I have been using Live Writer since it was beta, sometime back in year 2007. There are 2 key reasons for me to use Live Writer. Firstly, in Malaysia not everywhere can connect to Internet easily. Lastly, inserting picture into blog is not easy.
Live Writer is still the only offline blog editor that I know thus far. I have been using Live Write for Live Spaces in the past. Now, I use Live Writer 2011 for WordPress because of migration from Live Spaces to WordPress.
Live Writer 2011 is using Ribbon rather than pull down menu. To configure your blog account is just 2 simple steps away.
1. Click the Blog Account
2. Type in the account information.
Happy blogging with Live Writer 2011.
