Blogging with Live Writer Beta

Setup was easy.  One click to add a webpage reference - or self-reference in this case.

The publish function works well and more seamlessly than most.

Now for the big test.  Does Live Writer publish to BlogSpot well?

Well it works just great. I started this entry on Live and just repointed to tech-coments and duplicated it here in one click.  Now let's see if we can switch back....

PS - we get spelling and proper WYSIWYG.

It's also very nice to be able to edit right in the template and not have to do previews.  Editing right in the whole page would be even better.  Template editing would be the cat's pjs...

The editing back and forth between blogs is very nice.  It would be nicer if we could publish to multiple target simultaneously.


 Switching back and forth between blogs causes duplicate entries forcing me to delete the older entry.  Apparently Live Writer doesn't honor the post ID when publishing.
