I was curious to find out how other people write posts on their blogs. I assume its mostly via the web admin interface or via a secure email address which posts to the blog. This is what I used to do as well. However, recently, I found out about Windows Live Writer, which, to be honest, is really cool. It is a desktop tool that allows you to write offline posts, preview them using your blog’s stylesheets and then post them when you are ready. It is packed with a lot other features. I think this is really useful as the editors in a webpage are always a bit dodgy when you write long posts. The best part is , it supports most of the blog softwares out there, including WordPress which I use. This piece of software from Microsoft does look really neat.
I know, most people in the CF community use blogCFC, which according to me is a great piece of software, but I just didnt happen to use it when I started blogging. I just installed WordPress to start looking into it and as I started blogging more and more, I didnt get a chance to change my blog software. Unfortunately, Windows Live writer does not support blogCFC officially, but my gut feeling is, because it uses XMlRPC to post to the blog, it might be worth it to try to post to blogCFC using this.
By the way, I am writing this post from within Windows Live Writer.
