Trying Out Newsgator

I've decided to try out a few other blogging tools. Not because there's anything wrong with RSS Bandit - yeah, sometimes I have to shut it down and restart it, because it stops downloading feeds (usually after I suspend the laptop a few times). But to me, that's a minor inconvenience.

So why switch? Mainly because I do everything in Outlook - contacts, email, calendar. And with Outlook, searching is much easier. Now I can save the posts I want, and be able to easily search them later. RSS Bandit didn't give me the same functionality (at least not in conjunction with searching email at the same time). And with Google Desktop, now the blogs I read will be indexed by Google for me!

So we'll see how it goes. The side benefit is that if this works, I can post from Outlook too!
