Live Writer

Melinda over at Bloggin' It From the 'Burbs had this on her blog several weeks ago and I just started using it and I love it. I only downloaded the Live Writer, not all the other stuff they have with it.

Here is what Melinda had to say about it:

When you download Live Writer, , you not only can write your posts, but you can also change the fonts and the color.

With Live writer, you are no longer limited to Blogger sized photos; but rather have four different premade options, or you can choose your own size.

You can also add frames to your photos such as dropped shadows, photopaper, and rounded corners (and that’s just naming a few).

You can even add tables and maps and videos all right there in one easy step.

One of the coolest things about Windows Live Writer, is that you can actually preview your post right there on your blog before you ever even post it. And then with a click of a button it publishes it right there to your blog page…no extra steps involved.

**I would have to agree with every word, it really makes blogging much easier and less time consuming.**


  1. I will have to check it out because I just posted and wasn't satisfied with the font options I was given. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Hi Jenny!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Live writer sounds great. Sometimes the blogging world seems overwhelming to me, figuring everything out. I am in a busy season of life, so if I find the time, I will definitely try it. Also, I read your blog on your 3 angel babies. I can only imagine what you have been through. God bless and comfort you, as I know He has. I know you are able to touch many others with what God has brought you through. Blessings, Laurie

  3. Hahahaha - now you are addicted to it too! You will never, ever go back to blogging in the Blogger Dashboard. Glad you found the info helpful!

  4. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to check this out!
    I just wrote a tutorial over on my blog tip blog about how to get a clickable slideshow like the one I have for my buttons.
    Have fun!

  5. Thanks for the great information! I cannot wait to download it and use it! Also, thank you for your prayers and support - I am blessed by your visit to my blog. I am so glad I stopped by your blog; it is beautiful and so are you! I read about you on your profile page and we have many, many of the same favorites and interests. I will be visiting your blog regularly and add you to my blog roll.

    Your new bloggy friend and sister in Christ,
