Testing Out Windows Live Writer

I've been trying out BlogJet for the last month or so and when my trial period expired I decided to buy it.

Then as is typical in life, as soon as I'd paid for it I stumbled across the beta version of Windows Live Writer which seems to do almost everything that BlogJet does (well certainly what I need it to do), and best of all it's free.

I've found a couple of issues with Live Writer I don't like namely:

  • Sometimes it's not TRULY WYSIWYG more WYSINWYG
  • Content you copy from a web page and paste into it doesn't always display correctly 
  • There's no default way (that I've found), to set the default behaviour for how you want embedded links to open - I always want a hyperlink to open in a new window
  • There's no way of publishing the same post to multiple blogs at the same time - Ideally I just want to push a button and have it appear on all my blogs

(Some of these equally apply to BlogJet BTW).

These are certainly not that much of an issue that they're going to stop me using the product.
