How do you update your blog?

Ever since I started using WordPress, I was looking for a good blogging client.  I started out using Blogdesk, and for a free blogging client, it was great.  Even blogging straight from the admin page is pretty good, but I prefer a client on my local computers.  I would prefer something free since I am on 3-4 different computers on a given day.

Recently, I tried Blogjet which proved to be quite nice.  What I didn’t like about it was the price.  Sorry, but $50 is just too much for a product that isn’t even being developed right now.  The last update was made last year.  Paying that much for a product that isn’t even being actively improved just doesn’t impress me.

A few days ago I uncovered Windows Live Writer.  At first, I was hesitant to even try it.  After all, its a Microsoft product and I just didn’t think would work with WordPress which is an open source project.  Boy, was I wrong.  Windows Live Writer interfaces with many major blogs like Blogger, Livejournal, and WordPress.  It is much more feature rich than Blogdesk.  Best of all, its free!
