I have been looking for a utility so that I could edit my blog offline and post whenever I went online. Then I came across Windows live writer. This is program helped me to write posts at my comfort when ever I wanted.
The program can be downloaded from Windows live website.
Installation is a breeze. Though it might take some time to download the files or you can download the full setup from the Cnet downloads.
Once installed you need to configure it for your blog. But before that you need to configure some changes on your wordpress blog to allow for remote publishing.
Go to settings >> writing and under Remote Publish allow XML – RPC
Now open windows live writer and set it up for your blog.
Go to the blogs in the Menu bar and click Add Blog Account
Select the other blog service option.
Enter your Blog url, username and password. And if you don’t want to enter the password again and again, check remember password.
Live writer will Analyze the blog detect the theme and you are done.
After this the application asks you to enter your Blogs name and Finish. And you are ready to make your posts.
