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

Discussed this with Brad and Jesse, and the concensus is that we will not list clients that are not free to use. The source doesn't have to be available, but it should be available for people to use for free.

You're welcome to create and maintain a client that isn't free/open, we just don't want to provide free advertising for such a client. LiveJournal is open and free, and we like to encourage other projects to be that way as well.

And just as a note from a fellow client developer, you'll probably want to start supporting extended LiveJournal tags. Most people are very used to those, and general users would probably not use a client that didn't support them.

Thanks for reply.
Of course, we will support extended tags.

LJ green-sleeved thumb of approval to this decision.
