I remember how utterly excited I was when I Microsoft launched Windows Live Writer, a blog publishing client, several years ago as part of Windows Essentials, a suite of utility applications. No application came anywhere close to emulating its efficiency. In fact, it still remains unbeaten. Microsoft, unfortunately, seems to have abandoned the platform. There has been no update for several years and there have been rumours that the product will be thrown open to the open source community after Microsoft officially abandons the product. Nothing of this sort has happened. Maybe it's time to use Blogger's native web client or use the Android app (as I'm doing currently). Blogging still remains a fascinating indulgence. I wish I could regain my former momentum in posting regular updates.
