Posting via LiveWriter

By | April 20, 2008

This is a trial post, to test the posting and editing capabilities of Windows Live Writer. This seems to be a very promising web publishing tool.

I thought that the Live Writer would only work with blogs that use Live Spaces, but the seamless integration with my WordPress based blog proved me wrong instantly.

The Live Writer can be downloaded with the rest of the live utilities pack from http://go.live.com.

I am really impressed with this easy to use blog publishing tool. I still need to find out if I can access the comments posted by readers on my blog via the Live Writer, but even if the facility is not available in the current version, it is worth the download.

Try it. It doesn’t cost a dime and I am sure it’ll leave you pleasantly surprised. Windows products are finally coming around towards being more user friendly, the LiveWriter being a shining example of this trend. Keep it up MS.

    Oh, so it uses the XML-RPC protocol to post, does it? Don’t see the authentication method listed in the Wiki page for it. Plus, Microsoft stuff. No use for Linux users.
