Today I did some cleaning on my laptop; removing old unused programs and updating/installing new programs. When I installed the newest Windows Live package I got the Windows Live Writer and thought that I would give it a try.
It was very easy to get started, just run the program, type the url to your blog and provide your username and password. I needed to do one change in my blog settings and that was to enable XML-RPC for remote publishing. You find this option under Tools –> Writing
It is very easy to insert several different medias when using Windows Live Writer (link, image, album, table, codes, map, video).
I also like the feeling to write in a program and not directly from my browser. I will play around using this program for my next posts and then the time will show if this is my new preferred publishing tool.
