My Want For the Perfect Desktop Blogging Client

As many of you know, I post these blog entries in both Wordpress and LiveJournal.  Wordpress has a great content management system.  Livejournal allows for ease of reading and posting. (I get more comments via livejournal than I do on the wordpress blog by far.)  What one lacks, the other excels at, so I've just gotten used to the idea of maintaining two blogs.

The problem with that is that there isn't a desktop blogger that can update both properly.Windows Live Writer allows me to add new categories in Wordpress without having to go into the dashboard.  It's got this great SmugMug plugin so I don't have to go to the smugmug.com website to get the links to my photos.  But it doesn't do Livejournal tags properly.  And Zoundry Raven doesn't update the categories list, much less allow you to make a new one.  But it does somehow manage to add livejournal tags properly.  And there aren't any plugins to add yet.  I'm like Goldilocks without the third option.

If Live Writer could just add the lj tags properly, I'd be all set.  Really, I would.
