Checking out Windows Live Writer with Sitefinity

sunset_resized Ever since I upgraded the site, I’ve been looking for an easier way to post than to use the built-in Sitefinity blog administration tool. It is better than the old system, but was still not optimal – I must still be online to create the posts, and the interface is a bit clunky.

Since I’ve read lots of positive feedback about Windows Live Writer, I’m trying it out now. I can already see why it would be more enjoyable to use, given the on-the-fly spell-checking that I’m already used to.  The ability to save drafts is another advantage.

So, this post is my first attempt at using Windows Live Writer to post. Of course it includes a picture so that I can figure out how it handles images.

Update: Does it create new post or update the existing one when I edit and republish? Answer: Edits the existing one. Cool!
