Windows Live Writer is a free premium Windows application for those who want to write professionally and want to bypass all hassles that they may face using online text editor of WordPress or any other blogging system. Live Writer is a software who anyone uses once and gets fall in love with it forever.
Before using Live Writer I was used to writing blog posts directly on WordPress text editor and there are many times when I lost my written article because of internet connection error or server error or browser malfunction. On the other hand Live Writer save the post immediately after a change and even if your Windows is crashed and your PC gets down, your article will be safe.
