Test of New Blog Writing Tool


Windows Live Writer!!??

So, today when I was “forced” to update my Live Messenger, I got a question if I wanted to install Windows Live Writer.

The initial information is that it’s a tool for creating posts (writing in your blog), and that it should work with a lot of different services (not only Microsoft's sites). So, I thought, “lets give it a chance”.

The application is free, and it’s a part of the “Windows Live” suite. You can find the software here:

You can also find some videos about this tool on YouTube:




Here you can se how it looks:



By inserting the snapshot above, I found out that it’s possible to configure a lot of “extra things” with this tool, compared to the “normal online writer” that Blogger or BlogSpot offers.


There are some nice plug-ins available as well, such as this “map-tool”. This map shows where I spent my last vacation. YES, it was in Cancun!

So, now I will try some different fonts:

Trebuchet MS Trebuchet MS
Viner Hand ITC Viner Hand ITC
Edwardian Script ITC Edwardian Script ITC



This seems to be a very handy tool.

What I specially like is the possibility to add new plug-ins and that you can write and preview your posts “offline” and then upload them when you leisure.

That’s all for today.

Maybe with this tool I will be able to update my blog more often in the future :-)


  1. I know the feeling man :)

    Got a nice funny blog going on here(intentional or not).

    Good work!

  2. Seems to be a useful tool. I will try it as well.
