Your question is too open-ended. Are you looking for a program to keep a journal - or to interact with an online blog service. If the latter which blog services? What are key features you require? Please edit your question to include these details. –  Marco Ceppi Sep 18 '10 at 14:54

OMGUbuntu.co.uk wrote an article about offline blog editors last month. I summarise the article and my experience of Blogilo here : http://www.scaine.net/site/2010/07/blogilo/. The bottom line was I didn't find an editor that matched my expectations. Perhaps the new version of BloGTK will fit the bill, but both Blogilo and QTM required KDElibs which put me off a little from the beginning.

I use QTM for my wordpress.com blog. I also second Bloglio and Scribefire.

For KDE the best in my view offline blog editor is Bloglio. Allows me to write my blog outside of WordPress where my blog is hosted. Same thing for BloGTK which I liked ascwell

Blogilo is excellent. First time you open it while connected (to set it up) you can tell it to download the blog theme so you get real previews exactly how they'll look on your blog. –  maco Sep 18 '10 at 16:05

You might find this funny, but on Windows, Windows Live Writer is an amazing tool for creating and editing your blog. Blogilo is a great replacement for those trying to switch –  jjesse Sep 19 '10 at 2:38
    
Bloglio is a great tool. I use it when I'm on windows and I have a blog post to write. –  gamerchick02 Sep 30 '10 at 23:22

BloGTK has gotten offline editing mode since version 2.0 it seems.
