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?
