Windows Live Writer

I saw a post about Windows Live Writer, an offline blogging tool, on Rick’s blog a couple of days ago, and decided to try it out. So far, I’m pretty impressed, although I haven’t used any other offline blogging tools so don’t have much to compare it to.

I do like that it integrates seamlessly with all three of my blogs: this one, which is uses Movable Type, my personal blog, which uses WordPress, and my wine club blog, which uses Blogger. I now have virtually the same interface for posting to all three blogs, and can even edit previously published posts. It also sucks in all the categories from each of the applicable blogs, so I have my full list of categories for tagging.

I’m sure that I’ll manage to break it soon, and will be ranting about it by week’s end, but so far I’m still having fun.
