Windows Live Writer rocks!

I’m writing this post using Windows Live Writer (which I found out about through Jeff Chausse), and I love it already!  I always felt there was a place for a desktop application that can help with one’s online tasks.  There’s something different about launching an application from the desktop, versus going to Firefox, typing in a URL or going to a bookmark (which so easily become messy), and having to enter my password again.  On a busy day, I’m more likely to just not bother with all those steps.

This desktop app is free, it’s got cool “Insert” functions (“Insert Map”, “Insert Video”, etc), and it’s nicely usable!  I just feel so much more at home with a desktop app, as opposed to a web app that, despite all of the Web 2.0 advances, still feels like a contrived user experience that’s trying to hard to be something it isn’t.

Like Jeff, I highly recommend Windows Live Writer.  A good idea turned into a great product!
