Windows Live Writer

Posted Tuesday, May 8, 2012, at 7:30 PM


I find Windows Live Writer a darn convenient program.  I can do a blog with as many photos as I like, finish it now, finish it later.  Save it for when I'm ready to click "Publish"  Sometimes I might want to go back and add more, sometimes not.  If not, I may or may not have 2 or 3 blogs ready to publish at any given time.  I can add photos from my hard drive, or photos I find other places.  I could even upload videos, though I haven't done that as yet.  It checks my spelling, though frankly, I rarely need it.  I can make my fonts different, different colors, bold, italic, strikeout, underlined.....

change the sizes

I can left justify


right justify

  • add bullets
  • Punch   I can add emoticons

see above previous line? Those can be added via the click of a button


Even the above space is done via the click of a very special button

I Can add tables like
this How cool Do you
want to learn how? ??

Map picture


Ask for a map, I get one (Do you recognize that map?)



I don't have to be online when I share my thoughts/photos. 

hot dog! 074

Cause I'm not always online. 

My blogs often take quite awhile to "Publish", so one of my favorite things about Live Writer, is that I can schedule it to "Publish" at a time when I know my computer will be able to sit undisturbed long enough to get it all done.  I could tell it to do it in the middle of the night, during the day or whenever.  I tell it what to do, it just does it, no questions asked.  My chosen time is during the day.  I could probably schedule a year in advance if I wanted.  I could do it during the night, but I like my computer packed up and ready to walk out the door when I'm ready.   I like it to work around my daily work life, not the other way around.  That is what is nice about good technology these days: it works around us.  It's as it should be I suppose.  That is a print screen capture, (showing this particular blog, and a date I might post it, though I could change my mind) and there along the right side is how to schedule a blog post.  Pretty awesome eh?



Everyone, have a great day! Peace

Your getting good girl! Now I have to start digging around in the program myself. Wonder if you can add gif's?

If your photos or whatever, are jpegs or gifs, I think it can use them.

Jessie, that little rolling ad on every page on the MHN is a gif.

That's an animated GIF, they aren't all animated. That isn't likely to work here, but maybe I can check it out eventually

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
