I've been spending a lot of time researching where to post my next blog... which site to use, how to publish it best, what topics, what domain names.... all these questions have flown through my radar and in my research I have found a great new tool that will help me accomplish my next foray into blogging with much ease.
Windows Live Writer Betais a new tool by Microsoft that they've published and are distributing freely for bloggers to use. It is thus far a great tool for publishing and formatting your blogs properly for multiple sites.
I have used it recently on one of my experimental blog sites... and basically what I've done is take the HTML codes from my ActiveRain posts and put them into the HTML window of Windows Live Writer.... then I switch over to WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) mode which operates almost exactly like Microsoft Word to reformat and make everything look RIGHT in the window provided.
The cool functions include:
Formatting specific to the blog site you use: If you are a TypePad user, you set up an "account" in Live Writer that has the formatting set for not only TypePad but for your personal formatting/settings/themes/colors
Multiple Accounts: lets you publish to multiple blogs even if they are on different hosts
Templates: the templates are the "windows" of your site... as they're formatted specifically to the parameters of Typepad, Blogger, etc... you work in that window and know exactly how it will look
Publish to site button: finish your blog and click this button and it uploads the post and all the pictures at once to your site.
Control: After learning about the SEO techniques you can put them into use on here very easily to maximize the SEO power of your site.
Offline Editing: Away from the office and looking for something to do? You don't need the Internet to Blog!
