Microsoft Windows Live Writer was the one of the best blog publishing tool, as it was free included in windows live tool, it was favourate of mine too.
Windows Live Writer was based on Onfolio Writer, a product Microsoft obtained from the acquisition of Onfolio. On November 6, 2007 version 2008 was released. It included inline spell checking, table editing, ability to add categories, page authoring for WordPress and TypePad, support for excerpts and extended entries, improved hyperlinking and image insertion, and a new “Paste Special” function. The last major release of Windows Live Writer was released in 2012 (end-of-life).
An open source fork of Windows Live Writer was released as Open Live Writer on December 9, 2015. Windows Live Writer gone, his place is taken by Open Live Writer.
Open Live Writer features WYSIWYG authoring, photo-publishing and map-publishing functionality, and is currently compatible with WordPress.com, WordPress (hosted), and Blogger, with support for more platforms planned. The app’s source code is available on GitHub under the MIT License.
