John Forsythe has a nice list of a number of Offline Blogging packages that work directly with DasBlog via the Blogger or MetaWebLog API.

Here's the ones he got working:

Personally, I use (and can't say enough nice things about) BlogJet for ALL my posts. It's fantastically easy to get working with DasBlog as has a pre-configured setting for DasBlog. It supports pre- and post-dating of posts, categories, has fantastic imaging support and automatic thumbnail generation. It also supports Music Detection (adding what you're listening to to the bottom of the post) along with Voice Attachments (a recorder is included) and overcomes the Blogger/Metaweblog APIs lack of support for attachments by using a parallel FTP upload. Very slick.

You may also want to look at Chris Frazier's PostXing - I love it. It works against the MetaBlog API... whic I imagine that DasBlog would support...

Have not tested it with dasBlog, but MarsEdit works with the Metaweblog API. I'm using it with Wordpress fine.

Scott, you said that you use BlogJet for all of your posts . . . whenever I copy code from Visual Studio into BlogJet it isn't formatted very nicely at all. Your code always looks as it should, how do you do it? I wrote a post on this subject a couple days ago and the solution that I came up with for posting at http://ericappel.net/blog/CreatingNewPosts.aspx
Thanks . . .

I use http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/41588.html CopySourceAsHTML, an Add-In for VS.NET with "embed styles" enabled. Works lovely.
