BlogJet is a new Windows client for LiveJournal with WYSIWYG editor. It definitely should be added to Windows Clients list.

If I get it right, the download page lists only LJ clients, not blogger. For ex., w.bloggar isn't there too though it can work with LJ.

The last thing lj needs, is a massive, hard to use client list.

If we look hard enough, I bet we can come up with hundreds of different lj clients. Part of lj's business aspects is to keep lusers happy. Lusers really don't like making choices.

Given the choice between vi, EMACS, pico, jed, etc., most lusers become confused and simply pick the first, one. It's too much work to research the choices. Expecially since they all do pretty much the same thing.

Clients all pretty much do the same thing as well. Giving the users hundreds of uncatagoried choices will just confuse them. Catagorizing them will be slightly difficult, since someone will have to be incharge of making sure the catagories are correct and fair. And pruning abandoned projects.

It's much better for the lj team to select the 10 ~ 20 best and display them, even if the 'best' are more or less arbitrarily picked.

On a side note, $19.95 is WAY too much. $20 for WYSIWYG and lj-cut? :/ If you really want to sell it, I suggest going for either begware, where you ask for donations or else $4.99 ~ $9.95.

Either that, or have a free verson and a value added verson.

Don't you suggest asking donations in exchange for carrot in grocery? Please try and let me know the results.

Selling Carrots != Selling Software!

There's a difference! It's painfully obvous!

Any farther discussion between the logistics of selling software and selling carrots will just make me feel moronic, so I'll stop now.
