Hey there!

I will be giving a Pick of the Week whether it is something to do with Hardware, Software or anything about with Computers. This is going to be something that I will publish on this site only.

This Week will have to be Windows Live Writer 2011

Download Free!

If you don’t know what this is I will paste a Full Explanation from Microsoft Below!

Windows Live Writer makes it easy to tell your stories like a professional blogger. You can create beautiful blog posts including photos, videos, and formatting, and see what it will look like online before you publish to your blog. Writer works with most major blogging services, including WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, and many more, so you can compose your blog post while offline, and then publish directly to your blog in minutes.

Windows Live Writer is part of Windows Live Essentials, which also includes Windows Live Messenger, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Mail, Family Safety, Windows Live Mesh, Bing Bar, Messenger Companion, Microsoft Silverlight, and Outlook Connector Pack (Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector and Social Connector Provider for Windows Live Messenger). You can install just Writer or all of Windows Live Essentials.
