Google Chrome Blogging Extensions

Chrome LogoAs Google Chrome continues to grow, so to the extensions that go along with it and their functionality. Below are a few extensions that bloggers can use to quickly create new blog posts without leaving the page they are on.


ScribeFire has long been one of the most popular blogging extensions for Firefox, and it has made its way to Google Chrome.

ScribeFire allows you to create, edit and update all your blogs from one extension. It has built-in support for WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Windows Live Spaces, Tumblr, Posterous, Xanga, LiveJournal, and other blogging platforms. It’s quick, easy and probably the best extension for blogging on Chrome.



Extra Text Editing in WordPress

Color Color ColorA client asked me today for more control in their WordPress control panel. Specifically, when posting they wanted to control the font sizes, colors and do a bit more. As a designer I always freak at that question as I think the code is going to be filled with massive amounts of font tags and out of order strong tags and ohhh the madness. But, then again, maybe I’m overreacting.

So, I did some researching and came up with one possible idea, Xinha4WP. It’s a WordPress plugin that replaces the default text editor with a much more advanced version. It also needs the Text Control plugin to work so you need to install that too.
