I've had my own wordpress.org blog until that system went south. Then I
moved over to wordpress.com. I would strongly recommend wordpress.com
for a few reasons. I had almost 2 years of blogposts and they placed
them into my account cheerfully. I could not do it myself due to me
only keeping mysql backups. But you asked about blog clients. I've
tried a few:
performancing - this is a firefox addon which works very nicely here
drivel - drivel is nice but I cannot seem to make it post with more than
one category selected.

Its being actively developed so you may find things which work and
others which don't; but its a pretty nice blog client all in all.
blogtk - this one seems frozen in time at the 1.1 release or so. I gave
