Since you have got this far I’m assuming you know what a blog is. But did you know that if you have a blog, you don’t need to log in through a browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) to post on your blog?

I am currently writing this post on Windows Live Writer – a free download from Microsoft. It gives a WYSIWYG editor (what you see is what you get). You can edit your posting just like you would in a word processor. You can add hyperlinks, pictures, tables etc. And you can use pretty much any blog service. I’m currently using WordPress, but I’ve also used Blogger for example. The software guides you through setup and it finds works out automatically what the post will look like on your site – even showing you the background colours or theme of your blog.

You’re not limited to one blog or service either. If you have multiple blogs then you can switch between them and post into each one.

One great advantage of this is that you can start your posts offline, save them, and go back to them when you’re ready. You can then publish the post when you’re ready.

If you’re a blogger then I would definitely recommend software such as this.
