Whenever I think to write a post on picktherick.com I feel somewhat lazy to login. If you are regular wordpress user or a newbie you must be looking for a better way to write blog post on your blog. Use WordPress Desktop Client. I am sure that you will feel amazed by installing these recommended free softwares.

Regular wordpress users are using these desktop softwares to write and beautify their posts before publishing. You might ask why should we use these wordpress clients when we have web logins? So, before telling anything else about these windows / mac wordpress clients I should tell you what are the benefits.


Benefits of using WordPress Desktop Software



1) No Different Versions of Posts in WordPress (No Redundant Data in Database): When we write a post then wordpress regularly save different versions of the same post many times and when you hit publish then the latest version is shown to the users. What about those different versions then? Well, they stay there forever and filling you database. For Example if you have 10 posts on your blog then you database contains around 10 versions of each post. Do you imagine how much junk your database is containing and mind this that these junk versions slow down data retrieval from wordpress DB. Using these desktop clients will not create any junk at all in your database and faster site load will happen.


2) Flexibility: When I write a blog post, I feel irritated switching between tabs on browser. If I have opened around 15 tabs then its very frustrating finding the right one. Switching between running softwares is easy than switching between tabs on browser.


3) Quick and Easy Post Drafting: Tell me one thing, pasting an image on MS-Word is easy or on wordpress? Its that simple. You can draft your post like you are working on MS-Office or any other word client.

5) Encouragement: When you see a shortcut of wordpress client on your desktop you feel motivated to write a something new on your blog. While working on internet motivation is the biggest factor of your success. And here you get it everytime you see your desktop.
