Desk: A Desktop Blogging App You’ll Love (and Use)

Hi, I’m John Saddington, an indie developer and blogger! And, I’d love to share with you a few “facts”…

Fact: I’ve been blogging longer than John Gruber (since 2001).

Fact: I’ve tried every desktop blogging app out there and none have stuck.

Fact: I decided to build one for myself, one that truly focused on what really matters: Writing.

Fact: I built it exclusively for OS X and I call the app Desk — I think you’ll really like it.

Fact: It has the most simple UI possible and respects text ornamentation via Markdown (hell yeah!) and a beautiful WYSIWYG editor, among many other features.

Fact: You can directly publish to your favorite publishing platform including WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Typepad, Movable Type, Facebook Notes, Squarespace, and more on the way.

Fact: I’m not as famous nor as successful as John Gruber. ;)

It’s time you really loved your writing and publishing app. You can purchase a copy via the Mac App Store or check out the main website at

Also, feel free to follow my journey through the Desk App Blog. Thanks for supporting the small time developers! It means a lot!
