I will admit, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning. I had used and LOVED the blog writing/publishing tool that comes with MS Word, until it stopped working for me. About 3 months into using it with NO problems it just up and quit on me. No matter what I did I couldn’t get that
Then I found this blog Made It On Monday where the author gives an insight to how she does her blogging. After reading the things she had to say about it I said what the heck, I’ll give it a shot and see if it makes writing easier. I then went to the page where she gives a tutorial on downloading and using Windows Live Writer. I followed the instructions, downloaded it, and followed the instructions in the set up wizard.
I’m still learning al the in’s and out’s, but so far I really DO like it. As long as I can use it without being online and then schedule a post like I had done with the tool in MS Word, I think we are going to get along just fine. There are times when I want to write, but don’t want to log into blogger in order to do so. This is one of the convenient things I once again have the ability to do.
There is also some discussion about the number of pictures that can be uploaded to Blogger, and once you reach your predetermined limit of photo uploads, you will need to PAY to be able to add more. Evidently this program, Windows Live Writer, has no limits, or if they do, no one has found that limit as of yet.
So, now that I’ve stirred the cauldron and cooked up some more juiciness, go to Made It On Monday and follow her directions for downloading, installing and then using Windows Live Writer. (I’m sending you there, because her directions are much easier to understand than my jumbled thoughts would be. If I tried to show you how, you’d be MORE than confused and wanna come back here and shoot me.)
If you decide to download and use Windows Live Writer, let me know what your thoughts are… do you like it? Or not? and why …
