Attention Blog Writers!

Posted 15 May 2009 - 06:56 AM

If you're anything like me, you've been posting your creations using built in CMS from Blogspot, Wordpress, etc.

Well forget about that! Use Windows Live Writer. Jesus Christ, how did I not know about this tool before! It would've saved me a ton of trouble.

Damn you Windows! Damn you to hell. I was just about to leave for Ubuntu (to try out SharpDevelop) and you pull a fast one on me.

Anyways if you guys want to try it out here is the link:

So what is so epic about this vs WordPress?

edit - this should probably be in the blog forum!

You want to know what's so EPIC?

Let me show you:

Is that some REAL TIME preview of the posts your building on the fly. You bet your programming ass it is! :pirate:

It downloads your theme and whatnot to accurately draw a preview of how the post would look in real time.

I tried to give a shit, but I failed. I'd rather use Ubuntu than use windows for a real-time preview of my blog posts.

Congrats, I've never such postering by either side of the OS war by arguing over the merits of blogging. Which, if I may take a moment to remind all participants, is an online activity, accessed through a web browser--thus OS is utterly irrelevant.

I still fail to see what is so epic. Real time preview of a blog post? I wouldn't particularly care. Write your post and hit preview, even DIC blogs have a preview button. So it cuts out one step for me, hardly something that would make me drop everything else in favor of this solution.

Is there anything else epic about it? :blink:

If you ever tried posting a very large tutorial with a lot of formatting in Wordpress you would see why this is epic.

His blog is in DreamInCode, it's CMS system was built with programmers in mind. Wordpress was not, that's why this tool is great.

I use wordpress and like I said Scribe does everything I want and more. I also use Linux exclusively. I would never base my entire OS decision on a web software for a blog.

deepglue555 you may want to start a new thread to get your answer.
also when i write to my blog its for the most part text editor and copy and past. also when using wordpress you can change the amount of lines you see when writing a post and make it full screen so writing long posts isnt an issue. I can see how this is a fun new tool but wordpress is just to amazing to switch from.
