I, for example, always, always, always use a LJ Client to make a top level post be it to my own journal or a community, be it two words or twenty-two thousand words.
Well I prefer the ease of formatting posts, the one I use is a little like MS Word in looks and 'feel', the ease of just popping links for pictures etc. into one of the options and all the coding is done. Also, the fact that I can spell check, and customise the spell checker as I go along (you can add to the dictionary), the fact that with one click I can insert a friend or community name. I can also change the place to where I'm posting with a single click, create polls, create filters, update friends, add tags, add the mood, the icon, etc. etc. everything you can do on LJ, I can do with this one thing. Oh, and I can save posts too, which I find immensely useful.
