Windows Live Blogger

I have tried a lot of blog editing software.  There is a lot of great free software available for Windows bloggers out there.  Some highlights include BlogDesk and w.Blogger.  This weekend however, I installed Windows Live Writer on a whim.  I had read that it was a great piece of software and that it even posted to WordPress powered blogs.  So I decided to give it whirl.

I am so glad I did.  This is one fantastic piece of software.  It really does make blogging easier.  At least for me.  It grabs my blogs style so that when I edit posts, I see what they will look like in real time.  No more guessing on those photo dimensions to make sure everything lines up right.  I can post-date posts, which is a big deal for me since I (try to) write posts in advance.  I can edit categories, tags, and even my excerpts without ever having to log into WordPress’s administration page.  Pretty slick stuff.

No, I wasn’t paid by anyone to say this stuff.  I really do enjoy the product and I’ve only had it installed for a couple of days.  It really seems to fill my needs quite nicely.  So, if you haven’t tried it yet, download Windows Live Writer, and give it a try.
