I have a new blogging love. Her name is Windows Live Writer, and I have a feeling we will be in love for a very very long time.
It has truly been a whirlwind romance. I met her at Blissdom 2012 this past February, although it seems we have actually been in each other’s company for a long time and not even known it.
If I had to describe our relationship in a quick sentence or two I would say:
Windows Live Writer allows you to create stunning blog posts in minutes, with photos, videos, maps, and more. Then publish them to any of your favorite blog service providers such as WordPress, Blogger, and TypePad.
But our relationship deserves more than a couple of sentences, let me begin to explain why we have the most perfect relationship. From the first time I wrote on her sleek personalize page, and published directly to my blog page, I knew it was love.
- Finally a way to organize my pictures in EXACTLY the places I want them.
- Finally I can watermark my pictures in one place without uploading my pictures to another site and re-saving them, then uploading them to my blog.
- Finally no more fear of losing my post when my internet connection isn’t always the best.
Windows Live Writer is a place where I can come and let my blogging mojo flow, edit, create, and when I am finally satisfied with the result all I have to do is publish or post as a draft to my blog.
This is also great because if I am limited on my internet connectivity then I could still do my posts, save them in Windows Live Writer, and upload them all directly to my blog when I have connection.
When I first started dating Windows Live Writer she made the experience of writing off my blog as personal as possible. My fonts, my Headings, even my blog background appear in my writing space.
Hyperlinking is super smart, not more pasting my links, just copy the link you want to hyperlink in your post, and then highlight the selected text, and click hyperlink. Just like magic the link is already there!
The whole relationship is effortless and magical.
I mentioned above that I had actually been keeping her company and not even known it. You see Windows Live Writer was already on my HP Envy! My guess is she is on your computer too, but you can also download the program here.
If you need anymore convincing on starting your own love affair with Windows Live Writer, check out this tutorial on adding pictures, videos, maps, and other plugins you may need directly into your post.
Thankfully Windows Live Writer isn’t a jealous mistress. Which is great for me as I am also enjoying using SkyDrive and Windows Movie Maker on a regular basis as well. All amazing tools any blogger should start a relationship with today!
Disclosure: I am not being compensated in ANY WAY for this post. I just had to share my new love with the whole world!
