I am writing this blog post on Windows Live Writer. I downloaded it after reading about it in Web User magazine. I never did before, as (a) I thought you could only use it with MSN blogs (I did have a blog on MSN many moons ago) and (b) I thought I’d have to download other programmes as well as this (I didn’t want windows live mail or messenger and I’d heard that the photo programme was a bit cack).
Once I was confident that it was compatible with wordpress and I didn’t have to get the full software package, I got it on my PC. And I’m liking it so far. The fact that it automatically downloads the theme of your blog when you first set the software up is a good thing, as well as being able to post your entries directly to your blog from it. Hopefully you will be able to see this blog post after all I’ve said!
