Windows live writer for blog postings

Filed under: blogging — kirk @ 11:59 pm

I’m writing this post as a way to test Windows live writer for blog posting. It’s part of Windows live.

I’m not typically a fan of Microsoft products because they’re frankly never the best of breed……but simply ok or barely good enough. However, I’m quite impressed with live writer thus far. If MS had more products like this….well, I guess they’d be Apple.

I didn’t install any of the other stuff or sign up for a Windows Live ID. I just skipped all that stuff and went straight to the writer.

BlogPost_thumb1Things I like about it.

Allows for offline work, but allows you to see a preview of how your post will look.

Easy to add photos or maps….tags as well. Photo addition is frankly great. I just drag and drop a local photo and it puts it right into the blog post…interfaces with Wordpress perfectly to upload the image.

Category settings are integrated and easy. It knows what my blog post categories are.

In short, I think I’ll be using this critter alot to post to common-nature….and you should probably check it out too.
