This is a WYSIWYG blog editor. I looked at it once before, but did not start using it then. I’ve spent the better part of today reviewing it in detail and will use it henceforth to write my post. These are the things Microsoft says WLW will do for a blog author:
The first thing to notice about Writer is that it enables true WYSIWYG blog authoring. You can now author your post and know exactly what it will look like before you publish it. Writer knows the styles of your blog such as headings, fonts, colors, background images, paragraph spacing, margins and block quotes and enables you to edit your post using these styles.
Writer also includes other views including HTML source-code editing and web preview mode.
Now you don’t have to waste time going through the process of publishing, refreshing, previewing, and tweaking your post to get it looking the way you want. It’s all right there in Writer as you create your post.
BTW, this post was made using Windows Live Writer. The publication process is simpler. I like it!
