New “Blog This” Firefox Add-on for Windows Live Writer


If you are a regular user of the blogging software Windows Live Writer and the Firefox web browser, you definitely want to check out the new “Blog This” Firefox extension. The add-on, designed for Windows Live Writer 2.0, was updated earlier this month so it works with the latest version of Live Writer from the newly refreshed Windows Live Essentials suite. With the Blog This add-on installed, a button is added to your Firefox toolbar which will start a new blog post in Windows Live Writer pre-populated with content and the title from the current web page.  You can blog the whole page (don’t steal, though, OK?) or just select snippets (do that, it’s nicer).

If you’re already using the older Blog This extension, you should first uninstall it before trying the new one. The extension is still considered experimental, so you’ll need to log with your account info at if you want to try it out.

(Thanks, Brandon, for the tip!)
