Crossposting Blogs: Blogger, LiveJournal, Tyepad, Wordpress, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter,

Today I am trying out Windows Live Writer after a long search to crosspost blogs and updates.  Those of you that know me, know I frequently use to update my statuses across almost every service supports (about 30 sites).  While it works great for status updates, I did not find it to be preferable for blogs.

My most current blogs have been on Myspace.  Nothing seems to work directly with Myspace’s blog.  That makes me sad.  However, Windows Live Writer does integrate with Blogger, LiveJournal, Typepad, Wordpress, and (via a plug-in called xPollinate).

Windows Live Writer (WLW) only updates a single blog at a time by default.  However, with xPollinate, it will update all blogs you are able to setup as accounts in WLW.

WLW is a WYSIWYG editor.  It allows you to insert hyperlinks, ordered and unordered lists, various fonts, etc.


You can easily insert Photos from the desktop or web (respectively):


Video is no issue either:



Plug-ins let you easily integrate with Flickr, Picasa, or even maps (of my new place)

As far as I know, it is only a desktop application.  I do not think it currently has a web version.  I see that as a small hindrance when compared to the amount of features available with the app.  Of course, being able to crosspost and update all my social sites at once is fan-freaking-tastic.

Thanks Microsoft.  Please update for Myspace. :)
