Geeks With Blogs
Saqib Ullah BootStrapper Know How

Microsoft greatest tool that you can use to write blogs. One of great feature of Live Writer is you can easily write your blog offline and save it as a Draft. Live Write also give us an option to change view post, like Normal, Web Layout etc. Live Writer allow us to manage multiple blog account simultaneously. Live Writer environment is fully rich for text editing, like inserting pictures, URL and spell checking all these features is available for the blogger in the one integrated environment. One of the feature that I like very much is web layout editing called WYSIWYG view, its give us a feeling that blogger write our blog on real web site.

You can easily configure the Windows Live Writer for geekswithblogs.

When your site (GWB) gets the upgrade to subText 2.0 you will not need to go through all that setup as the new version of ST and current WLW support RSD and mediaObject (?)

No configuration needed for either blog host or ftp host.

Of course, if you can't/don't host your images in your blogs file system, that changes things a little...
