The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson
I was a bit late to checking out Windows Live Writer. The reason: the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin for WordPress. I didn’t see the point in authoring in a tool and then having to edit it in my browser.
Then I found the instructions for how to do the UTW tags from Live Writer: here.
Now I write and post all from Live Writer. Cool.
Tags: Live-Writer, UTW, Wordpress
I like LiveWriter fine, but there are a lot more things one can do with HTML than it allows. What I find most lacking is blockquotes. Without blockquotes I am nothing.
I must have Blockquotes, Robert.
I do try to use LiveWriter at least once a week, along with Performancing, Flock and a few other tools. Of the group, I’d say Performancing is still my favorite.

Have you tried the button on the toolbar that looks like a quote (the tab key triggers blockquotes too)? Is there something else you are looking for blockquoting?
Blockquotes work fine for me.
User error on your part? Do you have the first beta? Is it some issue with TypePad?
Oh look at that. Blockquotes.
Musta been thinking of something else. When I go back and look at my review of Live Writer, I say nothing about blockquotes. Now it’ll be bothering me for hours which one didn’t have blockquotes.
Anyway, I give a glowing review of Live Writer here:
My only reservations were these: http://ourfounder.typepad.com/leblog/2006/08/windows_live_wr.html
6. At least initially, it’s fatal flaws are: no tagging, no integration with flickr, and no integration with digg or del.icio.us.
Sorry, Spike. I love your blockquotes.
I don’t know about support for Flickr, digg, del.icio.us (maybe some plugin does this), but now tagging seems to be convered.
What version are you using? The WordPress / tagging integration required either the first LiveWriter beta and a plugin / or just the 2nd beta.
[...] Robert Anderson is now using Windows Live Writer. This has become my blog writer of choice. In fact, it has such a cool editor (i.e. it doesn’t add a bunch of crap-tags like Word) that I’m now using Windows Live Writer to create general HTML documents. [...]
