I have been searching high and low trying to find how I can easily write and blog without getting bogged down with distraction free editors and other fluff. I don’t need an IDE and yet some simple text editors are just too…well, simple.

I write in markdown so I want to be able to have a few keyboard shortcuts at my ready to make my writing just a bit easier but text editors don’t have markdown shortcuts (usually) and IDE’s are just plain overkill.

Up until now, I hadn’t found anything I liked but after some searching this evening I think I have found my new writing software. It’s Mark Text and it works well and even allows me to easily add images too.


If all goes well, when I publish this, you should see a photo of some pancakes. If this happens then I have found my new workflow.
