Eileen blogged about Live Writer back in August and together with James has been gently suggesting that I should give it a whirl (try it).

I've used Microsoft Live Writer for the last few posts and have found it to be a delight to use.
The Windows Liver Writer blog gives a great introduction to this WYSIWYG blog editor.
