The Windows Live team has just released the best blogging tool ever: Live Writer. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it really has made it so much easier to write blogs. So far I have it working effortlessly with my Work blog (this one), my personal one (with Blogger--which I've been using long before they it became Google) and one I keep at WordPress (which, once I've had more time to work on it might become my main one).
I like blogging for several reasons, but the main one is that it makes it easier for me to keep track of what my friends find interesting. I follow hundreds of RSS feeds, scanning them regularly for updates, which is relatively easy these days because most people only post once a week or so. Hopefully that will change when they see how super-easy it is to post with Live Writer.
