Windows Live Writer
Windows Live Writer does not seem to like CSS very much. In theory the WYSIWYG experience should make blogging just that much easier. Not that I find it super hard now — but — it should get easier. Well I have to say that this um….sucks. The design is all whacked out and it’s actually harder to see what I’m doing.
Wait. Wait. Belay that order…..
I should play before I type. So the WYSIWIG view bites, but the live preview is pretty hot and the plain text entry version works just dandy. hmm…I’m going to click a few more buttons. Amuse yourselfs for a second…

I clicked a few more buttons, and nothing too exciting. I think the map feature could be cool, but I’m not grooving on it yet. I was trying to find more things to dog on, but they even include the categories. There’s no built in Technorati tagging, but I’m sure someone will build a plugin to handle that.
Hmm….looks like they’ve included all the basic features. Now I just need to figure out why this is better than just using the blog systems’ editing systems.
