Windows 7: New Plug-ins Available for Windows Live Writer

17 Dec 2008   #1

New Plug-ins Available for Windows Live Writer


3 new Plug-ins for Windows Live Writer were recently release that I think bloggers who live and breath in Windows Live Writer (such as myself) will appreciate. These plug-ins were created by the awesome Windows Live Writer Team here at Microsoft.

DiggThis – Add a “DiggThis” badge to your blog posts so your readers can quickly “digg” your blog posts. The plug-in offers several different “styles” of badges to choose from, as well as alignment options for where its placed on your blog. Download the plug-in here.

Twitter Notify: This plug-in will automatically “tweet” the title and link to your blog to your Twitter account when you publish a blog post. Download the plug-in here.

Flickr Upload: When you insert an inline image in a blog post in Windows Live Writer it also uploads that image to Flickr you when publish your post. Download the plug-in here.

You can download the latest version of Windows Live Writer in the new Windows Live Essentials suite today at Some of the new features include:

  • Insert and upload Windows Live photo albums
  • Insert and publish video to YouTube
  • Server-side tagging (support coming soon to and BlogEngine.NET)
  • Improved blog account setup
And there is more! You can read about what’s new in the latest Windows Live Writer release via the Windows Live Writer Team Blog.

Windows Live Writer is a must-have tool for bloggers.

- unfortunately, I am a horrible typist and occasionally I forget to spell check my typing and thus some think I am just as bad at grammatical and diction choice, when in fact it is my typing alone that gets me - so that was humor on my part as I could easily see a journalist missing that since 99.9956% of reporters I know do *not* copy edit* their own material....

Having been a reporter, photographer, copy editor and layout editor for a newspaper in the past (at a college) I am one of the few that *can* and *does* - but even then, I make mistakes....

Oh, and although those beta tools will install on Vista x64, they will *NOT* install on XP x64
