Easy Blogging – Windows Only
Windows Live Writer is easy to use application that allows you to publish rich content to any web blog. Designed specifically for Windows Spaces blogs, it works flawlessly with almost any other blogger service. It provides WYSIWYG formatting, images uploading, Live Maps, and an open SDK. Its design allows for plug-ins and there are already three available.
Of course, it is not without it’s problems. Currently, the program is still in beta, so you will encounter some strange errors from time to time. That being said, I have never lost a post, or encountered an error that had an sort of adverse affect on my blog. Also, the program allows for images to be uploaded directly your blog of choice, provided they support the newMediaObject API. Apparently, Blogger.com does not support this, which is unfortunate. Thankfully the writers of this application have included FTP image uploading.
I’ve giving this a test run, and so far it’s been good. Simple, strait forward, and no horrific bugs.
