The Blog Tool

Hail my running brothers and sisters!  Despite my claims to geeky awesomeness, it appears that I’m behind the curve on some nice bloggy tools.  Thanks to aron and her great blog for tipping me off to the blog tools she’s using.  On her recommendation, I downloaded Windows Live Writer to see if I liked it better than Blogger’s rigid format.  So far it works and looks a lot like a very bare Microsoft Word.  Essentially you set up your post in Writer, and then upload it to your blog host.  You have a little more control over image size, effects (I rotated the image a bit) and placement.  You can also put a hyperlink in a picture as I did below.  I was hoping that it would help me with my layout in Blogspot, but it looks like that may require some playing to find what I need.  It works well with Internet Explorer, which is fine, but lately I’ve been a Chrome guy.  I’ll let you know how the experiment goes.  No hard numbers today.  It was a rest day and I was in a CLE all day.  Tomorrow is a long run though, so you should get a recap on that.  Later kids!
