While I was at the .NET Partner Advisory Council meeting in Redmond, one of the other members made us aware of the existence of Windows Live Writer, a small tool from the Windows Live group to edit blogs. So I downloaded it and I am now trying it for the first time.
It actually looks quite good – and collaborates really well with my WordPress blog. It even downloads the theme of my blog, and allows me to write my blog post WYSIWYG, that is, I’m typing it in the same manner that it will display on my blog.
I’m now adding a picture – of the Windows Live Writer user interface of me typing this blog.
Now, all that’s left is publishing this blog post to my blog. If that works to, you’ll be able to read, and I probably stick to Windows Live Writer for writing new blog posts. Time to press the Publish button…
Have been using it since it launched… makes blogging so much easier, especially the way it handles images and embedded media (try copy-pasting a Youtube URL).
I am using it for over a year now, and it is actually pretty good. There are also some nice plugins available for example to post code samples on your blog.
And I’m still using it. And loving it.
