To make the process easier I plan on utilizing Windows live writer. The reason for using live writer is the simple ease of use and great layout functions it allows. I currently use WordPress as my blog engine. It is fantastic and I can’t say enough about this blog engine. However, I find that writing in the small text window is difficult when attempting to add a lot of content.
Live Writer is basically a scaled down word processor. It works seamlessly with WordPress and give you the ability to do offline writing. I have used it in the past but did not make blogging that much of a priority.

In more recent weeks I have noticed a trend of blogs to start using livewriter as the editor. You can see the increase from builtwith.com trends
