Trying “windows live writer”

I’ve just heard about this way of blogging and am intrigued to see if any of you use it and is it any better than just using blogger itself.

A while back I did some shots of new work for the website so thought I’d share one or two here with some more detail.  I love doing small pieces with the textiles.  In a way they are a method of sketching the environment, making colour notes and exploring small detailed compositions quickly.  They develop a spontaneous response to the creative spark and I’m often taken with them, not only as small pieces themselves but as Marquettes for bigger pieces.

I am going to post more soon but would just like to see how this “writer” works.

I like Live Writer because it "keeps" my posts for me to retrieve whenever I want, it's controllable and stable. I don't lose posts half way through when whatever progam it is decides to fall over and swallow a whole post in one mouthful. I can work offline and post when I'm ready...

I guess I'm a convert!

Yep, me too, although I have been using Blogger lately but will probably go back to Livewriter as Blogger is unpredictable.

I'm glad to see you have given it a go Helen. It works for me for the same reasons as Gill's.

I'd not heard of Live Writer. I hope you will let us know what you think of it!

I tried it too and liked the feel of it, but my son said my posts didn't look as good, he said the pics came up smaller, so I went back to blogger, I can only use it on the dreaded PC anyway!

Your little piece of textile art is exquisite!
