One blogger who is always good value is Mitch Joel of TwistImage. I can vouch for the quality of his post today,The 10 Things You Need For Your Computer. One of his recommendations was Windows Live Writer.
If you Blog, this is one of the better applications to get the job done. You can work offline, save drafts and insert all kinds of multimedia. Once you’re set-up, you can also see how the post will look when it’s live and you can even publish to the Web directly from the software package. The best functionality is the link manager. Once you assign a URL to a specific keyword, all you have to do it highlight it in future posts and the link will be automatically inserted. This saves tons of time and makes linking the pleasure it should be. Windows Live Writer is free.
I have now switched to Windows Live Writer and I echo everything Mitch said. I am sure my productivity will be double using this software. I am not usually a Microsoft fan, but I take my hat off to them. Thanks a million, Mitch.
