Using Windows Live Writer to publish this post

I downloaded Windows Live Writer today and am using it to publish this post.

Why Live Writer and not the Wordpress interface? No real reason. The nice thing about live writer is I get the benefits of using a desktop app instead of a web app. It is faster, can work offline, and HTML editing is a bit easier (yes, I am a web developer but it is nice to work a layer above HTML sometimes).

Some of the really cool things are it is pulling almost all my data from Wordpress. All my categories, tags, settings are here, which is nice.

My only question is how is uploading this picture going to work? If you are reading this, you already know whether it worked or not, unfortunately, I have no clue what is going to happen.
