Live Writer is another great tool for posting blogs offline.  I used to use w.bloggar, but the site is down and who knows what is going on with the writer.  Configuring Live Writer is very easy to do, here are the steps you need to take to configure it with Geekswithblogs.net.  (Sorry for the long post, but people are asking for this).

Start the Installation File:

InternetExplorer

Agree to the terms (or don't install and stop reading):

2License

Decide if you want the toolbar, you can see my decision here:

3Toolbar

Go to Start, Programs, and run the Windows Live Writer (Beta):

The first screen that will run is this welcome screen:

4StartApp

Choose the Another weblog service in the Choose Blog Type window:

5BlogType

Enter your weblog address (see below) in Weblog Homepage URL field and then the Username and Password for the site:

6WeblogHomepage

Select the Custom (Metaweblog API)LiveWriter in the dropdown and then insert the address for your weblog's MetaBlog API service.   This is http://www.geekswithblogs.net/<YOUR_BLOG_NAME>/services/metablogapi.aspx

7SelectProvider

Finish off with setting your blog name in the application.

8Complete

Now you are finished and can start writing offline posts and selecting categories for your posts as well.  Good luck setting this up!

I suggest that you try Zoundry (zoundry.com). Its very good, and its ftp functionality actually works.
