997th Post – A Noble Experiment

This is my first attempt to create a blog post using Windows Live Writer.  It is a free download from Microsoft that lets me create blog posts off line.  I can be at the cottage without an internet connection and yet write something that can be uploaded at a later date when I am attached to a network. 

There are a frightening number of add-on’s and plug-in’s to Windows Live Writer.  I am sure that in the upcoming months I’ll have fun learning them.  Right now, though, I am daunted by now much I have to learn from it.

I can write a blog post in this editor and press a button to see a preview of how it will look when I choose to publish the thing.  This should (“should”) eliminate some of the unpleasant spacing issues I have had with things like the interviews I have published over the last few months.  Maybe you haven’t noticed them, but I have.

Oh, in the late hours of Sunday night, I received a major piece of what will be revealed in post 1000, coming up in a couple of days.  I’ll show that stuff off then.  I very much hope you like those things.  I sure do.   I am very excited about showing them to you.

There are always growing pains as one learns a new technology.  Do wish me luck learning this one, won’t you?
