My first blog from Live Writer

This is my first blog post that I have generated in Windows Live Writer Beta.  Until now, I have used the online editor.  The fat client sports a cool WYSIWYG editor and a lot of great accelerator keys.  Publishing is a snap and seems to take less time compared with the web editor.

The team has provided an SDK and encourages the development of plugins.  There is a page dedicated to these here.  I found a neat one that helps insert code snippets.  Insert Code for Windows Live Writer supports C#, HTML, MSH, JavaScript, Visual Basic and TSQL.  I wish that there was a way to assign accelerator keys to the plugins.  For now, I'll just have to go through the menu.
