Tip to Use Windows Live Writer Effectively

If you remember I recommended to you how using Offline Blog Editors especially Windows Live Writer will help you in writing fast and better and without distraction. Now most of you argue that Windows Live Writer does not support either this feature or that.

Well I agree with you. Even on wordpress, there is no support for Custom Fields with WLW. Also you can’t check list of existing tags as you can check with category making chances of duplicate tags being generated over time even with a spelling or case change in new tag name.

But let me tell you, you forgot WLW has a very unique and easy feature to overcome this. Its called Post Draft and Edit Online. You can write the post when not connected to net, taking your full time. Now save it as local draft, connect to the net and click Post Draft and Edit online. Now it will be saved in your wordpress system as a draft post and corresponding edit page will open where you can make the final touches like selecting right tags, putting keywords or descriptions, adding custom smileys and writing custom fields which should not take much of your time. And now using the above tip you can publish a lot more posts than you regularly do.

Do share your WLW tips if you know more. I am enjoying WLW to the fullest especially after getting to use this tip fully.
