I’m excited to offer the next giveaway, a license ($59.95 value) for MarsEdit. Using web-based editors for blogging is frustrating in so many ways. MarsEdit makes writing for the web easy and elegant, like any good Mac app should. Plus, great Markdown support (it even works with Marked). Developer Daniel Jalkut is a legend among indie devs, and he creates stable, reliable, native Mac apps that everyone should be using.

From the developer:

Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Web browsers are wonderful for reading articles, but not for creating them. If you’re writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor. And if you’re lucky enough to have a Mac, nothing is more powerful, or more elegant than MarsEdit.

Check out the MarsEdit site for more info.

Sign up below to enter. A winner will be randomly drawn on Friday, February 02, at 12pm Central. The drawing is for a license ($59.95 value) for MarsEdit. Note that if you’re reading this via RSS, you’ll need to visit this post on brettterpstra.com to enter!

New rule: All signups must have a first and last name in order to be eligible. Entries with only a first name will be skipped by the giveaway robot. A lot of the vendors in this series require first and last names for generating license codes, and your cooperation is appreciated!

Sorry, this giveaway has ended.

Stay tuned for more giveaways every week through September, 2024 (and maybe beyond).
