I wrote a post titled Using Windows Live Writer To Post and shared my personnal experience on how difficult it was to download the Free Windows Live Writer 2008. I was surprised that one of the Windows Live Writer Team member Joe Cheng, visited my blog and apologise in a comemnt for the inconvinience. That was not all, he also provided a link for a new version which can be downloaded easily, here is the link.
The most interesting aspect of his visit is the provision of a Video Tutorial that states in Simple Down To Earth manner, how to get Windows Live Writer, install it and start using it to blog. A friend of mine Mwangi of The Displaced Africans had earlier suggested that I write a tutorial for African bloggers who will most likely benefit from the software. I gave the excuse that I was not ready to produce such tutorial since I am just a new user. So it was with excitement that I grabbed the link for the Windows Live Writer Tutorial Video and pasted it in this post.
The 11minutes video tutorial is embedded below and I will encourage you to visit Joe Cheng’s blog to read more about what you can do with Windows Live Writer. I am really encouraged by the kind of support given by the technical team for this free software. It is the best experience I have had with Microsoft and I felt it is good to mention it. If I could complain when there is a hitch, courtesy demands that I commend the effort of the Windows Live Writer Team for their quick response. Thumbs up for the team.
Note: This is not a paid review (I wish it is), it is just my personal experience shared in all sincerity. If you are an experienced user of Windows Live Writer please share whatever tips or tricks you have learnt with us in the comment section. Cheers.
