But I’ve also installed some of the Windows Live software to get a sense of how it works – and I am making this post with Writer. It seems unnecessary. It has all the right tool: inserting images, formatting, it will eve do tables. But it doesn’t have quite the posting management that would be useful in a standalone blogging app.
It seems to tie into WordPress pretty well. That means I don’t have to use MS Live for posting, so I’ll give it a short try.
Now it’s a matter of solving that boot issue.
Update: Writer handles image linking to flickr with aplomb. I dragged the image in this post from my main flickr page. Writer inserted the thumbnail; and linked it to the image page on flickr automagically.
