues. Trackbacks are included in some other blogging platforms, such as wordpress (this blog, for example, uses wordpress on wordpress.com), typepad or blogharbor.

But for people blogging with blogger is a very comfortable tool, which I am going to add to the sidebar after “web resources”

 

Hace algunos días, El Cerrajero me aconsejó que probara Writely.com, así que eso es lo que estoy haciendo.

Es una aplicación Web 2.0, donde se pueden editar y crear documentos de Word o OpenOffice.org. Pero también permite bloguear.

Su interfaz es muy agradable. Tiene todas las funciones de formato deseables -incluso permite incrementar o disminuir el tamaño de la letra-, como ya veis arriba. Incluso tiene función para grabar los posts -los graba además automáticamente- y también tiene corrector ortográfico -que está en inglés- 😉

Sin embargo, para mi presenta distintos inconvenientes. El más importante sin duda, es que como Writely es propiedad de Google y Google también es dueño de Blogger, que no tiene funcionalidad para usar trackbacks -si no se le añade la aplicación externa haloscan, no se tiene posibilidad -o al menos yo no la he encontrado ;)- de mandar trackbacks, ni tampoco de incluir tags de technorati o del.cio.us, ambas características muy útiles.

I am adding tags manually:

del.cio.us tags: writely, blog editors, Web 2.0.

technorati tags: writely, blog editors, Web 2.0.
