I clicked a button on my computer’s toolbar (it looks like a little pencil) just to see what it did, and I found out that I can write a blog post without even going to BlogSpot. It does it through Windows Live.
Believe it or not, writing the post through Windows Live I actually have more editing options than I do when writing it through BlogSpot. I could probably do some of these things through BlogSpot if I knew more HTML, but I don’t, so it’s neat to have these options at the touch of a button.
I can add maps, horizontal lines, a table, a video, and smilies. Lots and lots of smilies.
The other neat thing is that the template that I write on looks just like my actual blog page; column width, colors, and everything. So as I’m writing, I can see exactly what my finished post will look like to readers.
It even has a word counter.
Now, I click “publish” and see if this thing really works…
