Yikes...I'm having an affair ... with WLW!

Posted by Liz McCoy Friday, July 11, 2008

WLW Windows Live Writer...I have been an avid Scribefire supporter for over a year and really thought they could do no wrong.

That is until I started looking for an add-in or something that would automatically link phrases/words I use frequently to the websites that I normally link them to. 

I wasn't looking to add advertisements just something to make hyperlinking easier.  So I googled but could not find anything. 

I asked a web developer friend, Denny if he was aware of anything out there, and luckily he had time to put together this QuickLinks application on his website.  Yippie thanks Denny!

I start reading my google reader and come across a blog post talking about Windows Live Writer and how much she loves this application.  She mentions how it auto links but doesn't think it is that great of a feature...I WAS SO EXCITED to read that and started researching.  Yippie really close to what I was looking for!!!

It was a hard decision though, I am not a fan of any Microsoft Live products. And I'm a huge google follower (you might say addict).  I love this post about the difficult decision to CHOOSE microsoft over another product.

  • I've only been using it for a little bit and (gulp) I'm in love!
  • It works great with blogger.
  • Lets me put in my categories and set a publish date. 
  • I've already started setting up my link glossary.
  • Easily blogged with an embedded video.

I highly recommend Windows Live Writer!!! 

I will certainly miss the portability of ScribeFire. I have that on all my computers and I love how quick and easy it is to use in firefox. I'm pretty sure I will still use ScribeFire for blogging on my laptops and will use the QuickLinks application to do my linking.

Let me know if you download WLW and if you love it as much as I do!!!
