test post using windows live writer

spooky 2mainOn Pins and Needles Sarah has been having a blog revamp and one of her tips is to use Windows Live Writer so I thought I’d give it a whirl.

So far I’m loving it. On blogger I’ve found it difficult to get pictures to line up the way I want them to and also to display the size I want but writer offers you much more control over these things.

The other advantage is that you can do your formatting offline and there are much more fonts to choose from too so a good call all in all. There still seem to be quite a few glitches between what writer shows and what blogger displays but I’m sure I’ll get used to that. Now how to switch off the outline on images and import images from flickr are next on the list of things to do.

Thank you Sarah for the tip, me likey!

Windows Live Writer is a fantastic offline blogging tool with a WYSIWYG editor. It interfaces with just about any blog service [Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, WordPress, etc.] If you're a blogger you'll find this tool incredibly helpful- and it's refreshingly free from Microsoft.

Don’t forget the plug-ins - like Zemanta.
Here's a link to the main Windows Live Writer gallery...

Happy blogging!

Until next time,
