Just Playin…

 You know how it is when you get a new toy..ya just gotta play with it.  Using Live Writer to blog with is really fun.   I love how it places photos where you actually want them to be and in the order you want them—something I always struggled with using Blogger.  Even though I would load them in reverse order, if I wanted more than 5 photos, it just didn’t cooperate!   I have also been interested in watermarking my photos.  Piece of cake with Live Writer.

I like the ability to tilt pictures.   There are more options I will explore soon.   I also like the ease with which you can make a list.  Here’s a Things To Do:

  1. Go shopping for one-speed bikes with coaster brakes with DH
  2. Learn how to use our new portable GPS for geocaching before our trip to Tennessee next week 
  3. Start a checklist for the trip
  4. Continue lessons with my next door neighbor on giving shots to my diabetic cat
  5. Gather some handwork to take along on the trip

I like that “crossing out” feature:

Today is a nice gorgeous day in the neighborhoodI should be out playing exercising instead of being on the computer.

Tables can be fun too,

 

Wacky Webs String Quilt Add borders to the long ends Pull scraps in color scheme
Chocolates & Cherries Big stitch quilt with brown perle cotten Mark fans pattern
Hot Salsa Nights Piece blocks together Arrange on design wall

 

 

 I know there is much more to it but that’s enough for today!

Well, what do you know, it sounds like something to try. So you just copy and paste into Blogger when you're done? The spacing in Blogger absolutely drives me mad, also the uploading photo order thing, I swear sometimes it goes in reverse order, then when I cleverly load my photos in reverse order, it just leaves them in the order I loaded them.

Hey the bike - I got a Schwinn retro bike last year. One speed pedal brakes at KMart . check it out. Look at my July 1 2008 entry on my journal.

You are having such fun. I love the features you've shared . . . . time to go investigate *s8

So, is it pretty self explanatory or are you a techy person? I've heard about it but not sure I want to invest time in the Learning curve! How about a tutorial!

You have me convinced I need to try this program. I think the most aggravating thing about posting to my blog is I never know what it is going to look like. I will work to get it just right, and then inadvertenly delete my picture and have to reload, which takes forever, and then struggle with the spacing all over again. So, guess I will give it a try. Thanks for the information.

thay's just plain cool, I have problems all the time maybe I need to learn something new?

I downloaded it several months ago and used it a few times and for some reason went back to using blogger. I'll have to check it out again, I don't think I'd figured out all the features before.

You talked me into it! I downloaded Windows Live Writer as soon as I saw your post and I think it's going to do just what I want. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
By the way, I always enjoy your blog.
