Windows Live Writer Plug-ins

I love Windows Live Writer! It is the perfect application to use for posting to your blog (in my case Blogger). There’s also a ton of Writer plug-ins that extend the usefulness of this handy application. Two that I have just installed are the Twitter Notify and SnagIt Screen Capture plug-ins.

The Twitter Notify plug-in automatically posts a ‘tweet’ to your Twitter page when you make a new post, complete with a TinyURL.

The SnagIt plug-in requires that you already have Techsmith’s SnagIt installed, and it saves quite a few steps in capturing and inserting an image in your posts. Once installed, it is available from Writer’s Insert menu:

There are lots more Writer plug-ins here at the Windows Live Writer site:
