Microsoft recently release a beta of their Windows Live Writer, a desktop blogging tool for posting blogs on the Web. This program works with Windows Live Spaces and reportedly with Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, WordPress and other. I’m using WordPress for my blog. I has a spell checker which seems to work quite well.
Let’s try inserting a graphic:
Ok, that worked. Well the graphic didn’t show after posting. Probably user error.
I’ll be trying more later …
Here a picture, I hope …
That’s better … Well, it looks good in Live Writer but doesn’t display when viewed in SharpReader or on the web.
Desktop Notes 3.0 indicates that inserting images and “uploading” to WordPress worked fine. I’m using the free WordPress so that might be the diffeence.
Also wish WLW had support for including Trackbacks.
Let’s try a quote:
