Behold! A client for Blogger. It allowed you to post to your blogs from the comfort of your desktop. I built this for MacOS Classic back in the day.

Also it has a cute splash screen:

I miss doing desktop apps a lot.

What about building Electron Desktop apps? These days you might even be able to replicate most of the functionality in MacOS classic...

To be honest, I don't like Electron. You end up with multiple chrome engines running on the same machine wasting resources. I love web technologies but I'd rather use something less wasteful on the desktop. Thanks a lot for the reply though. I wish all those electron apps were sharing a runtime.
