Boost your blogging with ScribeFire

Filed under
Software

The Web is littered with blogs that are updated infrequently, at best, or completely abandoned. If you want to show your blog a little love, install ScribeFire for Firefox and get busy posting. ScribeFire puts your blog right at your fingertips in Firefox, and makes it much easier to go from thought to post.

The ScribeFire extension, formerly known as Performancing for Firefox, allows you to compose and publish entries for your blog directly from Firefox without using the blogging platform's publishing tools. This can be really convenient when you're browsing your favorite sites and want to create a quick post without having to browse to your blog's management back end and juggle two or more Firefox windows.

ScribeFire supports WordPress, Blogger, Drupal, TypePad, LiveJournal, Windows Live Spaces, and a number of other blogging systems that support the MetaWeblog API.
