Windows Live Writer (Beta)

An interesting tool. making blogging easier (not that composing a post was ever tough.. except for deciding on the content). An offline editor - compose your posts and upload them to your blog as and when you are ready. not bad eh?

One of the features I liked the most is, that it lets you download the theme of your blog and that enables you to preview your post WHILE you compose it, as opposed to typing it out first and then hitting preview.. at least that's how it works on . Don't know about the other blogging services.

The reason this would score over drafting your posts on word first - is - (bet some of you were wondering, what's the big deal - why can't we just use word and copy paste) - because with this - what you see is what you get. That's why I prefer doing this rather than drafting my post on word first and then copy paste onto the blog.

Other than that.. the usual - insert tables, align text, spell check WHILE YOU COMPOSE, font style, font color, hyperlink, insert picture.. yaada yaada yaada.

If you want to give it a try.. you can download it from here
