So terrific that 3 of 4 readers rated it "soporific"

Windows Live Writer

Finally, we can talk about Windows Live Writer.

I don’t really have a lot to say except: it gave me back my blogs, and stoked my desire to write something – rather than the silent dread of fighting a (*!%!_ browser-based HTML editor again.

After it’s set up, it’s a WYSIWYG editor, in a more meaningful fashion than most other blog tools I’ve used over the last few years.

Don’t think for a moment that it’s just for Spaces – while it does work with Spaces (I’m told), I’ve been using it against Community Server and WordPress for a while, with excellent results.

I try to avoid spouting superlatives at our supremely stupendously sexy software on this blog, but this is one of those times that my jaw hit the desk, and I’m paying that part forward.

Consequently, I’m off sick today nursing my jaw injuries*, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t all suffer with me.

If you have a blog, and you’re not actively in love with your blogging tool, you really should give this a try and see if it makes your life easier!
