Windows Live Writer – My Essential App
The Challenge in the Clubhouse for this month asks a simple question – What Windows Live product can you not live without? This is just too easy for me, and Windows Live Writer is the obvious answer to this one. Sometimes I am amazed that an application this useful is actually free, without any ads or anything else. I would without a doubt pay for WLW if it wasn’t free.
I manage and contribute to several blogs from technology to gaming interests. One of my favorite features of WLW was the ease of use, and the ability to have several blog accounts which can be switched easily from a drop-down menu. This makes blogging for multiple sites a breeze.
Windows Live Writer also does a great job at handling media files whether it is embedding video or images. I have most of my blog accounts setup to publish via FTP, and the added effect such as drop shadows and resizing is essential when writing blog posts.
I really could go on and on about Live Writer, but I think I have made my point that WLW is an essential app for my daily computing.
