Blogging Tips #1 – Writing your content

Now, you could always use your blog’s in-built writer, but the only problem is that you won’t be able to see the design in real-time, so you won’t know what size the image can fit on your design, unless you keep editing it, and if you are new to this – it may take a long, long time.

So, introducing Windows Live Writer – and yes, this comes from Microsoft. This neat tool allows you to bring in some much needed relief in writing a blog post. Not only you can write and have a look at your design, but you can also add images, embed video and also look at the HTML coding.

It supports Movable Type, Windows Live Spaces, WordPress, TypePad, Community Server, Sharepoint Blogs, Blogger, LiveJournal and any blog that supports RSD, which allows the person to edit and send posts to your site with just the username, password and the URL.

So, if you want to get ahead in blogging, this tool is great for you – and I’ve been using it for more than a year to write TECHGEEK.com.au posts.

You can download it here, as part of the Windows Live Essentials suite.
