Edit blog entries from your desktop

Windows Live Authors is a Microsoft tool that lets you edit your blog's content without access to the CMS control panel. Although the project was canceled in 2012, it has been brought back to life and can now be downloaded and used freely, because it has turned into open source.

Is it easy? Once you have installed the program, asking which content manager you are using, it's WordPress, Blogger, or many others compatible. By entering the URL and your login information, you can start creating new entries, save them as drafts and even without using any web browser, you can even publish it from your desktop.

It includes all the basic features of the original editor: You can write, attach to multimedia files, and use the same custom tags using the original editor. This encloses an interface that looks a lot like old office 2010. Short, this is a straightforward, realistic tool that is ideal for creating content for your blog.

Open Live Writer, a bright text editor for bloggers

Windows Live Authors were a useful external text editor that created a draft of the blog and even released their tools from the device, in addition to the need to access their CMS's control panel. But it has not been updated since 2012, and it is now revived as a free, fully independent and open source program.
