I thought I'd have a go at using the Windows Live Writer to add blog entries.
The configuration to be able to blog to blogger from here is pretty easy, we'll see if it works as well as it would imply.
I have tried this with Writely, now Goolgelized, and it work from time to time but was not consistent.
I have the same (if not more) options for editing in Live Writer.
I want to see if I can unlink myself from having to log in to Blogger all the time, of course as you can expect the toolbar that includes folio and the blog tools is only visible in IE as far as I can tell.
