Just when I was about to move this

I was just about to scratch this whole effort on Blogger as yesterday, while attempting to update / change some things I kept getting the damnable "BX-Error" thingie. So, I made a new template on Wordpress, and then -just a bit ago- thought I'd try updating again. Darned if it didn't work. Unfortunatly, I choose a template at random (for now) that I'm not all that up with, but the heck with it. I'll keep it for now. Of course, I lost my counter & a bunch of other things and the whole appearance looks like shit, but it's running again.

Windows Live Writer is Your Friend

Recently I discovered and tried Windows Live Writer. Much coolness ensued thereafter. WLW is specifically a blog posting tool. It supports multiple blogs, and multiple blog platforms. It is “live” in the sense that your posts can be made immediately –or, saved as drafts for later posting. It is not live in the online sense in that it is a desktop application that you download & install. Although, I thought there was supposed to be an online method to using this too, but I haven’t looked into it yet. Here’s their front page:
Writer - Windows Live
This is very easy to use, and has many great features that are not present in the online blog posting tools you find on the blog sites themselves. Additionally, there are nifty plugins available – and I will post my experiences with some of them later. I highly recommend this – then, you’ll be cool like Uncle Ersatz too! Here’s how to get it up & running:
After downloading and running install, you get:
Windows Live Writer - 1
Then, it asks which blog service you use:
Windows Live Writer - 2
I selected “Other blog service” and you get this screen. You must fill-in the URL, and your username & password:
Windows Live Writer - 3
It then contacts your blog and downloads settings info:
Windows Live Writer - 4
This is asking permission to send a test post – good idea
Windows Live Writer - 5
It’s all set up, and for the sake of convenince (within WLW) you can give it a nickname (like . . . “Bob” for example)
Windows Live Writer - 6
After clicking “Finish” above, you get the main WLW compose screen, ready for your test post. It has detected the proper font and colors you use:
Windows Live Writer - 7
I was unimaginative and called it “Testing LiveWriter”
Windows Live Writer - 8
Then, I “published” it, and WLW opens-up your blog in your browser. Much coolness.
Windows Live Writer - 91
