I just downloaded and started using Microsoft Live Writer (beta) for this blog, since it met my two requirements for software (free and better than what I am doing now). So this is a test of how it works. If you are interested in trying it out yourself, go here. We’ll see how it works over the next few posts – it is supposed to be able to post to both blogger and wordpress blogs, as well as Microsoft’s new blogging service.  I’m told that Googles Docs and Spreadsheets can do the same thing, but what’s the point if you are already on the web?
