Re-discovered Windows Live-Writer a day-or-so ago and I’m going to try it out over the next few weeks to see if it’s worth keeping and replacing my native Blogger editing tool and ‘ScribeFire’.
Initial impressions are good with a whole range of downloadable plugins to add functionality to the blogging (see below)
It’s closer to ‘Word’ in terms of how it works and it seems to be really easy to use. Love it already!!
- Insert a horizontal line
- Insert a smiley
- Insert a map
- Insert a symbol
- Insert a web-site image
- Insert a snip capture (although that doesn’t seem to be working on my Vista laptop)
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
