Speaking of independent blogging tools: I just noticed that Desk 3 was released. Desk is a beautifully focused and thoughtful blogging app. I was actually a little worried that it had died the slow death of so many indie apps before it. Instead, it looks like a huge amount of energy went into Desk’s third version. More than that, it looks like John Saddington is building a second blogging app, mnml, that provides an elegant experience for posting to Medium. I count this as two more encouraging data points for the space.
