Ever heard of it? I hadn’t until last December/January. I don’t recall exactly when, but I can tell you that I read about it in a “What I’ve Learned About Blogging” post on I Heart Naptime. She gave ten tips and this was numero uno. Good call, Jamielyn, good call. My favorite feature? It has basic photo editing features built right in. Watermarking, cropping, rotating all with the single click of a button. Check out all the options:
I also LOVE that it saves a local copy of all your posts. Remember when Blogger freaked out a couple weeks ago and was down. That was annoying… even more annoying… I lost a few posts, supposedly temporarily… but I still haven’t seen them. With Windows Live Writer, it was super easy to just republish my posts.
There are some pretty cool, awesome add-ons as well. Auto tag… check. Facebook photos… check. Bookmarking tags… check. Facebook Like button… check.
It’s really easy to set tags and publish dates. AND every font on my computer is an option. Not just the six that Blogger has available. Woot, WOOT!
Ok, that’s a basic run down on Windows Live Writer… too bad I’m not being paid for this post… Yeah, all opinions are my own. Just wanted to share a cool program with you. Now… download it!
