I'm a sucker for new programs even if they aren't particularly useful. Windows Live Writer seems nifty. It's a program you put on your desktop that you can use to write blog posts and upload them without having to connect to a particular website, etc. It's WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get" for you non-nerdy) and makes it pretty easy to edit and publish posts from what I can tell. Blogger has its own fairly useful post-writing tool but I guess this is cool too. I'm sure there are all sorts of features I know nothing about. My biggest problem with this program is that it's a bit harder to do the picture thing than with Blogger, and the difficult of entering tags/labels for the posts. This post is sort of a dry run.
Anyway, we'll see if this is actually useful or something I stick with. But for now it's fun enough to keep my attention.
